The "Hagedoornse Plaatse" is a farm in Epe in the country, built in 1715 and is still maintained as it looked like in 1940. Since 2004 is opened as a museum and there are some small exhibitions in a special building next to the farm.
In this part of the country reed was used in the past to cover roofs and is still used for some farmhouses now.
Inside the farm you had a look how they lived, with a stove on which they also did the cooking.
They slept in a cupboard bed with closed doors and next to the stable with cows, which kept them warm in winter.
When the farmers' daughters became to old to sleep with their brothers in a cupboard bed, they got their own room.
I loved the huge linen cupboard, in the big drawers below they kept their clothes.
The bonnet is part of the regional costume.
When the farmer and his wife were too old to do the work, they lived in their own part of the farm until their death cared by their children who had taken over the farm.
The farm had their own vegetable garden which was kept by the farmers' wife.
In the exposition building was an exhibition about traditional underwear.
It was an interesting look in the past and we were said goodbye by this sheep.
