It’s all about the cheese

Driving the Oregon coast can make you really crave cheese.  Why not stop for a tour and some delicious cheese samples?  Where you ask? The Tillamook cheese factory, of course!

CHEEEEEEEESE!

CHEEEEEEEESE! 

The parking lot is huge and plenty of RV parking with easy in and out of the lot. I was really surprised on how busy it was in the middle of the week. So that might be a consideration if you do want a quick in and out stop. Our stop was about an hour and a half. I did find the prices of the cheese were all MSRP.  They seemed higher than the prices at the grocery store.

Something really impressed me about the factory…you know those thick slices of cheese? They are cut by human hands on a deli slicer right on the manufacturing line! We could not resist having a grilled vintage cheddar cheese sandwich on sourdough for lunch! It was fabulous.  Did I mention we really really love cheese?

“With about 30 different flavors, the fudge counter is no quick stop for the indecisive. Fortunately, a few sample tastes will steer you in the right direction.”

If you need cheese, ice cream, or any other mouthwatering  dairy product or some lunch at the cafe. Stop by the Tillamook factory!  You can check hours etc on their website: Tillamook factory tour.

If you do like cheese tasting, here is a tip from when we lived in Seattle.  I love Beecher’s!  It is all handmade. Their flagship cheese is amazing! Check them out here:  http://www.beechershandmadecheese.com/

We have nothing but Beecher’s and Tillamook in RV refrigerator right now 🙂
