Boerenbond & Landelijke Gilden

Boerenbond & Landelijke Gilden is the largest farmers organisation but also the biggest rural movement in Flanders.

Probably the best known part of it is Boerenbond, our farmers organisation, who’s aim is defending the interests of Flemish farmers, as well as providing consultancy and vocational training for them. With its 17.000 members, it‘s continuously working on an economically, socially and ecologically sustainable agriculture that has broad community support in Flanders.

More than 70.000 rural families are active in the 900 local branches of our rural movement ‘Landelijke Gilden’. They participate in building their local community, they enjoy culture and learn together, but also undertake action for a vibrant rural area both in Flanders, as well as in the Global South.
