Loaf Love Tour Visits the San Antonio Zoo
Last Saturday, I spent the day at the San Antonio Zoo celebrating Mother’s Day in true cheesy style! My friendly brand ambassadors helped spread the Tillamook Loaf Love by sharing cheesy samples and taking photos. In honor of Mother’s Day, the first 100 moms who came to the zoo dressed in orange even got in free! Visitors played bingo all across the zoo and shared their photos on Instagram for a chance to win a year’s supply of Tillamook Cheese!
Here are some photos from the Instagram contest and my day at the zoo!
The Loaf Love Tour will be in San Antonio until May 23 giving out samples, coupons, and smiles to everyone they meet – so don’t miss out! Be sure to check out the tour schedule to see if there are stops near you!

Celebrating 104 years!
Have you ever seen a surprised loaf of cheese?
Well, let me tell you, I was about as surprised as they come on February 13 (our official founding day) when I was invited to the Cheese Factory where about 150 of my friends and family (employees and member-owners and their families) gathered for a party to celebrate Tillamook County Creamery Association’s 104th birthday, and I was the special guest of honor!
We had birthday cake and any flavor of Tillamook Ice Cream a loaf could want! We played games like Beanie Cow Toss, Spin the Wheel, Pick-a-Milk-Bottle, and a family favorite, Bingo!
It’s not every day that a company turns 104, so it was sure nice to stop and recognize the hard work and dedication that everyone at TCCA puts into every product that is sold on store shelves!
Tillamook Turns 104!!!
February is a very exciting month for many reasons: Valentine’s Day, Oregon’s Birthday, and most importantly, Tillamook’s Birthday!!! This year, on February 13, the farmer owned co-op is turning 104! That’s 104 years of delicious naturally aged cheese made in Tillamook, Oregon! In 1909, several small creameries teamed up to form Tillamook County Creamery Association with the mission to make delicious high quality cheese.
I have a lot to be thankful for! After all, if it wasn’t for those farmers 104 years ago, there’d be no me (Loafy)! Today, Tillamook is made up of 100 dairy farm families, many of whom are kin to the early pioneers. To celebrate this very exciting birthday, I’m writing and collecting birthday cards to share with our wonderful farmers! Will you join me!?!
Send your cards to:
4185 Highway 101 North
Tillamook, Oregon 97141
