Jerseyhoeve Jersey Cheese

Jerseyhoeve Organic 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. As a result, the different variants have the names of nature reserves on and around the island. 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.
