Origin of name
About the name De Bonte Koe
It is derived from the red and white cows that grazed the meadows of Schiedam - Kethel.
The cradle of Kees Klein, one of the founders of De Bonte Koe, was in a house next to his uncles' farm on the Polderweg. In his youth, he spent a lot of time there. His uncles' cows were fattened up in a short time by feeding them swill, a calorie- and protein-rich residual product from the Schiedam gin industry, and were the pride of the family.
