    Jeanie's Zuivel icecream, Kolderveen 2 more images

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At this farm, in the tiny hamlet of Kolderveen, you find this dairy farm where they sell ice cream made from their own dairy cow milk. All-natural ice-cream.
    The brochure says: No opening hours, always open.
    The owner, Jeanie, runs her ice cream farm very simply. There are a few chairs and tables in the garden, and you go in and tell her what you want. She then takes out huge containers of the lovely cold sweet stuff and scoops very big helpings for you.
    While you sit under a tree in the shade and enjoy your ice cream, she goes back to folding the laundry :)

    Favorite Dish: I had 3 huge delicious scoops of rum/raisins, coffee and chocolate. All for only 4 euro. The dog had a scoop too. That was free :-)

    Many Dutch farms have thatched roofs. Which need to be renewed every so many years. It's an old skill that is becoming rare. While eating my icecream I watched the guy work on the roof. It was very hot. Amazing how simple and yet precise this job is. How much experience one must have or the roof will look like a lumpy pancake.

    Do see the 4 more photos in this tip, as they are close ups of the actual work.
