Things to do at the Tillamook Cheese Factory
The key attractions are the self-guided tour, and Tillamook Cheese Shop:
- The self-guided tour provides a bird's eye view of the factory floor, and includes videos and interactive kiosks on the cheese-making process. Visitors can also learn about the history of Tillamook, a farmer's co-operative formed over a century ago, and now composed of over 110 farmer-owner families. Tillamook Cheese Factory churns out over 167,000 pound of cheese each day.
- After touring the factory, visitors can then stop by the Tillamook Cheese Shop to stock up on goodies, including cheese, ice-cream, yogurt, sour cream and souvenirs. The squeaky Tillamook cheese curds are a big hit with kids, only available at the shop.
