Happy Mrs. Jersey

Happy Mrs. Jersey is an organic cheese made from 100% jersey milk. The cheese is made from milk from 80 Jersey cows on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee. The cheese is pasteurized and has a weight of 8 kg.

Jersey milk has a different composition of fat and protein than milk from a Holsteiner cow. The percentage of fat (5.9%) protein content (4.2%)  is higher, making the cheese even creamier and fuller in taste. Jersey milk is also naturally richer in vitamins and minerals (2 times as much), carotene, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than milk from Holsteiner cows. This results in a particularly rich cheese with a distinctive taste.

Jersey cows are scarce and are only kept in a few places. In addition, the Jersey cow is a strong breed that handles its nutrition efficiently. For example, they use less feed for the same amount of milk. This makes the Jersey cow very suitable for organic farming. However, the cow is a lot smaller and gives less milk.

Biostee Organic Cheese

Biostee is a 100% organic cheese, made from the most creamy cow’s milk.

Biostee is an organic agriculture and vegetable growing company in the Hoeksche Waard. This company is run by 3 farmers.

In Strijen, a town next to Zuid-Beijerland, 200 milk cows are grazing. These are taking care of by farmer Marius de Vlieger. These cows feast on the resting crops of the Biostee. As a thank you, they give delicious milk and manure full of nutrients in return. The result is happy cows, delicious cheese from their milk, vegetables that grow well and farmers with a big smile. So the circle is complete!

Twisca Sheep Cheese

Twisca is a delicious tasteful North-Holland sheep’s cheese, rich in vitamins. This cheese owes its full, creamy taste to its high form (which is very beneficial for maturing) but above all to the North-Holland meadow’s where the milk sheep can graze to the fullest.

The milk for Twisca comes from nico Verduin’s sheep farm called “westfriesedijk”. He has about 700 Frisian milk sheep, which give an average of 450 liters of milk per year. In the Netherlands there are only 7000 of these sheep in total. His sheep graze on 70 hectares of land. This large nature reserve has always been influenced by salty, wetland. This makes the grass richer in composition and the milk much tastier! The feed for the animals is self-grown, so they can guarantee the quality. An extra effort they like to make to guarantee their vision for animal welfare and health!

Nico Verduin’s company is unique because lambs are born all year round (every month). The advantage of this is that he can deliver the best milk all year round and you can taste that in this delicious sheep’s cheese.
