At the beginning of May it was announced that we were one of the winners of “Dronten’s best idea”! Following this win, we will start to organise workshops and birthday parties in our cheese factory. In particular for children from low-income families and children from primary schools in Dronten. We would like to teach and inform everybody about the origin of our food from their immediate environment. The children will take a look at our calves, cows and of course all the other animals we keep at the farm. Then they get to see a film about cheese making, followed by making their own cheese! They will have to be patient as it needs to store for three weeks first before the children receive their “own” cheese at home to enjoy. If you would like to know more about the possibilities of a workshop or organise a birthday party, please send us an email.
Tulip Route Flevoland has now come to an end. In recent weeks it has been very busy at De Kandelaar. Many visitors to Tulip Route Flevoland also visited De Kandelaar to take a look at the farm and the cheese factory. Our farmhouse cheeses and cheese platter-to-go were a great success. In the coming period we will work hard to replenish the stock. If you are looking for a particular flavour, please let us know and we will make your cheese to order.
Finally, work continued on the land as well. The potatoes have been planted, the sugar beets and corn have been sown and the first cut of grass has already been mowed. With the current rain fall, it will not be long before the first plants become visible. Fingers crossed for a nice summer!
