Located outside the hamlet of Pella, IA, Frisian is a small operation focused soley on the production of traditional gouda cheese. Brothers Jason and Mike Bandstra manage a herd of 80 Holstein cows, and they also operate the grain farm where they source their cow’s feed. A far cry from bland, wax dipped goudas, Frisian’s cheese reflects the tradition of farmstead goudas, a perennial favorite of cheesemongers sometimes known as “the Gouda the Dutch keep for themselves.”
Frisian Farm's boldest of flavor cheese. This gouda is aged 1000 days, allowing the caramel and nutty notes to deepen and the crystals to form, creating a wonderful flavor you won't want to stop eating.
