Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy LLC

From cow to cheese is our motto at Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy! come see the cows, visit our on-site cheese production facility and of course, taste a squeaky fresh cheese curd. Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy is the largest single family owned dairy in Wisconsin. The farm was established back in 1946 when John Pagels father Carl Pagel borrowed the money from a neighbor to buy the farm. Since then the farm has stayed in the family and is thriving with many generations to come! Take a tour of the Ponderosa and learn all about the latest innovations in milk production (735 - 750 cows are milked per hour!) and alternative energies. Watch the milk from our cows go to our cheese production plant to create a variety of cheeses. Group Friendly (Motorcoach) destination.
