Farmers that work to preserve nature in the Netherlands

De Keizersrande

Investment

De Keizersrande is a modern biodynamic agricultural and dairy farm based on the concept ‘Farmers for Nature’.

In this concept the agricultural exploitation of the land fully services the natural values of the area.

Farmers for Nature strive for a closed-loop production cycle, in which, for example, the grain from the agriculture activities and the grasses of the meadows are used as feed for the livestock, which in turn fertilises the land. The open characteristic of the farm allows consumers to see where their food comes.

In addition, the farm plays an active role in water and landscape management in the IJsselland region, through which the IJssel river flows. It also provides innovative educational programmes about agriculture to children.
