Tasting cheese

Katwoude is located on the IJsselmeerdijk between Monnickendam and Volendam. The rural setting with farms in the surrounding area is a quintessential example of the North Holland polder, where the famous Dutch cheeses originate from. Next to the dike is the characterful Jacobs Hoeve. Our staff welcomes you in traditional costumes and demonstrate how cheese is made. The cosy shop offers a wide range of Henri Willig cheese, souvenirs and typical Dutch fine foods. Admission is free.
