Our modern dairy facility is the greenest in the world, but we still make our cheese by hand, using time-honored techniques.
At Beemster, we make every wheel of cheese by hand, but you might be surprised to know that it’s done at the world’s greenest dairy. In 2014, we opened a hypermodern dairy facility that was named the most sustainable building in the Netherlands. While this was a great honor, we’re even more proud of the fact that we continue to make our cheese by hand, using recipes and methods that have been tested and perfected over generations by our master cheesemakers.
A magnificent moment: Our new cheese dairy ‘De Tijd’ was officially opened last Thursday by our Queen Maxima. This fills CONO, royal warrant holder and maker of Beemster Cheese, with great pride. Our hypermodern cheese-making facility has already been nominated the most sustainable building in the Netherlands. But rest assured: we’ll continue to produce Beemster cheese in our unique, time-honoured way, with emphasis on tradition and master craftmanship. Made possible also by happy cows, happy farmers and the world’s greenest cheese dairy.
