    25 augustus 2008
    Sint Nicolaashoeve 150 years old
    On Saturday 23 August 2008 we celebrated 150 years of the Saint Nicolas farm. Hundreds of people visited that day. Three of the them were Hendrikus, Jacobus en Johannes, representing the three farm labourers who lived on the farm around the start of the 19th centurey. They were amazed “The farm is still very recognizable, almost like it was in 1900. But what beautiful apartments are there now!. We used to sleep very differently. And the work has also become a lot easier. We used to need many farm hands, but now the farmer does it all himself with big machines.”

    About

    Working dairy and agriculture farm.

     

    De Sint Nicolaashoeve is a small scale farm. Approximately twenty cows are milked daily, with a further rearing of twenty young cows and calfs. The farm also grows wheat, sugar beats, maize and potatoes.

    From April to November the cows are outside in the meadows and come to the stable to be milked twice a day. In the winter, the cows walk about in the stable and stretch out and relax in a layer of straw.

    Farmer Gerard runs his farm in a very sustainable way. The cows eat the grass and maize from the farm. The straw the cows lie on comes from the farm and the manure of the cows is used to fertilise the crops on the farm.

    Guests of the Sint Nicolaashoeve may have a look around the stables. During such tour you will hear the full story about the farm. But you could also experience what it feels to be a farmer by doing farmer’s tasks such as milking and feeding a cow, and earn a farmer’s certificate.

     

    Home for farm labourers

     

    More than a hundred years ago the Sint Nicolaas farm was apart from an active farm also a home for old and disabled farm labourers. A childless couple had the farm built in 1858 and put in their will the following purpose for the farm:


    "The founding of a charity under the name of Sint Nicolaashoeve, to nurse old and disabled farm labourers living in the area of Nieuwveen. "


    After their deaths in 1868 their Will was enacted and the farm continued its function as farm labourers’ retirement home until 1903. After that time retired farm labourers were accommodated in other homes and the farm again became just a farm.


    In the book ‘...een liefdadig gesticht onder den naam van Sint Nicolaashoeve’ this is documented in detail. The book is available for € 9,95 by emailing info@sintnicolaashoeve.nl
