For the tenth year in a row, the Dutch dairy brand Campina organized the ‘Open Farm Days’. Thanks to the beautiful Spring weather and more than 40,000 visitors the Open Farm Day, again, was a great success. 27 farmers in all parts of the Netherlands opened their barn doors to the public. Olympic champion Epke Zonderland visited the farm of his family in Friesland for a meet & greet with young fans. Together with Campina, Epke puts Dutch (amateur) athletes in the spotlight.
On Monday May 25 (Whit Monday) there will be a second Open Farm Day. Between 10 am and 4 pm visitors can get a taste of farm life. On Friday May 15, farmers explained where milk comes from and visitors could get a taste of farm life. There were also family activities like a farmer’s assault course, churnlifting and of course the farm tour. The same activities will be available on Monday May 25 as well.
