Beemster cheese is being cut fresh in more and more places outside the Beemster polder. At farmers with a vending machine or their own farm store. Throughout North Holland, there are as many as 15 Farm stores. To fully enjoy North Holland, its fresh breezes, long roads, ponds, dikes and vistas, a number of bicycle routes have been established. During these routes you will cycle past a number of atmospheric farm stores.
There you can immediately see with what dedication and commitment the farmers take care of their livestock. And see with your own eyes how clean and comfortable their barns are. And that the cows graze outside as much as possible. At least 180 days a year, 10 hours a day.
