Boerkok uses local products and tells a good story
Bring yourself, Eva will do the sameEva Flantua is 26 years old. She works at the family business Boerkok in Lelystad.
“I still remember how we used to drive along the Rietweg and my father calling it 'the shopping street of Eastern Flevoland'. There were a lot of farms and farm shops along the road where we bought the products for the restaurant.” Gerhard Flantua and his wife ran this restaurant together at the Lelystad airport. In 2016 they started a new company, Boerkok, an event location and dining facility in the green polders of Flevoland.

There’s no fixed menu, the farmer decides what is served.”
Weddings, gatherings, and other events
Burenboeren dinner and Boerkok’s Sunday brunch
Besides organizing gatherings, Boerkok offers several recurring events. “Every Saturday we have the Burenboeren dinner,” Eva says. “All the guests arrive at the same time in the evening and are served a four-course meal. During each course, we tell them something about Flevoland, the farmer, the products, what we prepared, or how it was prepared. On Sundays, we serve a Boeren brunch, a farmers’ brunch, where you can pull up a chair at any time. We also have harvest events with various activities and a small roadside stand. We like to cook outside on holidays such as Pentecost and Father’s Day. There’s always something happening on the farm.”
What Boerkok has to offer is a beautiful location with lots of personalized options. Or as Eva puts it: “Boerkok is in a central location in the Netherlands, so it’s easily accessible for groups. Its rural, green surroundings make you feel welcome. A place to come together, to taste, and hear stories about Flevoland. We make sure you have an enjoyable gathering with local food and drinks.”
