Over 100 years old and built in the pointed "stolp" style, typical of North Holland, the Irene Hoeve is the ideal place to see Gouda cheeses being made by hand, using the traditional farmer methods. Different mixtures of herbs and spices provide a great selection of farmer cheese which can be tasted, together with a glass of Dutch berry wine. Also, there is the possibility to see the traditional Dutch wooden shoes being made by hand. The Irene Hoeve is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the year. From 1st of October to 31st of March the farm is open only on reservation. If you wish, you can call us to make a reservation: +31 (0) 6 48 98 10 65.
