Kitchen Garden

Looking at old pictures of our estate, we discovered a kitchengarden surrounding the pond, right next to the ancient stone wall and in front of the farmhouse. In the spring of 2020, on that exact spot, we planted our new kitchengarden.

Having their own kitchengarden has always been a great wish of our Chefs, Thomas Diepersloot, Robert Poel and Ewout Eleveld. Since the kitchengarden is a reality, every day the Chefs, or one of the teammembers, are bussy gathering herbs, fruits and ingrediënts for their beautiful dishes or homemade lemonade, tea or for breakfast purposes.

Passionate about bees, this couple living in Doorn has a great love of nature and honeybees. They installed two apiaries on the grounds of the estate. These bees, called Buckfast, produce honey for our Voltaire kitchen.

You can also find a botanical garden, called the Londotuin, named after the founder mr Ger Londo. This garden is managed by a group of vollunteers of the foundation Dorp en Natuur Leersum-Amerongen.
