frequently asked questions

WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR CHEESE?

Tillamook Cheese is available at a variety of stores throughout the U.S. Currently, the full product line is most commonly found in the Pacific Northwest. To look for Tillamook Cheese and other products in your area, please visit Where to Buy. Because we sell our cheese to grocery stores through distributors, it’s sometimes difficult for us to know exactly which type of Tillamook Cheese is currently stocked in a specific store. If you’re looking for a particular flavor of cheese, we recommend that you call a store to check on their cheese inventory. You can also purchase most of our cheeses and cheese curds from our online store. If you would like to be able to purchase Tillamook products at a store that doesn’t currently carry them, we recommend speaking to the store manager and requesting our products.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO STORE MY CHEESE?

All Tillamook Cheese should be stored in the fridge. To prolong the life of your loaf, follow these tips:

• Keep your cheese in its original package.
• Wash your hands before handling.
• Avoid touching the cheese that you plan on putting back in the fridge.
• When slicing your loaf, pull the wrapper back and cut off the desired amount of cheese.
• Tightly fold the original wrapper back over the end.
• Press foil or plastic wrap over the end of your cheese and place it in an airtight, sealed plastic bag or airtight container.
• Place your cheese in the coldest section of the fridge (less than 40° Fahrenheit).


To help prevent mold from developing on sliced and shredded cheese, follow these tips:

• Keep your cheese in its original package.
• Wash your hands before handling.
• Avoid touching the cheese that you plan on putting back in the fridge.
• Don’t put your hand directly in the bag of shredded cheese; remove with a clean utensil, or pour the cheese out of the bag.
• For 5-pound bags of shredded cheese, separate and store the cheese in several smaller resealable bags.
• Use within 3-5 days after opening (in other words, enjoy often!)

CAN I EAT THE CHEESE PAST THE BEST-BY DATE?

It depends on the type of cheese. Cheese is a perishable dairy product, so if it isn’t stored properly, it will mold. Though we always suggest using Tillamook products by the best by date printed on the packaged, our naturally-aged cheddar cheese will continue to age and sharpen in your fridge if stored properly. It must be stored in an unopened package in the coldest part of your refrigerator (below 40 degrees Fahrenheit). Once opened, however, cheddar should generally keep for a few months. Be sure to check for mold, odor, a slimy texture, or sour flavor before digging in. It’s always better to be safe than sorry! Stirred curd cheeses (also known as granular cheeses), such as Tillamook Monterey Jack, Colby, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, and Hot Habanero Jack, don’t age well because they’re higher in moisture. If stored properly, they should keep up to their code date, but they shouldn’t be eaten after the code date has passed.
