New year, time for new plans!

De Kandelaar’s residents wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year with hopefully lots of fun and activities.

In November, the last sugar beets were cleared and the land was plowed. The beets are waiting in the yard to go to the Cosun factory next week. Despite the fact that it is not that busy in the winter period, we have not been idle.  We are working hard on our new plans.  We want to add more value to our beautiful milk product.  Lisette, Joris’ girlfriend, works in a large cheese factory and that’s how her hobby in cheese making started. What could not be better than being able to offer our guests a delicious piece of cheese made from our own milk.

So recently, we started to study cheese making and started looking for cheese molds, large pans and everything that is required to make a delicious cheese. Marc has made a beautiful press table.  At the moment, we are tasting our first batch of cheese and it tastes delicious!  Meanwhile, the storage is starting to grow with pounds and kilos of cheeses, including cheeses in the shape of a heart.  Perhaps an idea for a nice cheese platter at Valentine’s Day.  We are still in the testing phase, but it will not be long before cheese from Flevoland is available at De Kandelaar!
