Belgium For Kids

Visit a Farm Around Brussels

Bees, Sheep, vegetables and pony rides

We are always on the look out for things to do around Brussels, Belgium for kids. Well, we found something for Sunday, September 15th 2013. I often take my toddler to the BCT play group at Imagine in Wezembeek-Oppem.

It turns out that right around the corner, behind the Persian carpet store is a small shop that sells produce from it's own farm in addition to some other organic products. They even have kale, a rare find in Belgium.

They also offer yummy quiches, salads (quinoa, lentiles) and soups you can take to go or eat on the spot. Our Darling Sprout basically emptied a whole bowl of broccoli soup and a part of the Parmesan and asparagus quiche.

And, here is my favorite part -- a small kids corner! another rare occurrence in Belgium for kids.  If you have been eating out with your little ones, you know how uncommon it is to find a changing table, much less a potty equipped toilet.  The small play area with toys, books and crayons next to our table was a real treat. 

The owner is super nice and helpful. She speaks excellent English, and it took her quite a while to start addressing me in french. I prefer using the local language so I spoke french and she responded in English :)

The shop is located only 500 meters from the farm Chaussée de Malines 71 in Wezembeek-Oppem - 1970.

Well I was happy to find out last Friday that they have a free Open day at their Farm. You can spend the day among sheep, vegetables and enjoy pony rides. A snacks will be offered throughout the day at all. I'm also looking forward to checking out their bee farm.
