Better with age

By Jennifer Bremer

Some things just get better with age, which is definitely the case with the Gouda cheese made at a southeastern Iowa dairy farm.

Frisian Farms is located just east of Pella, Iowa, a community with a rich Dutch heritage. Brothers Mike and Jason Bandstra use that Dutch heritage when making Gouda cheese with a recipe straight from the Netherlands.

The cheese making process is done entirely on the farm, including the aging process, which can be as short as eight weeks or as long as two years.
