"Zelfpluk" in Olmenhorst, the organic apple-pear-garden next to Lisse


In the months September and October the organic fruit farm Olmenhorst opens its door four times a week to all apple- and pear-lovers. Elstar, Santana, Jonagold or Jonagored: its time for "zelfpluk" (collecting the fruits on your own, directly from the tree)! In the huge property at the border of the village Lisserboek one may test and buy also fresh pressed apple juice, have a stroll between the trees, enjoy an "appeltaartje" in the sun, visit the local cheese-farm or do some shopping at the biological supermarket....
A lot of beautiful butterflies like the farm  too...Some even posed kindly for a picture:-)

Really nice pictures of apple trees, apples and the ambiance. My English teacher always said:"An apple a day keeps the doctor away...". So let`s eat them.
