This raw milk gouda is crafted on the Verweij family farm. Their closed herd of 450 holstein- friesian cows produce the creamiest milk — perfect for making true farmstead goudas! About 21 gallons of this fresh milk goes into making each wheel.
Lavender, another main ingredient, does more than add sweet floral notes to this cheese — it keeps local bumblebee colonies thriving! Carefully grown in France without the use of pesticides or herbicides help protect these insects and surrounding food crops. Adding thyme to the mix only heightens the herbaceous notes of this gouda, making it a favorite during spring and summer!
