Beemster

HOLLAND

This farmer-owned cooperative was founded in 1901.With artisan, time-tested techniques, the master cheesmakers handcraft the richest, most flavorful cheese using methods dated back generations.  The curds are still hand stirred, and the brine can be traced back to the mother brine from the co-op's founding in 1901.  Small family farming, traditional craftsmanship and a dedication to sustainability come together to create premium Dutch cheeses.  Their commitment to the health and happiness of their cows, farmer and the planet are all part of what goes into creating the best cheese.  Workers are offered living wages, the land is protected, energy conserved, and the cows are treated like part of the family.
