July Cheese of the Month: Beemster Graskaas

Type of Milk: Cow’s Milk

Variety: Gouda

Country of Origin: Netherlands

Notes: Uniquely deep, with rich and creamy texture

Every spring the Beemster cows rush through the barn doors and excitedly graze on the fresh spring pastures. It’s worth searching for the YouTube video to see how animated the cows are. The cows run and jump with excitement after being released to these untouched pastures. It is only the first milkings from these fresh pastures that are used to make the coveted Beemster Graskaas®.

This rare cheese, known for being the creamiest of the year, is aged for one month. The flavors are uniquely deep yet the texture remains very rich and creamy. It’s arrived only days ago from Holland and now ready to be paired with a light, fruity red wine and enjoyed by all.
