About us

The Heyde Hoeve farm is situated in the village of Gerwen, in the municipality of Nuenen. The village is located in the ‘Meierij of ‘s-Hertogenbosch’. The farm is located on farmland which used to belong to the Priory of Hooidonk.


This was a convent of the regular canons of Augustine, near the Nederwetten neighbourhood of Hooidonk. The convent existed from 1146 till 1648. The farm dates back to 1553 and has a long history with a variety of residents. The map of 1836 shows that the surroundings of Heihoef (later on it became Heyde Hoeve) looked very different.


Vincent van Gogh almost certainly roamed around the fields of the Heyde Hoeve. This world-famous painter lived and worked in Nuenen in the period 1883 till 1885. Did he find inspiration for his farm life paintings here? If you take a walk in the surrounding countryside, you still feel the atmosphere of that time! Since 1955 the farm has been owned by the family Schepers. In the old farm they kept cows and pigs. Mien and Karel had five children. Their son Tiny took over his parents’ company and he specialized in the pigs. He is the current owner of the renovated old stables and the farm: the inspiration for the Heihoef cooperative. A cooperative of pig farmers with care and attention for the animals, and with preserving the natural environment.
