De Graaf cheese farm
The De Graaf family runs their cheese farm on the Buitenkerk in Bodegraven with great fun and passion since 1928. Currently the third and fourth generation are working on the farm. Since 1995 Irma and Gerrit are the proud owners and their son Adriaan wil take over in the future. On the farm around 100 cows are milked twice a day. In summer the cows graze on the lush meadows and in winter they stay indoors in their new and sustainable barn. Enter the farm shop via the porch where the farm vending machine has recently been set up, and it’s like stepping back in time. In the authentic shop only genuine farmers cheese is sold. It’s made by Gerrit and Irma using the milk from their own cows.
