I Loaf Tillamook

Some people head up the Oregon coast for the rocky beaches, tide pools, and breathtaking Ocean views.  I wanted to go to Tillamook cheese factory.

Oh, what a tasty and educational stop it was.  I learned that their medium cheddar ages for 2 months, sharp for 9 months and extra sharp for 15 months.  The “Vingage White Extra Sharp Cheddar” (ah, the je ne se quoi) ages 2 years.  Also, it takes 10 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of cheese and they make 167,000 lbs of cheese a day!  Of course I tried as many cheeses as I could.  But I also had to try their very northwesty ice creams: huckleberry, marionberry, black cherry, and peach.  A scrumptious stop along the Oregon Coast.
