North Hendren Co-operative Dairy Company: Organized in 1923. First board of directors included John Gregorich, Joe Pekol, Joe Ule, Frank Perovsek, and MIke Kotcon. Located on Spencer Rd between Fisher and Tower Ave. (SE corner of the SW quarter of the SE quarter of Section 3). Frnk Caspar was cheesemaker, and wood fired boiler was the source of power. In 1952, the co-op was reorganized, in order to extend the membership to all current and future patrons. As of 1982, Robert Schmidt was the manager. I know there's been several cheesemakers in there, including George Gregorich, and I believe Gary Humboldt is currently head cheesemaker now. I believe they're strictly Bleu Cheese now.
