We offer a fun place to stay on a beautiful farm, but we don't allow
visitors to do chores or milk cows. As time and weather permit,

enter the actual operation, so don't plan on that.
Bring your bike, good walking shoes - and of course, your camera!

of bedrooms and bathrooms gives everybody some "space", yet the family
is together in a private apartment.
