Zaanse Schans - Cheese farm Catharina Hoeve

At the farm you will attend a professional demonstration of cheese-making. At Zaanse Schans, cheese making is an old Dutch guild, just like woodworking, wooden shoe making, pewter casting and distilling liqueur. You can attend a cheese-making demonstration at the Catharina Hoeve, where our staff – in traditional Dutch costumes – will inform you on Henri Willig cheese: from Gouda to goat and herb cheeses. Admission is free.

We recommend that tour operators book their coach visits in advance, but they are very welcome without an appointment as well. Private visitors do not have to make a reservation and can learn everything about Henri Willig and his passion for quality cheeses.
