Woensdrecht Farmers Day

Woensdrecht Farmers Day

On the weekend of Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September last, the 13th edition of the Woensdrecht Farmers Day took place at the Reimerswaalweg in Woensdrecht.

On Saturday 7 September, more than 80 tractors started on the Reimerswaalweg to make a trip through the Municipality of Woensdrecht. This 4-hour trip had a stopover on the Ouwe Raedhuysplein in Hoogerheide.

On Sunday 8 September, 3,000 – 3,500 visitors visited the Farmers Day. Everything that has to do with farming life was on display. On the meadow were again numerous activities on the program and also the stands with artisan products were represented. With art of beeswax, old crafts and of course good food such as eel and a pig on a spit.

This year’s theme was “Experience the great outdoors, on the Farmers Day”. For the children there was plenty to experience, a ride on anĀ  pony, floating geese, keeping sheep, climbing on a straw pyramid, scrambling over the obstacle course or going around farming. In addition, the old, but also new, machines and tractors stood to be admired.

ICAReS was at this event with their mobile ground station on Sunday. Rudy Muller of RPAS-Remotely Piloted Aircraft System has flown 2x over the corn maze.
