Due to Holland’s fertile soil and lush green pastures, our cows produce unusually rich milk. Additional cream is then added to the milk for an extra rich cheese we call Double Cream.
Double Cream has a mild flavor. It’s sliceable, melts beautifully, and is the ideal choice for making creamy cheese sauces. It also makes for delicious omlets, tortillas, and potatoes. Melt some on a hot piece of apple pie for a special dessert!
This new creation from Holland is unlike any other sheep milk cheese you have ever tasted before. The milk comes from a small farm where the sheep are treated like family. This cheese has been aged for one year, developing a stunning sweet and nutty flavor. Pairs well with a variety of fruit pates, as well as fruity, sweet wines both red and white.
Imagine a drizzle of honey added to pure goat milk for a cashew-like nutty sweetness. This slightly sweet, full of flavor, yet not strong or salty cheese leaves you wanting more. Easy to slice, grate, or cube, wonderful in salads or as a snack with fruit.
World Cheese Champion - 2016.
At the Madison, Wisconsin, USA World Cheese Competition, in the category called: Flavored Semi-soft (semi-hard) Goat’s Milk Cheese, our Honey Bee Goat® cheese received the second prize and scored 99.5 points out of a 100.
It is the quality of milk from the rich, green pastures of North Holland that gives this award winning cheese it's incredible flavor.
The land rises up from low-lying seas into the earth dispursing the ocean clay which is especially rich in mineral sediment into the surrounding fields. All of this makes the milk from this area noticeably sweeter and richer than any other Dutch milk.
