The van den Goor Family
Goma Dairy Farm, LLC was established in 1999 after Geert and Gertie van den Goor moved to Michigan from the Netherlands. The van den Goor family care for 3,000 cows on their modern dairy farm and are proud of producing a safe and nutritious product.
The van den Goor family is passionate about educating consumers about all aspects of dairy farming, from animal care to milk safety to daily life on the farm.
The van den Goors love being involved in their community; mom Gertie is a trained nurse and volunteers weekly at the local hospice residence, and husband Geert has a special place in his heart for the Freedom Riders, a horseback riding program for children and adults with special needs. Read about Gertie’s dedication to volunteering on the Milk Means More blog.
“Dairy farming has come a long way from Grandpa on a three-legged stool. We need to get everyone excited about agriculture and promote it as a science. Young people still have an old-fashioned thought of agriculture and it’s so much more than that now.” – Gertie van den Goor
