WHO IS DOROTHY ?

As a 1930s farm girl, our hero, Dorothy Renter, fell in love with cows,specifically, the tender, sweet-smelling animals at her grandfather’s Illinois creamery. The creamery soon grew into Kolb-Lena, the loveliest (and first) European-style cheesery in the American Midwest.

Dorothy joined quickly to the cheese-making world, working at Kolb-Lena before and after school. Whether it was helping with the cheese or tending to the bees for her family’s honey company, her spunk always shined through. And her parents never had to tell her to say cheese, she smiled just being around it.

“ A trio of stories spanning a century
is what lies at the heart of Dorothy's cheeses ”
