hundred red-and-white cows provide fresh milk for their delicious dairy products. Hard and soft cheeses, blue cheeses, French cheeses, fresh cheeses, herb cheeses... There are about 140 different varieties to choose from, and they sell them all in their own farm shop. A worthy mention goes out to their Blauwe Grevenbroecker, recipient of a Caseus Award in Lyon in 2009 as the ‘most original cheese’. 140 varieties and they are all sold in the farm shop. Do not skip the Blue Grevenbroecker, as it received a Caseus Award in 2009 in Lyon as “most original cheese”.
