Leyden is a traditional Dutch cheese. Inspired centuries ago by the exotic spice trade, it’s made with cumin that imparts a fragrant aroma and zesty flavor. It’s mild with a buttery, semi-soft texture, and like all Beemster cheese, is made from the rich, creamy, sweet milk produced by our free-ranging cows.
