Cheese is a perishable product that shouldn’t stay out of refrigeration for long. So how might I give the gift of cheese you ask? Well, it may not be the simplest gift to give, but if you get creative, there are plenty of fun ways to give the gift of cheese. Here are some ways that I have surprised my family with the gift of cheese:

Stockings: If you sneak down to the stockings before the rest of the family, you can take some cheese out of the fridge and put it on the very top of the stockings! It puts a big smile on everyone’s face! In my family, before you put the cheese back in the fridge, you have to grab a sharpie and label which cheese is yours so someone else doesn’t snag it when you’re not looking!

Under the tree: Okay, I don’t mean wrap a loaf of cheese and put it under the tree, but this is what you can do… Write a little note for someone to look in the fridge for their gift. Find a little box and put the note in it. Wrap it up and put it under the tree! Make sure to put a loaf of cheese front and center in the fridge ahead of time. You could even put a bow on it!

By mail: Yes, you can mail cheese! The Tillamook Online Store has a selection of cheese, apparel, gift boxes, and more! We pack cheese up with insulation and ice packs to keep it nice and cold while it gets to its destination. But remember, the last day to ship for your order to arrive by Christmas is December 21st by noon.

Happy gift (cheese) giving!

I would like to find out if you ever donate samples to Non-Profits. We are having a Conference on Aging Event on April 22,2017. And we are trying to come up with a healthy breakfast. I love your cheese and keep it on hand all the time!
I think I have seen small sample sizes before but I want to pair your cheese with a fruit for them, I think this is a much healthier breakfast choice for the Seniors
I work for the Pasadena Senior Center and we are a 501 C3 non-profit.
We run different events through out the year, but the Conference on Aging and the Senior Olympics are our biggest . Each event host's over 1800 seniors. The senior Games start June 3, 2017 and runs until June 25. It hosts 27 different games for the plus 50+ age groups.
We offer many different levels of Sponsorship packages.

Did you know that the 50+ market control 77% of the nations assets and own 50% of all corporate stock.
Spend over $300 billion in discretionary income each year. Account for 50% of all vacation travel each year and 80% of luxury travel. Acquire 41% of all new cars. Spend $35 billion on their grandchildren each year. Purchase 74% of all prescription drugs and 51% of all OTC products. Spend $7 billion on line each year. Spend more per capita on groceries than any other age group. Someone in the US turns 50 every 7 seconds. Over half of all US households are over 50 years old.
Consumers aged 50+ spend $2.9 trillion on goods and services.
Seniors are loyal to the companies that support them.
They have the biggest spending power in the USA today.

I look forward to hearing back from you.
Thank You very much for your time,
