The special environment of Terschelling
Skylger cheese is produced by cheese maker Jan-Willem Zeilstra in Terschelling. Making cheese is his passion and his life. The cheese is made in the traditional way in the cheese factory in Terschelling. The new cheese factory in West-Terschelling is partly an initiative of Royal FrieslandCampina. Their strategy is aimed at the production of special cheeses with an authentic story. And Terschelling definitely has that. The Terschelling polder, located in the vicinity of the Wadden Sea, is more than 1,000 hectares in size and is characterized by its open landscape. Meadows are restored to their former glory here, for example by expanding wet meadows.
