The CréMeer is a soft raw cow milk cheese aged for 3-4 weeks. Like all Backenholzer cheeses, the CréMeer has an edible natural rind.

This raw milk speciality was named Cré Meer because as it's soft, creamy and fresh as a North Sea breeze. White mould with a light red smear, soft flowing rim with a chalky centre. Best to take the cheese out of the fridge some minutes before eating it to really enjoy the delicate aromatics.

Creamy with a light acidity, this soft cheese is a good friend for any cheese plate!

Focusing on regional cheese making traditions, Backensholz's cheeses are new interpretations of generation old recipes and techniques, each batch unique and carefully made by hand. Since 2022 the farm has also been producing it's own renewable energy from solar panels and biogas from plant and animal waste, producing enough electricity to power their farm and over 2000 households.

The award winning Backensholz Hofkäserei is located in Schleswig Holstein, 50kms south of Flensburg. The name "Backensholz" comes from Danish and means "behind the forest". The small village is not only the origin of the organic products, but also a home. A family business for generations - today run by Martina and Ernst Metzger Petersen according to Bioland guidelines. Using raw milk from their own herd, grazing on grass and feed grown exclusively on their farm, Backensholz has been producing exceptional cheeses since 1991.
