Boerenkaas Farmhouse Gouda

Great gouda from pastured cows.

Job Baas, our Dutch cheese importer, calls this family's cheese the best aged gouda he's ever tasted. Unlike most factory-made versions, the Capetain family's cheese is a real farmhouse Gouda, or Boerenkaas, meaning all the milk comes from the family's own herd. By Dutch law the cheese can only be made when the cows are out in the pastures, roughly early April through late November. The diet of the animals is more varied, and the resulting cheese is more interesting in flavor.

Hearty and smooth with a delicate sweetness in the background, the Capetain family's Boerenkaas Gouda is impeccably balanced. It's always one of our top sellers. Both novices and seasoned experts prize its versatility. You will love this cheese.

The wheels we're currently offering are aged over one year, slightly longer than our usual stock. The trademark hint of butterscotch is intensified and as you nibble you'll crunch on little flavor crystals, the result of the extra age. The overall balance that this cheese is known for remains but with a deeper, rounder flavor.  This cheese, like most cheeses, tastes best when served at room temperature.
