Let me introduce myself: I am Wheyd, the Holland’s Family Cheese mascot. I have big ears, am fluent in Dutch, English and Mouse, and love cheese. Marieke Gouda cheese is my favorite, of course. I am here to help Marieke, Rolf and their crew to update you on our award winning cheeses, how they are made and what is going on in Thorp, WI.


Hi, I am Wheyd!

Did you know that Marieke and her team of cheesemakers are making cheese everyday. About 40 wheels per day..... and sometimes even 80!


I hope to see you in Thorp sometime or at one of the events in the US.

We love to meet our fellow cheeselovers.

Love, Wheyd!

Oh, I just love food! Please make sure you check out Cafe Dutchess as they have the BEST breakfast and lunches!
