Welcome to the Simonehoeve

Our cheese farm and clog factory near Volendam

The Simonehoeve is a traditional cheesefarm and clog factory.
We invite you to come and take a look at how cheeses and clogs are made.
Of course you can try on some clogs and try and buy cheese in our shop. But we are more than that…

More than cheese and clogs

The Simonehoeve has a lot of possibilities for a completely arranged day out. What would you like to do?
A cosy excursion or an afternoon of Old Dutch games?
Decorating clogs or rather a tour to Volendam and some fish tasting?
From a Dutch lunch to the smoking of mackerel or eel. From folklore to high tea.
At the Simonehoeve it is all possible.

Whether you are coming alone, or with a big or small group, we have space enough.
A company trip, family day or just a day out? Ask us for the possibilities.
De Simonehoeve is always here to help you.|
