Who are we
« We can offer what supermarkets cannot offer you: TASTE »
3 farming families from Flemish Brabant
Baudouin, Luc, Tom and their sons Brecht and Tim are 3 farming families from Flemish Brabant who advocate sustainable and circular agriculture with a short chain. Together, they want to further develop short circuits in the region and offer the quality and freshness of their products to consumers curious to rediscover an authentic taste.
This collaboration of local producers gave life to « De Woudpoort », a neighborhood square in their image where nature, friendliness and authenticity reign.
Every Saturday, the square turns into a meeting place between consumers and producers. At the market, consumers can discuss the origin and know-how of producers by filling their baskets with fresh and seasonal products at a fair price. In this warm atmosphere, the farmers invite the children to come and meet the farm animals through various activities.
« De Woudpoort » is also an area of exceptional nature. As its name suggests, « De Woudpoort » is above all one of the 6 adjacent gates to the Sonian forest, a forest remarkable for its rich biodiversity and majestic trees.
