Just over a hundred years ago, several small creameries teamed up to form the Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) to ensure the quality and reputation of cheese made in the Tillamook Valley.
The creameries that created TCCA knew that together, working cooperatively toward that goal, they could make even better products. Maybe even make a better life for themselves. They were right.
Today, they are made up of over 100 dairy farm families who own TCCA (many of whom are kin to the early pioneers), and the Tillamook brand can be found in stores from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine.
As much as they have grown, they haven’t lost sight of their past. They still use the same cheddar cheese recipe, now over 100 years old. And they are still true to the values that brought them together in the first place. They treat every day as an opportunity to follow the founders’ example, by working hard to make the highest quality, best-tasting dairy products. Dairy farming is what they love to do, and we’re proud of our products. They know you’ll enjoy their cheese as much as they do.
Making great cheddar begins at the farm, with the highest quality milk. Their farmer-owners are proud of the milk their cows produce.
