We have a responsibility that extends from our 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.
Because we understand that our livelihood depends upon the wellbeing of the places we call home, we use the following sustainable stewardship guide for all the decisions we make.
On the farm. A farmer can’t become a member of the Tillamook County Creamery Association without first making a commitment to his or her animals’ welfare. Our high standard for animal care is guided by best management practices and monitored through strict milk quality standards.
On the shelf. As the leading natural cheese brand in the West, we produce millions of pounds of cheese each year. So it’s not surprising that one of our biggest concerns is packaging. We’re continually searching for ways to make a smaller impact on the environment with the packages we produce.
In the factory. We’re always on the lookout for ways to increase energy efficiency and minimize waste at the factory. Because no matter how small our environmental footprint gets, it’s still a footprint.
In the watershed. The Tillamook Bay watershed is an ecosystem of grasslands, creeks, hillsides and rivers, which merge into an estuary and flow into the Pacific Ocean. We are an active participant in ongoing solutions that work to protect our water quality and improve the watershed’s habitat and fisheries.
In the community. Because we helped build this community, we’re dedicated to improving it. Each year we give away thousands of pounds of cheese, yogurt and other Tillamook products to help end hunger. We also donate thousands of dollars to more than 200 humanitarian organizations throughout the state.
