What does the ‘Leerdammer free-grazing promise’ mean?
In short, it means we want the best for our cows. There’s no such official term for ‘free-range cheese’ but for us, free-grazing means that cows get to enjoy the great outdoors and graze on Dutch pastures for a minimum of 6 hours, for 120 days a year, from the spring to autumn. In winter, and at some other times, a stable is more comfortable for them. Find out more here about our free-grazing promise here.
