Aeres Farms (formerly the Aeres Practice Centre) Dronten is the training and learning environment provided for and by students in the agricultural and food sectors. Both Aeres Hogeschool Dronten and Aeres VMBO (formerly Groenhorst) value practical learning in the education programme very highly. They make intensive use of the future-oriented education facilities at Aeres Farms.
Aeres Farms has an agricultural company and student companies. The former CVDB and the Paardenplaats have merged into Aeres student companies. Aeres Farm’s agricultural company covers 340 hectares and consists of a crop farm and three different dairy farms. The first farm focuses on cattle feed and research (Flevolandstal), the second on automation (Flevolandstal) and the third on pasturing (Weidestal).
