Today John, Walter & Lenneke’s son, is the head cheesemaker. He graduated with a degree in Dairy Science & Processing from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he further developed his passion for cheesemaking. One of his first contributions was adding the highly praised White Cheddar to their list of handcrafted cheeses. In 2013, John married Jessica, a valuable addition to the team. She helps with cheesemaking and constantly works to improve our gardens and business.
Although they've come a long way from the original milk barn, they still make small batches of handcrafted cheese with the same passion their family did four generations ago. Today they offer several varieties of award-winning Gouda and other specialties in their expanded full-scale cheese plant in Oakdale where customers can enjoy their cheese, relax and have a picnic under the trees next to the pond.
