Beemster Graskaas is a very special and seasonal cheese produced only in the summer season. This unique cheese is made only from the milk of the Beemster cows, which are fed on the young spring fodder. Milk, taken during this specific period, is the creamiest milk of the year, which accords the cheese a rich and creamy consistency along with a deep flavour. Beemster Graskaas is medium firm in texture with a green inedible rind. Produced in limited quantities, it is matured for one-month before being sold in the market. Beemster produces only 2000 wheels of Graskaas and 1000 of them are exported to other countries for sale.
