De Weitens

Ecological Farm, Terrace & Cabanas

Come relax at our family business De Weitens. You can stroll around here between the fruit trees and vegetable fields, feed our chickens, look for all the insects that the garden is rich or come and spend the night between the walnut trees!

Jack will be happy to show you around and tell you everything about ecological gardening, the sustainable and CO2 neutral set-up and at Wilma’s terras you can enjoy homemade cakes with a cup of coffee or a pot of fresh herbal tea on the terrace, but also various Burgundian lunch dishes. She is also happy to make you a fried egg from our own chickens!

You can also stay with us in one of our luxurious cabanas at this beautiful location, on the walnut orchard. You can choose from different packages, a nice breakfast with local products, BBQ package or relax in the hot tub? Corinne gives you a warm welcome and looks forward to providing you with a fantastic stay.

We are very happy to meet each other at the Weitens, it is a good place to be for young and old!

Our story

Our story

De Weitens consists of 3 parts. The ecological market garden is led by Jack, Wilma's terrace is clear and the cabanas are run by Corinne. Our story starts with Cor Verouden and Dientje Verouden-Mikkers. In 1957 they took over the farm from Jack Mikkers. Son Jack decided early on that he did not want to take over the farm and went to study in Utrecht. Jack traveled a lot for his work and Wilma wanted something to do. Wilma loves being in the kitchen, baking fresh cakes and making dishes with fresh ingredients. That is why she opened Wilma's terrace in 2014 in the ornamental garden of Jack and Wilma's home with the intention of merging the terrace with Jack's great hobby, an ecological farm, after Jack's retirement.
