June Event International café

Invitation for June event –  Saturday, June 1, 2019

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear international students,

We would like to invite you to our last event for this season. On Saturday June 1 we will visit a Dutch dairy farm in the tiny village of Lellens.

To get to Lellens we will go to the NS station in Groningen, and take bus 6 at 15.21 from platform J going in direction Delfzijl via UMCG to Ten Boer. We will exit the bus in Ten Post (Eestumerweg), and then go to Lellens. Hans van Seventer will meet you at platform J at 15.10 and travel with you in the bus. The bus trip takes 34 minutes. Cars will be waiting in Ten Post to take you to the farm of the Kooistra family. Be sure to be on time or you will miss the bus! (If you need to call Hans you can reach him on the number that’s in the confirmation e-mail you receive after signing-up).

In a very casual agrarian setting farmer Henk Kooistra will give a short tour and introduce you personally to the cows. You may even get to sit on a tractor! We will serve a curry dinner, also for vegetarians. We will conclude the visit at around 19.30 so everyone can go home and watch the soccer finals on TV.


The location of this event will be the farm of the Kooistra family, at Borgweg 15, 9794PA Lellens.


15.10 19.30 — Come to Groningen station on time; don’t miss the bus!
