Just off the freeway … cheese and breeze

On our way home from the Herrshner’s Warehouse Sale (in Stevens Point, Wis.), we stopped in Thorp, Wisconsin – in search of cheese curds. The cheese store is at the Penterman Farm, whose cows provide the milk for the Marieke Gouda cheese that is served and sold on the site.

There are children’s activities  … such as the self propelled go-karts and vehicles or you can jump and jump and jump …

Outside was absolutely beautiful … with a nice breeze, under a bright orange umbrella …

And the food was wonderful and priced very affordably. And, of course, included cheese curds …

And you can shop for gifts and cheese products.

The back area where they keep the freshly made cheese

Or you can people watch … I would guess there is an Amish community nearby.

Thanks for reading! I hope you return.
