A Tillamook farmer once said that he wanted his kids to grow up working on the farm because he knew that if they succeeded there, they could succeed anywhere in life. Quality, cooperation, integrity, stewardship and responsiveness are the values that built the Tillamook brand, and we continue to live by these principles every day.
Commitment to quality. We believe that healthy cows produce quality, wholesome milk, and that the best milk makes the best dairy products – it’s a simple equation. It all starts on the farm, with well-cared for cows and milk as fresh and pure as possible and never with artificial growth hormones. We test each batch of milk to be sure it’s the highest quality possible. And we turn that milk into products that taste better because they’re made better. Like award-winning cheddar that’s aged slowly and naturally. Ice cream with just the right amount of creaminess. And yogurt that needs no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
Cooperation. Tillamook is a family that’s been growing for over 100 years. Our employees, customers, suppliers and communities are all part of that family. We work together, we respect each other and we partner only with those who share our principles. Luckily, we don’t think a family can ever be too big.
Integrity. This brand was founded on honesty and strength of character. We wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for a handful of pioneers who believed that integrity and hard work could build a strong and lasting business. Every day we try to live up to those standards by making tasty dairy products in the most honest-to-goodness way.
Stewardship. We have a responsibility that extends from the farms to your table. So we work to improve the communities we’re a part of. We help clean up the environment, donate to hundreds of local and regional organizations, support community events, and offer scholarships. When making decisions big and small, we never forget that our livelihood depends upon the well-being of the places we call home.
Responsiveness. Our relationship with you doesn’t end when you purchase a Tillamook product. We want to know how you feel about it and how we can make it better. We listen to every inquiry and suggestion, and we address each one honestly. We genuinely love hearing from you – your kind words and feedback help us grow!
