Hidden Meadow Farm


Johan van Achterberg
July 5, 1934 - March 14, 2012

Our family is sad to announce that Farmer Johan, our beloved husband, father and grandfather, lost his battle with brain cancer on March 14, 2012. He died peacefully at a local hospital, with his wife Barbara by his side.

"Farmer Barbara" continues caring for Johan's small flock of Barnevelder chickens, but only as pets.

Thank you for your patronage and friendship.

Barnevelder RoosterPRODUCTS

Farmer Johan spent more than three decades farming vegetables, eggs, turkeys, cattle, pigs and other agricultural products. Being born and raised in Holland, Farmer Johan was dedicated to raising true Dutch Barnevelder chickens. Since his death in March, 2012, his wife Barbara continues to care for the small flock, but no longer gets enough fertile eggs to sell. If you are interested in buying fertile Barnevelder eggs, you can contact Fossil Rock Farm, a farm in New York offering to ship fertile Barnevelder eggs from a line of chickens that comes from Farmer Johan's.


Having previously worked as factory plant engineer, Farmer Johan was constantly thinking of new and better ways to work his farm. He used to build and sell the following innovative items to fellow farmers:
