We are thrilled to announce that we were named the 2013 Grand Champion of the U.S.

Expert, licensed cheesemaker, Marieke Penterman and her team, handcraft traditional
Dutch Goudas using the time-tested, Old World, cheesemaking methods Marieke brought
with her when she emigrated from the Netherlands. The Holland’s Family Cheese team
transforms farmstead-fresh, raw, cow’s milk from their own cows milk on the family
farm into award-winning cheese, which is then carefully cured on imported Dutch pine
planks in temperature and humidity-controlled aging cellars. This premium milk provides
each wheel of cheese with the exceptional flavor and texture you’ve grown to expect
from Holland’s Family Cheese. Enjoy!
