Yellow gold. That’s what we call our Gouda cheese in this region. The world-famous, characteristic cheese in the shape of a wheel, weighing up to a magnificent 16 kilos. An oasis of calm and space, right among the four largest cities of the Netherlands. And today still, this very Dutch landscape of grazing cows, ditches and pollard willows is where cheese is made from milk of our own cows. From young cheese to fully mature cheese and herb cheese to truffle cheese. The flavour varies from farm to farm and even from season to season.
