The farm dates from the 19th century and is the oldest farm in the polder of Schiermonnikoog. In addition to the recreational part, De Oorsprong still has an active farm business. In 1972 a free stall barn was built where the cows are still milked every day. We milk approximately 95 cows with 2 milking robots every day. Feel free to come and take a look around the corner ...
Over the years, the farm has been continuously adapted to the requirements of today. It has been converted several times into what is now the modern recreation farm. You can still taste the nostalgia of the old stable in various places. The farm is located on one of the most beautiful spots of Schiermonnikoog. On the edge of a beautiful dune and salt marsh area on the quiet east side of the island.
