Ameland Cheese Farm

In the middle of Ameland’s green expansive meadows, lies the Ruijgh family’s cheese farm. Here Johannes and Sanne have been making one of the tastiest Amelander cheeses and farmhouse ice cream since 1950. They make this with the curd maker of C. van ‘t Riet Dairy Technology.


The Ruijgh family’s cheese farm is a household name on Ameland. For generations, the most delicious cheeses have been made here. Johannes and Sanne run the farm. They take pride in their traditional craft and use only the finest ingredients.

Ruijgh family cheeses are made from fresh, whole milk from Ameland cows. They are made in different flavors, such as young mature, mature, extra mature and old. The cheeses are available at the farm store and at various outlets on Ameland.
