Experience a unique experience
When hugging a cow you go back to your own base and you will communicate in a different way than you are used to.
The heart rate of a cow is lower than that of us humans. And because of the regular breathing of a cow you will be wonderfully rocked back and forth. All this makes for a wonderful relaxing activity for young and old.

Hugging cow. What do we do?
We will be dressed in farm clothes and boots for a walk (excursion) on the farm. We will cuddle the calves and then hand feed the little ones (the adolescents among the cows) kibble. Then you cuddle with the cows. The duration is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Start time between 9:30 AM and 2:00 PM, because the cows are milked at 4:00 PM. The cow cuddling can take place indoors or outdoors, depending on the season and weather conditions.
Are you with a group of 4 or more, you can determine an appointment and date yourself. Are you with less than 4 people and do you want to come by outside the cow hugging days? Then the basic price is 100 euros.
There are new dates regularly. Especially for individuals or groups smaller than 4 people.
During the cow hugging day you can start with a cup of coffee/tea and a nice piece of Frisian orange cake. Then it's time to put on the overalls and boots and go on a farm excursion. During this excursion you will end with hugging the cows.
At the end we close the whole thing with a drink. Look at ourevents for the available dates.
