Beemster is a brand that represents a farmers' co-op in North Holland, comprised of dairy farmers that have been producing delicious milk and Dutch cheese for over a century. The quiet, canal lined pastures of North Holland is a place where cows have grazed freely for 400 years. Thanks to the minerals and nutrients in the low lying soil provided by the sea, the milk from this region is rich in texture and sweet in taste.
Using solely natural ingredients, Beemster's Master Cheese Makers employ traditional Dutch recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. All Beemster Cheese Makers start at the apprentice level, learning the historic, artisan techniques needed to make each wheel of Beemster the finest in its class. The result is a line of exceptionally smooth and creamy cheeses that have won gold medals in competitions all over the world.
