On some occasions the amount of visitors is above average. This is why we can’t guarentee that there is enough to pick for everyone.
Daily fresh eggs
Normaly it could, but because of the ongoing bird flu not this year.
In the garden you were able to pick your own organic eggs from the hen houses. Egg cartons are available inside the store, you are also allowed to bring your own. The chickens don’t just lay eggs. They scuttle around the garden fertilising the ground, eating slug eggs and clearing weeds.
There are several beehives around the garden we have three beekeepers active on our farm. You can frequently see them active during opening hours, caring for their beehives. The honey is sold in the store. Sprankenhof also has a care facility based around beekeeping.

National park de Loonse en Drunense Duinen is house to a herd of around 700 sheeps. From time to time a small group of those sheeps are kept in a field on our farm. During our season you have a chance to run into the shepherd and a hand full of his herd. Besides that we have some cows.
