De Stegge, the Farm


Permaculture & sustainability

The farm ‘De Stegge’ is located in the rural hamlet of Kotten just outside Winterswijk in the Netherlands. Situated on two hectares of rich and biodiverse land the farm consists of a small forest, meadows, orchard, wetland and an organic vegetable garden. There are many secluded spots to withdraw, sit, relax and connect with nature. The extensive vegetable and herb gardens, forest, apple and pear orchard and chickens provide a year-round bounty of organic food, building and medicinal supplies.

Aarde-Werk de Stegge generates energy with solar panels, uses biomass heat and filters the waste water for reuse. The residents and guests enjoy the healthy and tasty fruit and vegetables from the vegetable garden. Compost is made from garden and kitchen waste.

Apart from the people who live and work on the farm (6), we receive a lot of people who want to taste the 'Stegge-life' themselves for a shorter period. Our campfire-site is a very popular meeting point and 'farmtours' are appreciated.
