2017 Biesland Food Fest

Today we attended the 2017 Food Fest held at Hoeve Biesland, on the border between Delft and The Hague.

It was a beautiful, sunny spring day and really nice to meet up with friends and hang out for a couple of hours.  Queues were long to get food, and it wasn’t cheap, but was mostly organic and totally delicious.  The kids had a lovely time playing and enjoyed meeting the local farm residents (and so did I).

This is the same location I have made a video about before: Weiland Winkel and where we enjoyed the spring Cow Dance.  They also have another festival in September each year called the Biesland Dagen.

Though I will always miss Australia, this area I have ended up living is really lovely.  We’re only about a 15 minute drive to the very centre of The Hague, and even less into the centre of Delft.  Yet, even so close to these cities, we still are surrounded by beautiful countryside.  It’s made extra special with lovely festivals like this.
