Raw Milk Farmstead Cheese
elkbus signifies a series of farmstead raw milk cheese, also know as “Boerenkaas” in the Netherlands which are made on small family farms outside the city of Gouda, The Netherlands where Gouda cheese was founded. Historically, milk cans or “Melkbus” were used to transport the farms fresh milk to the creamery for cheese making. Each farm was assigned a number that was stamped atop the can and served as its identity. Today, we celebrate and pay homage to these traditions by resurrecting the stamped milk cans and proudly displaying a number on each Melkbus® cheese.
