Farm is a personal work which explores Betsie's memories of the family's ancestral home in the south-west of the Netherlands. Prompted by the imminent demolition of the original farmhouse, she went back to photograph it and document the changing nature of the farm.Many farms have become unprofitable within the changing economies of Europe and, more specifically, the way in which land use has been reconstituted in the Netherlands. What has happened to the house symbolises many of the wider processes that are happening to farming families in the area.
