Ruyge Weyde is a Dutch Boerenkaas (meaning farmhouse) gouda made just east of the town of Gouda in Southern Holland. Produced by brothers, René and Sander von Vilet who are the fifth generation of their family to make the cheese, proudly follow a very traditional style of Dutch cheesemaking. Ruyge Weyde has held full organic status since 2018.
The cheese is named after the polder on which the farm is located, where the herd are grazed on meadowland from April to November. In the winter months, they feed on dried grass from the farm to produce to highest quality raw milk that is packed full of flavour.
Aged for 18 months, Ruyge Weyde has a creamy and buttery texture that melts in the mouth and robust flavours of fruit and spice.
