't Looveld

Traditional dairy farm in Zweeloo, Drenthe

Enjoy pure farm life with this hospitable family

Farmers Johan, farmer Matine and their six children are super proud of their traditional dairy farm in a truly beautiful spot in Zweeloo, Drenthe. Surrounded by meadows and overlooking the forest, here they enjoy each other, the animals and the nature around them.

Together with 2 farmers’ sons and 4 farmers’ daughters, this lovely family runs the dairy farm and farm campsite with pleasure and passion for many years now, and they love to give you an insight into daily life on the farm. Farmer Johan is a real ‘cow farmer’, with a heart for his animals and animal welfare. He likes to show you in the milk pit how his 90 ladies are milked 2-3 times a day. And you can always help him sweep the feed for the cows, look after the calves and take the cows from the meadow.

Matine’s passion also lies in farming work, despite teaching 3 days a week at secondary school as a physical education teacher. At home, she puts on her boots and will not turn her hand to milking, ensiling or driving a tractor. In fact, she likes nothing better. Their children also help a lot on the farm and campsite and are crazy about their animals. ‘t Looveld is a real family business and the Kamps family would like you to enjoy this.

Pony lovers will certainly get their money’s worth at ‘t Looveld: daughters Annemarie and Marjolijn love their ponies and regularly organise fun activities. You can go for a ride in the outdoor arena or go for a nice walk in the woods with one of the lovely ponies. The ponies, cows and calves are not the only inhabitants of ‘t Looveld. The rabbits, chickens, goats, sheep, cats and dog Kyra complete the herd and provide hours of cuddling fun. When farmer Matine or one of the children feed the animals, you are of course welcome to help.

And there is more to do. The kids can build huts, have fun on the trampoline, mess around in the mud kitchen or make yoghurt or ice cream from fresh milk. In bad weather, they can dive into the hay barn to chill out or play hide-and-seek.

If you are looking for a real farm holiday on a dairy farm where you immediately feel at home, then the Kamps family at ‘t Looveld is the place to be. The only risk is that the kids will soon only like fresh milk 😉.
