During high season we organize a pizza day every Tuesday. Every week this is a great joy for children as well as adults.
The program of this day is as follows :
At 10.30 a.m. the children (and the adults that want to participate) are resembling in front of the big barn where the farm cart is ready for departure. On the journey out to the woods all the children take place in the big farm cart. In the woods everybody is gathering dead wood. Some dads are sawing the branches that are too big to carry. At noon the group returns with the farm cart full of wood. The branches are collected according to their thickness and carried to our old original bread oven.
In the mean time our firemen have already started a fire and they have to work quite some hours in order to reach the right temperature to bake the bread and pizzas. At 4.00 p.m. the children come back with a pan or a bowl to make the dough for their bread. Every week it is a pleasure to see the enthusiasm and the fantasy with which the children make their bread.
In the bar all the ingredients are set out; at the end of the table a number is placed on the pizza and it does not take long before the first pizzas are coming out of our oven and the numbers of the ready baked pizzas are being called off.
All the breads are put in the oven and come out again at about 6.00 p.m. At that time everybody that has booked for a pizza is coming to the terrace to make the base for their pizza.
For the children we organise in July and August many different activities. Last year for example we organised a color match and the winners got the opportunity to repaint their drawing on the side of the farm cart in which we collect the wood for the pizza day. Almost every day we organise fiddling hours, chase of phantom, fox hunt, living “Stratego” , 4 days of swimming, etc.
In July and August we organise music evenings on the Saturdays.
