City Farms

Mike and I first encountered a city farm or stadsboerderij, located on a green block between two busy streets, in Den Haag. Stadsboerderijen seem to be popular in the Netherlands. Families in particular love to visit these farms so the kids can interact with the animals. The animals are quite tame and seem to enjoy the attention from their visitors (especially if they bring food). You will see mainly sheep, goats, ducks, and chickens in these farms. Some farms are about the size of a small block and others are a bit larger. The photos below are from the stadsboerderij in Zwolle.
