This small farm/café/garden is a favourite of ours, and although we only discovered it since we had our son, I’m convinced I would have made my way there eventually even without a child as an excuse! Pluk! is a social workplace, a ‘city farm’ with a café and a neighbouring plot where the produce is all grown.
The main attraction for many of us city folk is the farm and neighbouring garden. There is cosy café space inside and a terrace which is really incorporated into the farm, with the occasional chicken at your feet and maybe a donkey peering over your shoulder. Most small kids hang out in the sandpit with water feature which means they go home happy and really dirty.
As the Pluk! mission is to offer fresh (from the garden) and in-season food, the menu is brief. There is a daghap (daily special) which could be pasta, quiche, curry or a pizza from the outdoor stone oven. I’m a fan of the straightforward menu because it means I don’t have to deliberate my way through too much choice, but I know I’m going to get something vegetarian, organic and tasty anyway.
The Heemtuin garden next door is definitely worth a visit; it’s a short walk, a 20 minute circuit (with kid in tow) but covers all landscapes found in and around The Hague. You might need to bus or bike out to Pluk! but you get nature and organic goodness for your effort!
