Hollands Family Cheeses award winning Marieke Gouda is now available with bacon. Hollands Family Cheese follows an authentic old world gouda recipe, importing its equipment and cultures from cheesemaker Marieke Pentermans native Holland to the farmstead operation in Thorp, Wisconsin. This new variety incorporates a local Wisconsin made product, Nolecheks bacon, also produced in Thorp. The result is a creamy, slightly sweet raw milk gouda cheese studded with real smoky bacon.

This is a good one
By Steve Colby

This is an excellent blend of two distinct flavors and is a super combo. Nice and creamy with that great Gouda flavor. My wife, who worked in Amsterdam many years ago said we Americans mispronounce it's name. In Holland they call it Gowda not Gooda. I never challenge her on stuff like this.

Love Gouda
By William Stussie

Just enough bacon to set it off. Great cheese.

wish it was bacon cheddar
By Cindy Laughlin

This may work in a toasted cheese sandwich but I was a bit disappointed in the mild gouda. I may try pairing it with some sweet cherries and a beer. My favorite will still be the 5 year old Cheddar.
