Besides tours for mixed groups of students and scientists, Dutch Farm Experience also organizes special visits for large scale dairy farmers. A group of six dairy farmers from Ireland came to better understand the lessons learnt and new insights of Dutch dairy farming today, with the focus on sustainability. What are the challenges and new techniques? They admired the biogas instalation, for example (in picture), discussed soil fertility, use of herbal products and farm economics.

Best is to come with a group of maximum 8 farmers for a 3-day tour. Fully organized! You will be picked-up from the airport and brough back after an inspiring and insightful week. Visits are organized according to your interest and preference. Please note you need to make your reservation in time!

Some comments of the Irish dairy farmer group visiting the Netherlands in November 2022: The program exceeded expectations and delivered exactly what we wanted… I felt there was enough time at every farm we visited… The program was very well organized and busy, which I like… I was very impressed with how much knowledge the people had in the area they are working in… The number of visits was just about right – plenty of time on each farm to have a good discussion… Keeping the groups 6-8 people is maximum..
