GS 235254 1 Scans either
Was looking through a pile of analog photos and found these.
My mom took this first one when I was picking up the
dumptrailer for some work and she happened to be on the same
farm to take some pics for relatives in the Netherlands.
This shed is on a farm we bought in 2003. About a kilometer
from the homefarm and we keep some equipment in this shed.
It has poor lighting inside so I always use the tractor's
I have some digital pics taken around the same time, but
really like this one. It's our 7210 with 8-row 1780 planter.
Didn't have this angle in digital.
This was taken on the same day when the 8120 pic was taken.
I was feeding at the time. It's a 2003 John Deere 544H
I agree. I love digital, but also love the old " still "
pics too. And depending on the situation, you will never
beat the quality of a good black & white still camera!!
do you have any pics from your farm back in The Netherlands?
IT's always nice to look through a photoalbum and look back
on your friends and family, the places you have been and
things you have done. Don't really get the same experience
with digital pictures on the computer. Have printed a fair
number of digital pictures just for that.
I thought i had a nice overview photo of our farm in the
netherlands, but i'll have to scan it again. Got some more I
want to scan too.
It's nice to see a Quicke front loader and a Veenhuis
trailer which are typical Dutch pieces of Western Europe
equipment in combination with a beautiful Northern American
How long you are farming now in Canada FlyingDutchman
(Gerard) and and has it fulfilled yuor expectations which
you had when leaving Europe?
We have been in Canada for 9 years now. We moved on December
16, 1996. It has by far exceded our expectations. We never
expected to this big and grow this fast. When we built the
farm we didn't expect to expand as much as we have. Our
buildings are too close together, we'll manage though.
Quicke is by far the most popular loader in this area. Most
dealers would rather sell a quicke than than their own
brand. The Veenhuis we bought new in the Netherlands and
brought it with us when we moved, glad we did.

Did you buy an existing dairy farm, or build it?
We built everything on a location where there was nothing.
