Sheep farm in Meliskerke, Zeeland

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…….. Count sheep when you can’t get to sleep. You won’t get bored at this sheep farm near the coast of Zeeland. Bet the kids won’t be bored for a moment here!

The farm has been owned by the De Korte family as a sheep dairy for many years. For the past few years, Albert and Annelie have been at the helm of the farm and have joined forces with Rutger and Alide. With their four young kids and dog Laiyka, they moved to Zeeland and now the four of them run this farm and farm shop.

Rutger is a sheep farmer at heart and milks the flock of over 200 sheep daily. This sheep’s milk is turned into delicious sheep’s cheese and yoghurt, which is also sold in the farm shop, Annelie’s domain. Of course, you can watch the sheep being milked and help farmer Rutger take care of the lambs and sweep the barn. Have you acquired a taste for sheep shearing? Farmer Rutger will be happy to show you how!

Not only does the farm have lots of sheep and lambs, but there is also an animal pasture and cuddle barn with lovely rabbits, chickens, goats, ducks and a sweet pony that all need feeding and care. Farmer Albert could really use your help with this. And do you like tractors? Farmer Albert will proudly show you his tractor, and who knows, you might even get to go for a ride, how cool!

And there is even more to do. With farmer Annelie or Alide, you can make a sheep out of real sheep’s wool, a lovely little craft! And of course you can also play here for hours, racing on the go-karts, doing tricks on the trampoline, climbing on one of the many play frames or getting dirty in the water and sand playground.

In good weather, you can be on one of Walcheren’s many beautiful beaches within 10 minutes. The well-known seaside resorts Domburg and Zoutelande and the cosy town of Veere are also just a few kilometres away.

And in the evening, crawl back under the wool 😉 in your luxury tent on this cool farm.

On Sundays, Sunday rest applies at FarmCamps Mariekerke. On this day, the farm shop is closed and no activities are organised. But of course you can play everywhere and watch and cuddle the animals.
