In the late 19th century, the Witte family built Wezenspyk at its current location. The farm was equipped for livestock farming. In the ’80s, however, Anton and Janine began making Farmer’s and sheep’s cheese. Later they added goat’s cheese. Nowadays, Wezenspyk Cheese Farm is a familiar name on Texel.
Who are we?
A TRUE FAMILY BUSINESS
Ever since 1981, Wezenspyk Cheese Farm has been producing the tastiest cheeses. Anton Witte and his son Job have created something unique with their cheeses. The Texel climate and unusual soil type have an excellent effect on the cheeses and you can taste that! Quality cheese influenced by the island of Texel.
Over 100 years of cheese
WEZENSPYK AND NATURE CONSERVATION
Nature conservation is an important topic for Wezenspyk, which is why the farm has joined forces with agricultural nature- and landscape association ‘De Lieuw’. Wezenspyk has made three plots of land available for the ‘Plasdras’ project: an area larger than ten football fields! The Plasdras project involves storing rainwater in a basin in the meadow during winter. Then, during spring, this water is allowed to spill through the landscape. This practice helps keep the area wet, allowing birds to find their food in the fertile soils. The Plasdras project is a way for Wezenspyk to try and harmonize its business operations with nature as much as possible.
