Murray's Estate Gouda hails from one of the last remaining family farms in the Netherlands. It gets its deep, milky aroma and crème brûlée flavor from the milk of cows that graze on fresh pastures studded with sweet clover. Play up its sweetness with a spoonful of Sidehill Raspberry Jam, or go for a savory snack and pair with Murray's Genoa Salami.

“Having grown up in the Netherlands, I miss being within walking distance of markets that sold simple farmstead cheese with a depth of flavor and a moist, fudgy texture at any age—that were also accessible at any price point and could be enjoyed on a sandwich or as a snack. Murray's Estate Gouda is all of those things to me. Try it sliced with ham, butter, and sidehill farm strawberry jam on simple whole grain bread. For extra credit, throw that same sandwich on the panini press.”

  • Murray’s Estate Gouda is produced by one of the last remaining family farms in the Netherlands.
  • The multi-generational farmstead is located in the eastern region of Twente in the Netherlands, surrounded by picturesque tulip fields.
  • Even the most basic Goudas tend to be sweeter, thanks to the step of washing the curd during the cheesemaking process. By flushing the curds with fresh water, the cheesemaker clears away residual lactic acid from the fermentation process, reducing the acidity and letting the milky sweetness shine.
  • The cheese’s distinct sweetness can be traced to two sources: first, the cows whose milk is used to make the cheese graze on fresh pastures studded with clover, which lends sweetness to the milk and accounts for the cheese’s signature yellow paste. Second, once produced, the full wheels of Estate Gouda are washed with a caramel solution to enhance the sweetness.
  • While Gouda is a Dutch tradition, dating all the way back to 1184, this Gouda is exclusive to Murray’s here in the United States.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
