It wasn't that long ago that we took over this Peter's Farm. We don't have a background in agriculture, but we wanted to become farmers. We were interested in husbandry in particular and were drawn to the animal-friendly farming system of Peter's Farm.

We visited several Peter's Farms before we started this adventure and were impressed by the freedom the calves have to wander around and play with toys, such as a hanging balls. 

The dream: continuing Peter's Farm full-time

We are, of course, beginners in the Peter's Farm world, but we are still given a lot of advice and help from the previous owner, other Peter's Farm veal farmers and the Peter's Farm district manager. Dennis currently still works at a pig farm at the moment, but we would like to extend our company in such a way that we can work with calves full-time. That is our dream.

  • Dennis and Joyce van der Valk
  • Based in Heeswijk-Dinther, Noord-Brabant
  • A Peter's Farm since 2015 (old owner already since 1997)
  • Interesting facts: The previous owners still give advice from the wings.
