Café DUTCHess & Penterman Farm in Thorp, Wisconsin
Welcome to Thorp, Wisconsin
We would like to welcome you to Thorp, Wisconsin. We recently opened our new location in Thorp, where the farm, cheesemaking facility and the Marieke Gouda store are all on the same premises.
We are located just off Highway 29, exit 108 or just look out for the big cow 'Dutchess'.
Café DUTCHess is open Tuesday - Saturday 8am - 4pm. We serve breakfast until 11:00 am then a lunch with a soup and lunch special DAILY. Find our specials located on our Café DUTCHess Facebook page. As you are watching how our cheesemakers are handcrafting our Marieke Gouda cheeses, you can enjoy an ice cream or a chocolate treat also at Café DUTCHess. Look at our menu here!
The Penterman Farm is located across the Marieke Gouda cheesemaking facility and is also equipped with viewing windows. Also we have a huge jumping pillow (free) where children (and adults!) can get rid of some energy!
Visit our store and our cows anytime or book a tour and we are more than happy to show you around and share our passion for modern family farming and the art of handcrafted cheesemaking!
