On January 2nd two powerhouse football teams will meet – one from the west and one from the midwest! My beloved 5th ranked Oregon Ducks will take on the 10th ranked Badgers of Wisconsin in the 98th Rose Bowl. This game have implications beyond just the turf though – there’s a cheese war afoot!

Wisconsin, commonly referred to as ‘America’s Dairyland,’ has been the preeminent cheese producing area in America since the 1890s. However, in 1909, a little dairy cooperative in Tillamook, Oregon changed the dairy landscape in America for good (and for the better). One hundred and three years later, we finally get to settle the battle for dairy dominance on the field in an epic battle of Duck vs. Badger. It will be an ooey, gooey, messy affair, but we are confident in our Ducks, and in our cheese!

What you will be putting on the table when the Ducks rumble with the Badgers on Monday – they need our support!

Although i have sampled many Wisconsin cheeses they have failed to compare to Tillamook cheese,
Go Ducks!

My Wisconsinite husband explains it this way: cheese is much like scotch. So, Wisconsin cheese is the very best blended scotch, which beats all other blended scotches, hands down. Tillamook, however, is single malt, barrel select, artisan scotch. No real comparison.

Yes! I love this, Wendy! This just made my day. I'm going to share this with the Tillamook team. Hope your new year is off to a great start. Thanks for being a Tillamook fan. And tell your husband hello for us!
