EXTENSIVE VISIT TO THE STUD FARM

One of our farm employees will give you a warm welcome at Diepensteyn Stud Farm . During the professional tour you will be informed about the origin, history and development of the Belgian draught horse breed. Their use also evolved! Due to the industrialisation the draught horse lost its economic meaning; PALM Belgian Craft Brewers made sure it got a different, recreational role.
