The Penterman family of Holland’s Family Cheese is embracing the Wisconsin cheese-making tradition and adding a Dutch flare.

Rolf Penternan

by Taylor Pires, Hoard’s Dairyman Editorial Intern

Marieke and Rolf Penterman have a passion for dairying that was larger than their home country, the Netherlands, could accommodate. In May of 2002, Rolf and his brother moved to Thorp, Wis., so they could more easily farm and expand their operation with fewer barriers. In looking for farming options, Rolf did apprenticeships around the world and liked the space available to farm in America and Canada. “You need room for farming.
