This picture has been taken during a bike trip, I saw the Shepherdess with sheep, a wonderful attraction for children and visitors.
These women gives very gladly information about the sheep, this is no commercial happen, alone for tourism and school visitors.

The Drongengoed, an oasis of greenery and calm, a discovery that is worth ...
It is with its 750ha Drongengoed the largest contiguous forest of area. It is located in the Meetjesland in the territory of Knesselare and Maldegem. Mixed woodland and heathland plants live together in harmony. The forest is well known for the many species of mushrooms that grow there and the presence of various birds.
Drongengoed; It gets its name from the Fathers of Drongen (= district of Ghent), which since the 13th century helped cultivate the area. These priests had Drongengoed Farm as them base. This beautiful farmhouse is located in the forest and is a tourist attraction. In the 18th century they started to reforest the moorland which resulted in the current Drongengoed.
Because there is so much to discover in the forest we organize, starting out from the Drongengoed Farm, a 15 or so hikes guided by an experienced nature guide,you the ropes in the fauna, flora, the origin of the forest.
A real discovery for young and old about 2 hours.
These walks can be combined with a delicious meal, hot soup or a piece of cake with coffee or a cold local beer, accompanied by a specialty Meetjesland in the Drongengoed farm our friend Kurt.

I hope you like it.
