Herma’s News – Getting ready for spring! and Daylight Savings Special on Gouda

There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Herma’s Daylight Savings Special…

ALL Goudas 20% off

Holland has the perfect conditions for producing high quality cheese. Fresh green meadows provide the ideal environment for the famous Friesian cows. And our mild climate helps produce the superior milk that is the foundation of our creamy cheese. – Kroon

In Holland Gouda is as much a staple to carry in the kitchen as is milk, bread and butter – a wonderful cheese to always have on hand! Gouda, or “(g)How-da” as they pronounce it in Holland, is a Dutch cheese that originated in the middle ages and is named after the city from whence it was traded and sold.

It is now one of the most popular cheeses in the world and is celebrated for its rich flavour and smooth texture. Gouda is enjoyed as a table cheese, melted in soup and sauces as well as grated over food and enjoyed within a sandwich. Whichever way you slice it, Gouda will have everyone wanting more.

At Herma’s we carry Kroon’s..
