In the province of Noord-Brabant (the Netherlands) there are few farmers left running their farm the old-fashioned way of a mixed farm; i.e. a few cows, pigs and chickens, some agriculture and a vegetable garden. Many of them quit because of their age and the lack of a successor. Those who can tell from own experience about this way of farming is part of a vanishing generation. They are the last witnesses of an era when farming was not a job but a way of life.
