Who we are
We offer people with intellectual disabilities a pleasant and safe living and working environment.
An environment responsive to each person’s abilities, choices and independence. An environment that also offers peace, security and structure.
On the farm, clients live in an apartment in what is known as a 24-hour residential facility. Clients also live in apartments at the De Klompenhoeve residential project in Egmond aan den Hoef.
On the farm, these and other clients from the area work in goat farming, dairy making and horticulture. They make a wide range of delicious organic goat milk products such as cheese and cottage cheese and grow fruits and vegetables. Artisanal local produce, in a healthy and clean environment. In addition to this, the Klompenhoeve offers a wide range of craft, civic and creative activities.
History and Mission
Care farm De Klompenhoeve was started in 1976. This makes it one of the first care farms in the Netherlands.
Two things contributed significantly to the creation of the care farm:
1. The fact that in the 1970s the possibilities and individuality of people with intellectual disabilities became increasingly central. New forms of living and working were henceforth initiated in the midst of society rather than outside it.
2. The experience that clients flourished through farm visits and work vacations.
Contact with animals and the sheltered environment stimulated their development.
As care farm De Klompenhoeve, we want to offer clients meaningful agricultural and craft work and a pleasant, safe living environment. Such that they feel connected to society and can develop personally.

Farmhouse De Klompenhoeve
At residential farm De Klompenhoeve, 24-hour supervision is available. This residential facility consists of 2 farmhouses with apartments. The clients run their own households with the help of the supervisors. Each client has his or her own client supervisor. Together with the client, this person draws up a support plan that states what the client will be supported with and in what way. Clients with 24-hour supervision have a residential indication and fall within the A.W.B.Z. co-payment scheme.
Mossel Avenue residential project:
In the village of Egmond aan den Hoef, clients live in their own apartment where they live independently with support. Depending on indication and guidance needs, they receive support in their own homes. With their client supervisor, they create a support plan. In addition to direct counseling hours at home, clients can call on support center counselors. The support center is located in the same residential block as the clients’ apartments. Here they can come daily with their questions and problems or just for fun. A volunteer also gives computer lessons, for example.
