Modern Family Farming at Penterman Dairy Farm

Exceptional Milk at Penterman Farm

Exceptional milk makes impressive cheese. We have our cows to thank for that. At Penterman Farm we treat our cows with love and respect; it is a code we live by on the farm. In return our herd provides us with full-flavored, remarkably consistent milk. Our cows relax in the sand in our free-stall barns. They have rotating back-scratcher brushes, sprinkler systems and fans to keep them cool. We like to call it the Cow Spa.


The farm is located across the Marieke Gouda cheesemaking facility. Early in the morning our cows provide the cheesemakers with the best quality fresh milk. Cheese is made within five hours of the cows being milked.


Visit Us and Tour Our Farm

Visit us 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!

Brown Swiss and Holstein cows provide the excellent milk for Marieke Gouda
