Marjia, Barend and Matthijs Van Lindenberg
By Farm & Food Care
This close knit family emigrated from Holland to a dairy farm in the Ottawa Valley two decades ago to fulfill a lifetime dream of farming in Canada.
Marja now works full time with her two sons Barend and Matthijs who always knew they were destined to farm, proudly following in the footsteps of their father who they lost to cancer last year. Marja enjoys travelling and playing with her grandchildren, while Barend spends his time with his young family or playing hockey.
Milking cows is a 24-7 commitment, but Matthijs still has time to spend with his growing family and to fit in a few rounds of golf when he can.
