:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN:

On 2 november 2024 I, Joyce ( @HealingSteps ) will host a meeting :cow: Cow Cuddling :cow:

This meetup is more an experience then just a meetup :cow:

Do you love cuddling? And do you love cows? Then you should come & cuddle the cows with me :cow: :smiley: :cow:

What will we do:

  • At 11.45 we will meet at “the Witte Gravin”, a farm in Alphen aan den Rijn
  • At 12 we will go inside, and have lunch, there will be bread & toppings for on the bread
  • We will sign the cards & books after lunch
  • Then we will get explanation, the do’s en dont’s about the cow cuddling
  • We will change ourselves in overall and boots (they are there for us)
  • We will cuddle (or just touch if you would like that better) the cows
  • Cleaning the boots & getting out of the overalls
  • And then we will have closure of this day by talking a little about our experiences with something to drink and a little piece of cheese they make at the farm themselves.

Public Transport:
The farm is not reachable by public transport. There is a trainstation in Bodegraven, if you would not mind to arrive a little earlier, I can arrange to pick you up at the station, and bring you back to the station when we are done.

Parking:
if you come by car, when you reach the farm and drive between the house & cow shed, you can park at the left side behind the shed (there are parking plates at the wall so you will know where to park)

Costs:
Cow cuddling: €65,-
Lunch: € 12,50
Meetup Card: € 0,50 cents each.

All paid in advance via bankrequest/tikkie: one for the cuddling, and one for the lunch & cards.

Meetup Card:
will be placed in the whatsapp group I will create for this meeting.

What’s more:
Nice to know is that there is a little shed where they sell fresh milk, their own made cheese, eggs, (frozen) meat from farm in the neighbourhood, and more.

A maximum of 10 people can join this meeting, to be assured everyone gets a real experience:

  1. HealingSteps - Joyce
