There it is, nearly another summer gone and we are finally enjoying a beautiful but late summer. The colours at dawn and dusk are such a beautiful event at De Kandelaar. Over the summer DeLaval has filmed a superb documentary about the Voluntary Milking System which we have been using for over 16 years. There is an interesting interview with Dad and Joris about their experiences with the milking robot. See the full report via this link. In addition, Bert Rijk has also taken some stunning aerial pictures with his drone.
Meanwhile, the fifth cut of grass was mowed and last week our contractor Frens from Hulshort had chopped the corn. The yield was less than previous years, but the product seems to be of excellent quality. We have to wait a little longer for the delicious potatoes that we use for fries to be harvested but the onions will be harvested this month. Bulb company Fa. de Wit is already busy with preparations for the planting of the new tulip bulbs. Next year, in cooperation with Tulips Route Dronten, we will yet again create walking, cycling and car routes along the tulip fields.
During this year we have received lots of different nationalities in our Bed and Breakfast, from the Netherlands to Japan. Next month, many visitors will be staying at the B&B who have booked the special deal “one night at the B&B and entry to Walibi Fright Night”. If you would like to visit please book quickly because full is full.
