Who are they?

Organic Farm Veld en Beek is a biologically dynamic mixed farm with dairy cattle, horticulture, dairy processing, arable farming, beef cattle, fruit cultivation and direct marketing of all products to 3400 members of its own customer association. The farm strives for ever more sustainable and closing cycles. Therefore, there is room for Horse traction on the farm, because horses do not use fossil fuel and minimally burden the soil and reproduce themselves.


A group of 5 volunteers will be trained to assist in teaching horses; Various materials are purchased, such as a farm wagon, trailer, shelter in the meadow and harness.

Next year a foal will be born, which will then have to be called. It is expected to take about five years to master the necessary skills and further teach the horses before a two-horse work can be carried out. Meanwhile, others are being trained who want to work with horses in agriculture.
