Butter is – like cheese- a very important dairy product in The Netherlands.
In the old days the Frisian farmers produced butter from milk first. Then they made cheese from the rest of the milk.
Especially in the Dutch province Zuid-Holland farmers near Leiden and Delft produced a lot of butter.
Like cheese, butter was brought to the market place by the farmers themselves. It was stored in small wooden barrels for transport.
