That type of farm is called a "kop-hals-romp boerderij" (Literally "head-neck-body farm). It has a high roofed two story house and a huge barn connected by a lower part where the milking is done.

I'm making this my desktop pic for the day.

mare, Thanks. The family of my maternal grandmother were farmers from Lith, Holland. They settled in Minnesota and have a barn complex that resembles this layout.

me:the sequel, glad you like it. Sorry to have missed you the other night. Maybe next time.
