BRANDS UNIEKAAS Directly translated to English, Uniekaas means “one cheese” and that’s exactly what the company stands for. In the early 1900’s, the Dutch cheese market comprised of small independent cheese producers handling all aspects of cheese production. It wasn’t until the mid 1950’s that a small cooperative of cheese makers came together to share their knowledge and resources to create what is known today as Uniekaas. This formation helped to build one of the leaders in the Dutch cheese market which focused on exploring new ways to create Gouda cheeses without ever losing the importance of Dutch cheese making traditions. Today, Uniekaas is known for bringing unique styles of specialty Dutch cheese to markets across the world. From its flagship brand Parrano®, to unique gouda styles made from cow, goat, or sheep milk. Uniekaas is a leader of Dutch cheese steeped in decades of tradition and exploration. COACH FARMS Faithful to the traditional methods of the French farmstead cheesemaker, we at Coach Farm are turning out authentic, artisanal goat cheeses that were once found only in the remote villages of France. Our farm is located in a small Hudson Valley village, just two hours outside of new York City. We have over 900 French Alpine dairy goats, born and raised on our farm. The small, white-tiled creamery where we make our cheeses connects directly to the milking parlor, ensuring only the freshest cheeses! PARRANO Parrano® is an unforgettable cheese made from an authentic Italian recipe. It incorporates the alluring, nutty, and fine-aged flavor profile of Parmesan with the pliant, versatile texture of a young Dutch Gouda, making it easier to slice, shred or melt. Parrano is perfect as a snack, on its own, or added to any of your favorite recipes.
