Since November 2013, Marieke Penterman and Rolf Penterman opened a brand new state-of-the-art facility along highway 29 in Thorp, WI. It includes a store and viewing windows to see the farm and cheesemaking from up close. This is where their ultimate dream came true; the opportunity to have a location where they can share their passion for modern family farming and handcrafting the best Marieke Gouda in an open and educational environment. You are always welcome to visit!
After touring the farm, save room for the DUTCHess Cafe. Their chéf makes farm-style breakfast, lunch, and GOUDAlicious appetizers. Take a seat at one of the rustic tables and survey their aging room where their award-winning Gouda is made. Or, during warmer months, take a seat outside and gaze across the scenic farm! Open 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM every day!
