Way back in 1978 when I was attending the University of California and began grocery shopping for myself, I discovered this cheddar cheese called Tillamook that was far tastier than other cheddar cheeses. I bought the Tillamook cheddar and left the Kraft cheese on the shelf.
Fast forward to 2002, when I followed a friend's advice and visited The Tillamook Cheese Factory for the first time. Who knew that a cheese factory could be such a fun place to visit? And we all know that fun is healing because that is the whole point of this blog. The Oregon coast town of Tillamook boasts two cheese factories which welcome visitors -- The Tillamook Cheese Factory and the Blue Heron Cheese Company.
