People often have preconceived notions about veal farms; that they are grubby and the calves are kept separate from one another. Obviously they have never been to a
Peter’s Farm! In 2006, we hosted an open day. In retrospect, it was one of the highlights of our farming careers. ‘Ah, so that’s how it’s done’, was a common response. 

We invest a great deal of energy in caring for our calves. We do it to make sure the animals are healthy and happy. It is a question of giving them rest, space and freedom. And good feed. That produces top quality meat. We eat veal ourselves on special occasions. 

Keep it up with Peter’s Farm

We do not have our own fields, so we transport our manure to fields in the area using our own contracting business, which specialises in clearing ditches. The best compliment we could receive is that we should keep it up. That might not sound too euphoric, but consider this: coming from sensible Frisians, it can certainly be considered a gesture of appreciation.   

  • Roel and Elly Poelstra
  • Located in Ternaard, Frisia
  • Two children
  • A Peter's Farm since 1998
  • Interesting facts: Roel built the stalls himself so that the calves can see outside and get a breath of fresh air at the open doors.
