The Appelparade with Haarlem Foodies.

Around Haarlem, there is plenty of food events. But where can you taste, drink and discover new products? Let me introduce to you Landgroed de Olmenhorst. In the middle of Haarlemmermeer, between The Hague and Amsterdam, Landgroed de Olmenshorst is only 20 minutes from Haarlem. You will find 18 hectares of organic apple and pear orchards, as well as monumental buildings and studios. You can enjoy walking among the orchards, take part in self-picking, and you can visit the Estate Shop with beautiful organic products. But there’s more!


In the spring is the Appelparade at the Olmenhorst. This year is on 20 and 21 May. It is already the 5th time this parade is organized and hopefully with good weather, a success as a family outing. This event can be enjoyed by parents, grandmothers, grandfathers, children. Actually everyone!

There is plenty to do and see with the Appelparade. There are different workshops, there is music and stands with greenery, delicacies and beautiful things. The atmosphere is relaxed.

And there is more for all you foodies! Because you can also eat and drink in the Olmenhorst. At the Estate you can enjoy a high-tea or a healthy organic lunch. In the courtyard, you will find a small terrace and the Appelcafé. The store sells good products. It is THE tip for this spring. Do you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city? Then step into the oasis of peace.

I would also like to mention that the Olmenhorst stands for sustainability. They use energy sparingly in all possible ways and together with pioneers they are leaders in Haarlemmermeer. How fantastic is that? The Olmenhorst is really worth a visit!
