A: These terms signify the minimum age of the cheese, as defined by law:

  • Young (jong): 4 weeks
  • Aged (oud): 10 months
  • Mature (overjarig): 12 months

However, we’ve set even stricter rules for ourselves to achieve a truly wholesome taste. That’s why all our our aged cheese has been ripening for at least 2 years and our mature cheese between 3 and 4 years.
