tillamook_logoTillamook Cheese Factory Tour

We invite you to join the nearly one million fans who visit our Cheese Factory in Tillamook, Oregon, each year. Find out how Tillamook Cheese is made and get answers to your cheesiest questions, like how did they get these curds so darn squeaky? You’ll find answers to these questions and more on your self-guided factory tour, with interactive kiosks, viewing windows, videos and lots of fun stops along the way. You’ll have a bird’s-eye view of our cheesemaking and packaging teams in action, churning out 167,000 pounds of Tillamook Cheese each and every day. And of course the tour wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of that cheese.
