Simonhoeve Cheese Farm
Simonhoeve Cheese Farm has been a family business for several generations. The family had a farm with a large herd of sheep. For over 30 years, cheeses and clogs were made at this farm.
Nowadays, you can listen to the stories about how they make cheese with the milk of their own cows and how they make wooden shoes. You have the opportunity to do a tour, taste cheese, fruit wine and eat typical Dutch biscuits called ‘Stroopwafel’ and ‘Speculaas’, and it is completely free.
Besides that, it is possible to book a workshop: to learn traditional Dutch games, decorate and produce wooden shoes, make Dutch cheese, learn clog dancing, go on a bicycle treasure hunt and more!
