Kaasboerderij Simonehoeve - cheese farm

For an old-time Dutch experience visit De Simonehoeve, a traditional cheese farm and clog maker in the town of Volendam. The Klomp family and their professional staff keep alive these Dutch crafts, dressing in traditional costumes throughout the year and demonstrating their artisan skills.

Cheese, clogs and living
Dutch history Be it a family day trip or a larger group tour, the farm specialises in sharing knowledge, firstly through cheese tastings and providing visitors the opportunity to try on wooden clogs. But it also hosts workshops and tours, for example, clog painting, tours of Volendam, high teas or an afternoon of old Dutch games. There’s also a cosy restaurant on the property (for breakfast, lunch, dinner or buffets) and a shop offering lots of local produce, Delftware and food and drink that you can sample for free.

Opening times
April - August daily 08.00 - 18.00
September - March daily 08.00 - 17.00

For a visit after 17.00 or outside regular opening times, please contact Simonehoeve.
