Your trip has come to an end and you want to take a special gift from the Netherlands for your friends and acquaintances. Dutch cheese and tulip bulbs can be a good option. We recommend that you buy your cheese from a good cheese shop (Farm cheese), cheeses are sold young, mature and old. The most expensive cheese is the aged cheese, if you buy this cheese, which has a sharp and very hard taste, I recommend you to cut it at the cheese shop before you buy it. Be sure to taste the cumin cheddar cheese, they will last longer if you vacuum the cheeses before you buy them. Addresses where you can buy farm cheese:
