Adam & Hannie Van Bergeijk
Dutch Gouda Artisanal Cheese
Mountainoak cheese products are made with milk from their own farm and they hold their practices to a high standard of animal care and respect.
Originally, Adam and Hannie were dairy farmers from the Netherlands. They became interested in cheese making after attending the cheesemaking school in Gouda. They immigrated to Canada, where they purchased their first farm in Wilmot Township in September, 1996. In the beginning, they had no plans to continue making cheese, instead choosing to focus on raising their herd.
Eventually, Adam and Hannie moved back towards making artisanal Dutch goudas. At first this was just for personal consumption, but as the popularity of their cheese grew, they decided to officially go into the cheese making biz!
On 325 hectares of land, they grow feed, care for and milk their own herd of over 400 dairy cows, and use the 11,000 litres of high quality milk produced yearly to turn into their delicious artisanal cheeses.
