Tillamook County Creamery Association

The Tillamook County Creamery Association is a dairy co-operative headquartered in Tillamook County, Oregon. The association's main facility is the Tillamook Cheese Factory located two miles north of the small town of Tillamook, Oregon. The factory hosts over a million tourists each year. Visitors watch the production of cheese from a viewing gallery over the main production floor.[1]

The co-operative includes 150 dairy farms mostly within Tillamook County.[1] Products produced by the co-operative include milk, cheese, ice cream, sour cream and yoghurt. Their most famous product is Tillamook Cheese.[1]

In 1854, several farmers from the county built a schooner to transport butter to Portland, Oregon. Peter McIntosh and T. S. Townsend established the county's first cheese factory in 1894. The assocation was founded by dairy farmers in 1909.[1]
