Visit the animals At Kinderboerderij Essesteijn

Kinderboerderij Essesteijn is a friendly place for visitors of all ages, and of course for real animal lovers. The cows, chickens, sheep, rabbits and guinea pigs that roam here are good company for children and parents. The presence of the historic farmhouse also gives the site a characteristic feel.

Essesteijn is run by a nice team of people with slight disabilities, who look after the site and the animals. That makes Kinderboerderij Essesteijn not just a pleasant place to visit but also a unique workplace.


Next to the farm, you will find Poldermolen de Vlieger. The miller will be delighted to tell you all about the mill.
