Fam. De Boer

On June 15, 2013, we immigrated to Ontario in Canada. It took us four years to get it all so far. In autumn 2009 we started with visa application. Thanks to Gwenda and Interfarms this went virtually without problems, but takes a long time to wait. It took three years in total for this was in order.

On May 1, 2013, we sold our dairy farm thanks to our broker Mr. Renkema, then we packed the moving containers and we left to Canada without buying something new. First we have rented a house in Walton and from there we started looking for a farm. In the meantime, we have worked with other farmers, especially to learn things. We have also spoken at that time with different banks and accountants and a choice out there which best suited us and our plans.

Summer and autumn was marked by searching for a farm in total we have about 10 companies. In January 2014, Cor and Bart came to us she had perhaps a nice farm in Brussels about 15 minutes from where we lived. A farm with 50 dairy cows and 198 acres of land. This is farm that we bought as well and on May 1, 2014, we again utilized our own cows exactly one year after we had milked the last one in the Netherlands.

All in all we are pleased that we have taken this step. We are happy and have followed our dream.

Greetings Annie, Cygnet, Sjoerd Jan and Klaas de Boer
