Our Cheeses
Wholesale or Commercial - Ropp Jersey Cheese, Normal IL

For years, word-of-mouth and repeat customers have driven our sales, and we continue to grow and seek to expand our brand. This means partnering with like-minded operations that will market, prepare, and sell our quality products.


At Ropp Jersey Cheese, we have:

  • A developing brand with an established tradition
  • A local, accessible, and welcoming product store

What began as a self-sustaining family farm structured on “Old McDonald” principles has proudly graduated into a product line shared by many Central Illinois consumers such as:

  • Farmers’ Markets
  • Upscale Restaurants
  • Boutique Grocers
  • Fitness Enthusiasts
  • Home Chefs
  • Locavores

All orders are tailored to accommodate customer demand and proprietor preference. In addition to our own on-site marketplace, we continue to expand exposure among local grocers. We are a proud provider of larger-scale inventory to sports and entertainment concessionaries, and our field-to-fork premise has been embraced by several local chefs throughout Central Illinois.


“As more and more Americans become conscious of the personal, local and global consequences of our food consumption, ideas centered on environmental degradation and food products, including ‘Farm-To’ concept, continually tops the consumer trends charts.” Nutrition Lately May 28, 2013


“To a certain set of believers, supporting locally grown food is part of a philosophical viewpoint that eschews large farming operations, the heavy use of chemicals and certain agricultural practices, like raising animals in large, confined areas.” New York Times May 12, 2009

Cheese production is an art and a science. Taste the hand-crafted, artisan products created by Ropp Jersey Cheese.



Who would have guessed that striving to be conscientious farmers would lead us to a more tender pork, completely suffused with delicate taste?



We’re hands off in our beef production. That is, we use creature-friendly grazing and less obtrusive maintenance resulting in a healthier, tastier, leaner, yet still juicy burger.



At Ropp, we mean it when we say all-natural and free-range poultry. Those ideals marry perfectly with Ropp standards that have been growing for seven generations.
