Cheese with respect for people, animals and nature

Family Company

Two generations working together

40 years of organic cheese Aurora!

In 1980 Harry and Janny ten Dam founded the dairy company De Dageraad. Nowadays, over 35 years later, De Dageraad has blossomed to a flourishing family company where the parents, together with their children Manon, Joris, Tim and Daan have expanded the company to an innovative enterprise. Due to growing interest from abroad the family decided on a more international name: Aurora. Today Aurora is known for its delicious organic and dynamic organic cheeses.

The cheese production takes place in Ven-Zelderheide (Netherlands) and an innovative and modern cheese warehouse is located right across the German border in Kranenburg. We will gradually move the entire production to Kranenburg (Germany). In December we will also start selling in our shop in Kranenburg.

The vision of family ten Dam: ‘We want to produce organic and sustainable food in such a way where we boost organic agriculture to create one healthy environment for animals, mankind and nature. With our cheeses we want to contribute to the health of people. This all in collaboration with our milk suppliers to come to a healthy composed milk of high quality. Cheese produced with respect for nature, animal welfare and humans.”
