Our next stop after the windmills was to visit an organic dairy Farm.
We were shown the workings of an organic dairy farm. On the farms the cows are in huge sheds for most of the year due to the weather. Today they were out feeding on the lush grass.
In the background of this picture you can see the old and new windmills.
We were greeted by the young family and their dog. They served us cake, Tea, coffee and Raw Milk. I choose to have the raw milk. It was very yummy!
Walking around the farm and avoiding the cow dung was interesting to say the least!
This farm you can stay in your tent or caravan on a portion of the land. I didn’t take any pictures as to give these holiday makers their privacy.
The market price for organic milk is higher than conventional milk, and there is a high consumer demand for organic milk. So its more profitable to convert to organic farming than continue with conventional farming.
After a very interesting afternoon it was back on the coach and back to the Port of Amsterdam for our last evening on board our 6 star floating Hotel.
