The Caetshage urban farm was created in the EVA-Lanxmeer ecological residential/business district. The municipality provided the ground, enabling this beautiful project to be developed without further subsidies. The farm was built mostly in a water-collection area, on which only non-polluting activities, such as this biological urban farm, were possible.

The urban farm is a so-called care farm and ‘forgotten vegetables’ are cultivated, vegetables are sold and there is a tearoom. There are also educational activities for children.
