Small farm ’t Haantje was built about 150 years ago. The last residents were small farmer Scheper and his wife and daughter. Small farmers cultivated a small piece of land and had some (small) cattle but were often not able to fully provide for their own livelihood. In addition, the small farmers worked as field workers or factory workers. Till 1964 the Scheper family lived here with 4 cows, 2 pigs, a little horse and 30 chickens.
The holiday home is close to the beautiful village of Ruinen.
