Full matured farmer’s cheese
Full cheese with character and a delicious farmer’s taste. Striking piquant! The “Blaarkop” is an old Dutch cattle breed that has traditionally been found in the province of Groningen, Gelderse Vallei and Utrecht. These ladies are strong, sober and robust and can get along well on the Dutch landscape on the marshy grassland. They have a calm and affectionate character and characteristic black or brown blister shaped circles around the eyes. “Blaarkoppen” in addition to tender meat, also a rich milk with a good protein and fat content. The milk production is a lot lower than with Holstein cows, but the taste is special. You can taste this in the cheese! In the Netherlands, there are only about 30,000 “Blaarkoppen”. In the Gelderse valley, about 70 organic “blaarkoppen” on meadows located on the quiet and water catchment area De Binnenveldse Hooilanden. These ladies are fed grass all year round and stay outside as much as possible. They give the milk for the Bio Blaarkop cheese.
