Uccle/Ukkel Farm


At the heart of the rural Fond’Roy site remains a farm consisting of a long narrow single stretch of land alongside the main building, stables and barn. Unlike square farmhouses, it does not have a courtyard. It was constructed between 1810 and 1837. The farm has thankfully been preserved and is today managed by the non-profit association Tournesol-Zonnebloem vzw, which organises educational activities centred around donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs and other barnyard animals that live on the site. The farm also contains a large educational vegetable garden with areas devoted to crop rotation, berries, permaculture, etc. and manages an orchard planted with old varieties of apple, plum and pear trees as well as nearby meadows used as pasture for the animals. In the western part of the park, a path leads to marshland that can be observed from a grated walkway that extends as far as the source of the Geleytsbeek stream. The wooded sections of the park feature a number of remarkable trees, such as two giant sequoias, a false cypress and two tulip poplars.

Guided tours permitting access to certain interior parts of the farm. Saturday only at 13h00, 14h00, 15h00 and 16h00. In French only. Up to 20 people per tour.
