About us

Thus began

Hans and Will have exchanged the citylife in West-Netherlands for the beautiful Groningen. The farm Hayema Heerd, amid the unique Middag-Humsterland, has become their home and workplace. They wanted to create a place where everyone feels at home. It should be pure, sparkling, cheerful and inspiring; a special place for meetings, accommodation and entertainment for guests both young and older.

No sooner said than done.
With the help and dedication of several people Hayema Heerd succeeded to be a center for special overnights, for great celebrations and inspirational meetings and trainings. Meanwhile, many guests of all origins, ages, from different countries has find their way out to our unique place in Groningen. Sleeping, dances, meetings and enjoy between the straw proved a godsend.

A major strength: the people of the Hayema Heerd do have it:  they dare to dream, they dare to play!
The people of the Hayema Heerd  show their warmth and pleasure. Don’t be surprised if you have a small look in the kitchen during a party; probably the staff is swinging and singing loudly along with the music. The bartender plays  his air guitar.
The preparation of the straw beds offers regularly hilarious situations; coffee break with straw in our hair happens often.

Guest experiences


Last weekend we have (10 former fellow students ) spent on the farm. We were welcomed with coffee and cake Groninger . Then quickly go to the neighbors to help with milking the cows, calves bringing , feeding, cleaning and so on. Very nice to see what all is involved in running a dairy farm . Then back to have a drink and enjoy a meal in the spacious living room . The underfloor heating makes it toasty warm , modern toilets and showers are great! Sleeping in the hayloft on hay bales is a unique experience . Very cozy and warm. The next morning we serve a delicious and very rich breakfast. Highly recommended to stay in this unique location with these hospitable people.
