4 out of 5 stars (2 reviews)

Description

Henri Willig Cheese. Traditionally produced cheese from our own dairy for over 40 years!  

Henri Willig was born and raised in Katwoude. In 1974 Henri and his wife Riet took over the farm business from his parents and learned how to make cheese. Henri has been producing high quality, traditionally prepared cheese on a daily basis for the last 40 years and his passion for creating such superb cheese has won him several competition prizes in places such as London, Nantwich and Wisconsin. Henri Willig cheeses therefore enjoy worldwide recognition!  

Itinerary

Experience the famous Dutch cheeses during the Cheese Tasting by Henri Willig. You will learn all about how those delicious Henri Willig cheeses are being made, why the Dutch are so into this dairy product and you get to taste 5 different types yourself.
