We invite you to visit our farm and learn first hand how fine quality cheeses are made. Explore our grounds, pet our pure bred prize winning Jersey calves. Then take a look through our 600 square foot retail store featuring a cheese slicing room with viewing windows, self-serve product coolers and full-service retail counter. Please be sure to understand you are visiting a working farm. We welcome you to enjoy our farm at your own risk.
Why Jersey Cheese?
At Ropp Farms we raise only registered Jersey cows. Jerseys are a breed of cows that have a beautiful smaller frame, are butterscotch in color, and produce a much creamier milk. This rich milk is due to a consistently higher protein and calcium content produced specifically by Jersey cows.
Why Ropp Jersey Cheese?
For 10+ years the Ropp Family has dreamed of starting an on-farm cheese processing facility and retail store. Formerly, production agriculture was a vital fabric to daily life. Now many children don’t realize their milk comes from a cow and not just the grocery store. The Ropp Family would like to share their knowledge and farm heritage to not only educate the public but also promote agriculture as a vital industry to American life.
**We proudly offer the finest in Illinois produced goods.
