Active farm

Park Abbey has an active farm again. The BoerEnCompagnie is a small-scale, mixed agricultural company that, among other things, makes sure there is fresh milk in the vending machine at the Mariapoort. The kitchen garden of horticulture project De Wikke is an open garden, always open to hikers. And you can try out our fresh farm products in the Abbey’s shop of course!
