5x the best farms in and around Amsterdam 
Put your wooden clogs on, get your wheelbarrow and turn on some country tunes; it's time to let your inner farmer out! We've selected the 5 best farms in & around Amsterdam.

Fruittuin van West 
The 'Fruit garden from West' is huge, so be careful not to get lost in the orchard. Here, you can pick your own seasonal veggies or try to count the amount of chickens walking around (hint: there's hundreds) - who's eggs you can collect by the way. Once you are done, there is a cozy café and a large store where you can do your organic grocery shopping. Tip: the chick corner in the stalls offers entertainment for hours. 

Goat farm Ridammerhoeve
Ready for a goat-overload? Then this is the place to be! From cuddling with goats, making your own goat cheese to eating (you guessed it) goatmilk ice-cream. Walk around the stalls (if you don't get run over by the energetic goats at least) or take a seat on the large tractor outside. Tip: on Saturday and Sunday morning they organize 'goat yoga', meaning you do your stretches in the middle of the curious, stubborn goats; giggles guaranteed.

Farm NoordOogst
Farm 'North Harvest' is the place to find lovely organic and sustainable vegetables, no wonder many Amsterdam restaurants get their ingredients from this place. Currently, they are building a playground where children can learn about and connect with nature. Tip: right next to NoordOogst, you will find winery No Chateau - yes, a Dutch winery- which is definitely worth a visit as well.

On this small yet very cozy farm you will find a wide variety of farm animals. This farm is 70 years of age (omg, vintage!), so the experienced volunteers can tell you all you ever wanted to know about cows or guinea pigs. For the travelling Amsterdam citizen, they also provide a pet hotel. Tip: if you ask politely, they will sell you the honey from the local bees. 

City farm Westerpark
In the middle of the Westerpark you will find a farm focused on making parents and children familiar with (taking care of) farm animals. Throughout the year several seasonal events will be held, such as a sheep shepherd party and a live Christmas stall. Tip: on Fridays, the cultured pigs listen to classical music inside the stall (true story).

Please ask our host for directions, opening times and information about (seasonal) events. 

Oh and for your information, forget what we said about the wooden clogs; they hurt.
