    The Spanjaardhof is one of the oldest farms in the area. It is also sometimes called "Hof te
    Steenberg", a name that some say refers to the quarries that were once quarried in the area. Others claim it is a reference to the Roman potsherds that were once found here. Later it was also called the court of Velasco , after the 16th-century Spanish nobleman, Don Diego Velasco, who moved in. The name Spanjaardhof also refers to this resident.The current closed farm with a rectangular courtyard dates from the 2nd half of the 18th century. This arable farm grows on the rich sandy loam soils, especially grains, sugar beets and potatoes.
