Den Bosch: Urban Farm – Kinderboerderij De Bossche Hoeve

The kids are settling in well here in the The Netherlands. As expected the language goes quickly and the kids are picking up so much Dutch each day.   On Wednesday, I joined them and drove them  +3, to the Kinderboerderij De Bossche Hoeve which is not to far from their school. It is nothing fancy like Davis Farmland but rather a simple, well-run urban farm where schools and families can visit while in the city.  It’s still early Spring so they were very busy putting together equipment like a new slides and pavement, etc.

The nieuwkomersklaas of 13 kids learned about the animals, fed them and enjoyed playing for a bit after some hot chocolate inside.

They have an albino peacock, along with some turquoise ones, but unfortunately it didn’t open it’s feathers while we were there.  First photo is mine but the second is from the internet web search.

Thursday, they are visiting a pig farm in Vinkle where they’ll learn about the pigs and make ice cream and if lucky, taste it.

There are several kinderboederij’s in the area, which we will also explore in time.  This website has a handy list and information about each one.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
