Enjoy the delicious flavours of real farmhouse cheese

Dutch Farmhouse Cheese - Light
The Dutch cheeses come in a variety of different shapes, colours and of course different tastes. This means you can choose any kind of cheese you like. Some people say they don’t like cheese, but given the amount of different flavours, this is almost impossible. In any case, it is nice to explore the various options. You can go to the supermarket and buy some regular cheese, but you can also try and find some farmhouse cheese. This type of cheese is made by the Dutch farmers on their own farm. This means the cheese is homemade, or put in more fitting terms, it is farm-made. Traditionally, it is the farmer’s wife who makes the cheese.

She uses her own ideas and recipes to create a one-of-kind type of cheese. It also depends on the soil and the grass and the way the milk is transformed into cheese. Each farmhouse cheese is therefore unique. In the Netherlands there are still around 3000 farms left where farmer’s cheese or Dutch Farmhouse cheese is made. This means you can choose from a large variety of exclusive cheeses.
