The trip this summer was mostly about the beauty of the Oregon Coast, but we did make a few educational (and in this case yummy) stops, one of those was the Tillamook Cheese Factory. The city of Tillamook sits west of Portland on Tillamook Bay. Located on the bay and also having 5 rivers, the city is known for fertile land and mild temperatures which makes for happy cows. Not as happy as California cows of course. The dairies there are part of a dairy cooperative called the Tillamook County Creamery Association, and the Cheese Factory is where they produce their cheese. They have recently added a modern visitors' center which was a fun way to spend an hour or two.
When driving through town, the factory is hard to miss.
for the next week...
