It was a farmers tale of love and romance but with a twist when Floor (originally from Groningen) joined Bart on his farm after the two met on a dating site for farmers. They have been living together on the farm for several years now and have two daughters and a son, Eefje, Vera and Pim.
Together they have transformed a traditional dairy farm into a fun, educational and friendly ‘DIY farm’ where the kids can play while still learning about life on the farm.
And it’s not just cows who reside on this farm. Farmer’s Wife Floor is passionate about all animals, especially horses. She is a qualified Riding Instructor and regularly gives lessons in their beautiful outdoor school to the local children as well as guests on the farm.
This farm offers something for everyone; whether you prefer to help Farmer Bart care for the cows or join Farmer’s Wife Floor as she tends to the small animals or ponies. Or maybe you prefer to play out in the open pastures. Whatever you choose, we are sure you will have the time of your life in this stunning part of North Limburg.
On the outskirts of Beringe along a quiet road, lies this delightful Dairy Farm run by Farmer Bart and his wife Floor. A lovely, peaceful location where you can fully enjoy life on the farm and take advantage of the beautiful nature nearby.
