My name is Loes Dijkhuis-Alferink and I am co-owner of Koe in de Kost, which are 6 holiday houses (earth houses) on a real farm. Graduated in fashion design and psychology, but got back to my roots: a farm in a local village. I love nature and would like to give everyone the possibility to enjoy a unique farm experience.
