Due to production problems at farmer Jaap, this cheese is unfortunately not available (until about October). We advise you to temporarily choose Boeren Jumbo!
Boer Jaap is an absolute Winner! Every week a lot of regular customers come to our markets for a piece of Boer Jaap. Dit you know such a ‘piece’ sometimes weighs two kilograms?! The Dutch do love cheese…
Farmer Jaap has its farmhouse located in the Krimpenerwaard area. This is right in de middle of the Groene Hart (green heart) area of The Netherlands. The meadows in this area are far below sea level and therefor have a very humid soil. This ensures a constant supply of fresh grass for the herds which results in the best conditions for farmers cheese in the Netherlands.
A whole Boer Jaap weighs around 30 kilograms. This means that one Boer Jaap Cheese contains roughly 300 litres of milk! Due to its bigger size this chees ripens much slower but easily keeps its moisture inside. This results in a strong flavoured yet super creamy cheese!
