The polder’s best kept secret

The polder’s best kept secret

Tasty fun at the Clara Maria Cheese Farm & Clog Factory

170 years ago, a beautiful farmhouse was built in the polders to the southwest of Amsterdam. It still stands on the same spot today, so come on in, and feel yourself literally step back in time. The cheese maker will share all the secrets of his trade with you and the clog maker will transform blocks of wood into footwear before your very eyes.

Say cheese!

Have you always wanted to work on a real farm?

Clara Maria is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support us!

Are you at ease with cheese?

These days, in the former stables, delicious Gouda cheese and traditional clogs are still made using traditional methods. Spending a few hours at the Clara Maria Cheese Farm & Clog Factory is not only fun and education, it is also really tasty.

Come and have a look around

We’d be delighted to give you a guided tour of the farm, and you can try our delicious fresh cheese. Celebrate a party, school trip or corporate event at Clara Maria. Watch a personal demonstration, and learn how cheese and clogs are made. We can tell you all about ourselves in Dutch, as well as in English and German.

Shop with us

Our souvenir shop stocks different flavours of cheese and other characteristic Dutch products.
