About Marc


Marc de RuiterI, a Dutch agriculturist living in China since 1997 with my wife, dreamed of setting up a cheese making farm to bless the small-scale farmers in our county. I worked for many years in agricultural businesses and development work. I have worked in Holland, United Kingdom and China in professional agricultural work.

Currently I am involved in different charity projects in our county as well as consulting for projects in China. I have restarted making Gouda cheese a pause of 4 years.

In 2004 the first cheeses were made and with major success. I found that the cheeses produced had the same quality and taste as those produced at farmhouses in Holland. There is no need anymore to bring cheeses from overseas as you can now get our cheeses of superior quality!

I have taught a young Chinese woman the art of cheese making.  She takes pride in making the best cheese of China! Together we make sure we continue to have great cheeses for all who are interested to taste real cheese! More about Yellow Valley®

Our specialty cheeses make a much appreciated gift.
