Formaggio Kitchen Exclusive

Country of Origin: The Netherlands

Type of Milk: Cow
Flavor Profile: Medium

Wilde Weidekaas is a true Boerenkaas (literally farmer's cheese) of exceptional quality that has specific regulations applied to its production. We have worked for a number of years to find a producer of this quality gouda and we were lucky enough to find Lidia and Theo van Leeuwen and their 35 cows who produce this cheese on their farm in the West of Holland (between the cities of The Hague, Leiden and Zoetermeer.

The farm is 4 centuries old and is built on a dike, behind it is the “polder” (dry pumped land) where their cows graze (currently 4 meters below sea level).

The cheese is made fresh everyday from that day’s milking which helps the cheese preserve more of the natural flavors and smells of the milk. Lidia and Theo choose to salt their cheese minimally, resulting in the cheese ripening more slowly which allows the cheese to develop more pronounced flavors.

The cheese has a creamy texture and an approachable yet complex flavor of fruit, milk, nuts and flowers.
