That Dutchman's Farm, 112 Brown Road, Upper Economy Nova Scotia

Phone: 902.647.2751



That Dutchman's Farm, producers of fine farmstead cheeses, is owned and operated by Maja and Willem van den Hoek. The cheese Willem produces is a "Farmstead Gouda." It is a true heritage cheese that has its roots in the Netherlands, reaching down into the early middle ages.

Over the years they have laid out an extensive network of walking trials and waterways connecting gardens and ponds. Hidden amongst this lives an interesting collection of animals and plants tucked away in special settings. It is a work in progress and well worth the visit to explore. Something for the very young (animals to visit) and the very old (park benches everywhere!) You can wander the farm yard and barns, explore the nature trails, meander through the flowers, herb and water gardens, meet the heritage and exotic animals and stop for lunch between Father's Day and Labour Day at their cafe which provides a spectacular view of the Cobequid Shores of the Bay of Fundy. It's the perfect setting to enjoy nature and take some time out. Admission charged.
