Cycling through Krimpenerwaard, you’ll discover that this waterlogged peat area is the birthplace of Gouda cheese. The Farmhouse Cheese Tour is a 42-km cycling tour that takes you through this area of small-scale farming. You start of course at De Waag in Gouda, which is where Gouda cheese conquered the world. From there, you cycle from one cheese farm to the other. Each has its own story to tell and some have very long histories.
