Hoeve Luyterheyde

Cattle farming in Neerkant, North Brabant

Exceptionally natural and burgundisch cool

Frank Luyten and Eva van der Heyden met over twenty years ago at work in the banking sector. Although they had a career in the financial and construction world, they felt very much attracted to the outdoor and farm life and so they decided to change course to do what felt right. Frank did an internship at a dairy farm to learn the tricks of the trade and the first four “Brandrode” cattle were purchased. They bought a farm in a nearby and made the move to Neerkant in Brabant province, together with their two kids Roos and Teun. Farmhouse “Hoeve Luyterheyde”, a combination of their surnames, was created. Quite a challenge, but with the motto ‘Komt goed’ (“it’ll be fine”) their dream becomes more and more reality and you as a guest can now also enjoy it.   The farm, on the edge of the Brabantse Peel, is completely self-sufficient. The cattle graze outside all year round.Animal welfare, sustainability and nature conservation are paramount, nature-inclusive farming is what they call it.This is clearly reflected in Frank and Eva’s farm. Not only in the form of their rare Dutch farm animals (also called’living heritage’) such as the Brandrode cattle and the Bonte Bentheimer land pigs with their beautiful pattern of blackspots and large, funny hanging ears, but also in the surrounding nature. For example, the grass meadow is very richin herbs and Frank and Eva own a piece of forest, where the pigs and cows can walk around and take shelter inmoments of bad weather   The pigs and growing herd of Brandrode cattle are not the only residents of Hoeve Luyterheyde. There are now also sheep, ponies, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats living on the farm. Farmers Eva,  Frank and the kids can therefore use some help with feeding all the animals, checking the herd and splitting wood for the campfire. And there’s more to do. On the fields near the tents and in the adjacent forest, the children can play to their heart’s content and discover the farm. The ponies love to go out on a ride, being cuddled and brushed and dog Sammie enjoys all the extra attention on his morning walk. And have you ever made jam or applesauce yourself? Farmer Eva is going to teach you. Do you prefer to relax? We haven’t even mentioned the lovely outdoor pool yet.   As you can see staying with the farmer means enjoying animals and nature. No worries! It’ll be fine at Hoeve Luyterheyde!

Finding out is fun

Your farming adventure would not be complete without learning something during your time on the farm. Farmers Frank and Eva will personally take care of that. You may help Frank and Eva in their daily chores as they take care of and feed all the animals on the farm. Sammie the dog also loves to start the day with a nice morning walk through the forest, and you don’t have to go far to check in on the herd of cattle to see how they are doing! If you love animals, then this farm is just the treat you are looking for!   If you prefer to play, then you will certainly get your money’s worth on the farm. Go-karting, playing hide and seek in the forest, baking sand cakes in the mud kitchen, doing somersaults on the trampoline, splashing in the pool, discovering the farmyard with your new friends. Everything is possible and allowed.

Crafting fun with the Farmer’s Wife

Are you partial to a spot of jam or apple sauce? Then you should definitely take the opportunity to make them with farmer’s wife Eva. Depending on the season, you will pick fruit together, decorate your own pot and mix the ingredients. Farmer Eva will cook the jam or applesauce from the ingredients you have prepared and if you are careful, you can even help fill the jars with the piping hot sauce. Eva makes sure that the jam is ready in time for the next morning so you can spread it on your toast at breakfast, or bring it home as a souvenir. Sometimes there are no seasonal fruits available. Worry not, as farmer Eva always has an alternative up her sleeve. Children up to 6 years old can participate when accompanied by an adult.

Not a moment’s boredom!

From experience, we know you will probably find it hard to tear yourself away from the farm. Simply because the kids are having such a great time, they’ll just be too busy to be bored. And that’s when parents get that holiday feeling, right?   If you still want to see some of the local area, the Brabantse Peel has lots to offer. Walk through the Luyten family forest to the village of Neerkant straight from the farm. A little further on you will find nature reserve De Groote Peel. Peat was intensively extracted in the Peel for years resulting in a unique, vast nature reserve of former peat colonies where you can enjoy walking and cycling. Or go wild in the adventurous Klimpark Brabant.
