For nearly as long as there has been a fair state of Illinois, the Ropp family has known to cherish the land’s fruitful agriculture and nurture it into wholesome products. Ever-dedicated to maintaining the integrity of the local landscape, our operations continue to seek ways to make the most of our resources with the greatest respect, minimal waste, and the highest quality product.

The family’s seventh generation continues to refine its craft from a small multiple-commodity operation, to an expanded dairy operation featuring heralded Jersey Cows, to an on-site cheese production facility. We are excited to expand our full-fledged, minimal waste dairy strategies into beef, pork, and poultry options. While our business was initially inspired as a self-sustaining family farm, our appreciation of conscientious strategies resulting in quality products has encouraged us to share the knowledge we have gleaned over the years. Never wavering from this basis, we continue to create and look forward to distributing the highest quality products.

Consistent throughout the Ropp farming history is a vision for making the most of the family resources.

our cheeses



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.
