Orchard at Landgoed De Olmenhorst

History Landgoed De Olmenhorst

After the reclamation of the Haarlemmermeer, the Amsterdam merchant Stephanus de Clercq came to Lisserbroek. Here he bought the first land of De Olmenhorst and founded a farm there. De Clerq already started growing fruit at that time. The sixth generation now runs the 165-year-old family business. The orchard is now many football fields large, is included in the list of 'natural beauty' and is a bird paradise. There are about 50.000 apple trees and 10.000 pear trees! The estate is accessible from sunrise to sunset. The dog is even allowed to come along, but must remain on a leash.

Picking apples at De Olmenhorst

Did you know that you can adopt a tree from the orchard? As a tree owner you can be the first to come by to pick 'your' apples in the fall! The picking season starts in mid-September. When exactly depends on the breed and the weather. Didn't adopt your own tree? Then join the picking with a guide. There are also separate picking days for school classes and childcare. Grandfathers and grandmothers often give their grandchildren their own adoption tree as a gift. Picking yourself is a real tradition for families from all over the country!
