Cheese and wooden shoes: Manufacturing Dutch icons

On the outskirts of Amsterdam, life starts early at the Clara Maria Farm, where every day since he was a boy, Kees-Jan van Wees has milked the cows in a 160-year-old building. Just hours later, he’ll turn that milk into a Dutch product beloved around the world: Gouda cheese. Jane Pauley reports on a farm where centuries-old Dutch traditions (like making wooden shoes) have continued, and been embraced by Kees-Jan’s American-born wife, Katrina.
