Last month, the Circular Farming Platform organised the event ‘Together towards circular farming: collectively transforming the agricultural science paradigm’. WUR student/farmer Anouk van Bakel, from the family farm Vrebamelkvee B.V. talked about the measures that Vrebamelkvee is taking to become more sustainable. She also addressed the challenges that the farm encounters to shift from linear to circular farming.

Event organized by Stichting Boerengroep
With great enthusiasm, Anouk has invited us to come and have a look at the farm which happens to be the largest dairy farm of the Netherlands. On the 15th of June we will be given a guided tour around the farm led personally by her. For those of you trying to grasp the concept of circularity, this is your chance to see how innovative farming in the Netherlands looks like and to see how a big milking carrousel works.

We do ask for an excursion fee of 7 euros to cover your travel costs to the farm and back, but this is nothing in comparison to the value of such an inside look at the farm. Friends, colleagues and famers are all welcome so feel free to invite anyone who might enjoy this excursion!

Time schedule:
13.00 – We gather in front of RADIX and leave Wageningen by car
14:00 – Arrival at farm with small presentation and start of farm tour
17:00 – Leave the farm to return to Wageningen
18:00 – Estimated time to be back in Wageningen
