Bed & Breakfast is open again

We have resumed the running of the B&B De Kandelaar following the abrupt closure after the unexpected loss of Marc.  Our guests are more than welcome again in the Bed & Breakfast De Kandelaar. Life on the farm continues and keeps us busy with looking after our livestock and land. In collaboration with IVN, there will […]

Thank you for all your support!

How great is the loss when someone is no longer here! It is unimaginable how many visits, messages, phone calls, cards, flowers and help we have received following the unexpected loss of Marc. The farewell was moving and poignant and gives us a lot of support and strength. Marc lives on in everyone he knew and […]

Sad news De Kandelaar

Tulip route Flevoland starts!

Successful Tour of Zuyderzee

What a wonderful week we have had!   After the cold and the freezing weather, there was beautiful spring weather with a lovely sun.  Immediately that means more work on the farm.  Our contractor Frens applied our cow’s manure to the land. Let the grass grow! But there was much more activity at De Kandelaar, because […]

De Kandelaar’s cheese factory and shop is open!

Sometimes small thoughts can suddenly become reality. Joris and Marc would like to get more value for their products, Lisette enjoys cheese making and Mariska likes to serve her guests products from their own company during breakfast or lunch. What could be better than cheese made from the cows’ milk of De Kandelaar. And so […]

New year, time for new plans!

The beets are waiting in the yard to go to the Cosun factory next week. Despite the fact that it is not that busy […]
