Overview
More
The Clara Maria Cheese Farm and Clog Factory is set in the pastoral polder landscape just southwest of Amsterdam. This historic 160-year old farm creates an inviting atmosphere for visitors to step back into old-world charm. The original barn has been charmingly transformed into the wooden shoe factory and the cheese making room, with a spacious, nostalgic gift shop that has a large variety of Dutch souvenirs. Visitors are welcome to drop in for a tour and to taste a variety of our delicious, freshly made cheese.

Came here as an optional extra with our tour group. The demonstration of how clogs were made was fascinating. Interesting also to see how cheese is made but even better to sample the final product. Try all of them & you won’t be disappointed.

The farm itself is a shame to agriculture: there is rubbish laying everywhere around, the cows macerate in their own poo, the grounds are badly kept, ... You enter into a small room with not much to see before ending up into the typical but...More
