Traditional Dutch Style Farmstead Gouda Cheese
Rolf and Marieke Penterman of Holland's Family Cheese, migrated from the Netherlands and settled in Wisconsin in 2002 to carry on their passion for dairy farming. In 2006 they launched their new found passion for cheesemaking because they missed the Gouda from Holland and knew that they could make wonderful cheeses from their dairy's milk.
Marieke Gouda is an authentic Dutch cheese crafted from milk that is pumped directly from the milking parlor into the cheese vat…fresh and warm! After two hours of pressing into 18-pound wheels, the Gouda is placed in a salt-brine for 60 hours. From there each wheel is moved to a special cellar to reach the ideal age…from smooth and creamy after 60 days to sharp with complex flavors as the Gouda ages for nearly two years.
Marieke Gouda uses farm-fresh Wisconsin milk along with ingredients and supplies from Holland to create an Old World Gouda steeped in pride and tradition. They believe that treating their cows well means they will produce the best quality milk, and great milk makes great cheese.
