Can you recall the elation you feel when you see the first daffodil of spring, piercing through the last remaining snow drifts? That's how our cows feel when they can finally leave the barns after winter and have the freedom to run and play. Best of all, they can enjoy their first meal of the Beemster Polder’s fresh and delicious grasses. We use their first spring milk to make this limited-edition cheese, and it’s the creamiest cheese of the year. We're pretty sure you can taste the happiness.

INGREDIENTS  Pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cheese culture, animal rennet, annatto (for color). Contains: Milk
