On Wednesday, April 27, Deputy Wiebe van der Ploeg officially opened Boer’n Business. He gave the go-ahead to eight farms from National Landscape Middag-Humsterland that offer varied and tailored packages to the business community.
Businesses and other interested parties can book an arrangement with Boer’n Business from Wednesday 27 April in the Hayema Heerd in Oldehove. The farmers of Boer’n Business enter the business market and show what entrepreneurship means for them. They do this by having the participants participate in the agricultural sector. Besides working on the farm, the conversations between farmers and the ‘students’ are also an important part of Boer’n Business. The province of Groningen subsidizes this project with a maximum amount of 48,000 euros. Deputy Wiebe van der Ploeg gave the starting shot for Boer’n Business on Wednesday.
The common thread
Red line from Boer’n Business is to give people a realistic picture of the agricultural sector and to let them participate. The program is primarily intended for managers, administrators, employees and supervisors. It does not matter whether a company has hundreds of employees or just ten. Companies can choose from three different standard packages. Curious about these arrangements? View this at www.boernbusiness . NL
In total eight farms participate in this project. The differences between these farms are large. For example, there is a small organic sheep dairy, but also a very modern and computer-controlled dairy farm and fruit growing company, which comes close to a mega hall.
