Most probablythe best cheese of the world
Stompetoren cheese is made of milk from pasture-grazed cows. Our cows are grazing and resting in the pastures, which makes them ‘happier’ and ‘healthier’. The fresh grass results in a high quality milk with a lot of protein. Our farmers do receive a special price when the cows are at least 120 days a year and 6 hours a day out in the pasture.
“I do sell Stompetoren cheese because I know that the farmers are getting a fair price for the milk, which guarantees the well-being of the cows.” John Koks, Kaashuis Veldhoven
Stompetoren is made by the CONO cheesemakers in the North of Holland. This cheese factory is the greenest of the world. The cheese factory is a combination between a traditional proces and innovative techniques. The stirring of the curd is done by hand. Everything in the brand new factory is accommodated in a way to use as less energy as possible.
Our cheesemasters are experienced in monitoring the ripening proces. With over 35 years of experience they do know everything about the best conditions to ripe the cheeses. The ripening conditions at our ripening factory have been improved several times, until we have found the perfect combination between temperature and humidity. Our cheesemasters do control the taste development of the cheeses during the ripening by the use of special instruments. This guarantees our high and constant quality.
