The story of the famous
ripening facility in Reeuwijk
The picturesque village of Reeuwijk in the province of South Holland is home to a very special family of real cheese lovers. This family has been making cheese since the 17th century. Back in 1934, the family still haggled over the price of their cheeses at the market in Gouda, and later plied their wares door-to-door. Today, this family firm has blossomed into one of the leading cheese maturers and sellers in the Netherlands. And that’s what makes it so special – along with the taste of the cheese, of course!
Meet the Vergeer family. All the family members live within a stone’s throw of each other in the village; it’s the kind of place where children still play outside all day, so don’t be surprised if you see the son of boss Vergeer racing around town on his old bike.
Family Vergeer makes ordinary cheese special again.
