Sponsored post. I received Beemster Cheese to facilitate my review.
In our house we love all things dairy, especially cheese. My husband introduced me to gouda cheese years ago and it has become a favorite snack of ours. We eat it all on it’s own, melted over steak, on burgers or shred it over a hot bowl of clam chowder soup.
We were recently introduced to Beemster Premium Dutch Cheese and they have an entire line of rich Gouda cheese including flavors like Mustard, Red Pepper and Wasabi.
Beemster Premium Dutch Cheese is a traditional Gouda from Holland, but unlike any other Gouda you’ve tasted. Beemster is made by a cooperative of small family farmers and master cheesemakers, founded in 1901. Beemster cheeses are rich and flavorful and available in a range of ages, as well as with flavors mixed into them.
Beemster is a founding partner of Caring Dairy, introduced in 2008 as a program to audit farming practices and ensure that Beemster is working in a sustainable way that integrates animal welfare, farmer welfare, land preservation, energy, and climate.
The tenets of Caring Dairy are:
- Happy cows: active, conscientious care for cows to ensure their health and welfare.
- Happy farmers: fair living wages and education to establish economically sound farms.
- Happy Planet: control the impact that farming has on land and climate, conserving use of energy and making the supply chain sustainable from cow to cheese.
Beemster promises that our delicious cheeses come from cows raised humanely, without artificial growth hormones and with free range access to pesticide-free pastures, clean air and fresh water.
Beemster sent us a package to try out their Gouda cheese for ourselves including this adorable little Beemster stuffed cow. We all gave Beemster Gouda cheese a try together and all four of us liked it. I kinda wish the girls hadn’t 🙂 but I guess I’ll have to share it.
Beemster Cheese is award winning and has won some of the most prestigious international cheese contests.
We love cheese in our house and will pair it with just about any dish. Beemster has lots of great recipes to try that include their rich Gouda cheese. Their recipe for Beemster Smoked & Portobello Burgers with Caramelized Onions looks devine and we’re going to give it a try this week.
Earlier this week we tried our Beemster Gouda Cheese over our steak and it was amazing. We just shaved a few small bits after getting the steak off the grill and it melted over it and goodness was it delicious!
Beemster Gouda Cheese is rich and delicious and I love that the Beemster cows aren’t pumped with growth hormones and are antibiotic-free so I can eat it and feed it to my family with the confidence of knowing its a healthy snack or addition to a meal.
