Welcome To Our World

Designed by iconic Seattle-based architect duo, Olson-Kundig, The Creamery is made to look like a modern barn. The big windows let in plenty of light and give our guests views of the natural beauty that surrounds us.
COVID-19 Update

Updates as of August 27:

At this time the Creamery is open to visitors 7 days a week from 10am-6pm. Visitors can take the self-guided tour, shop at the market gift shop, and enjoy delicious Tillamook food and ice cream at our café.

Per the latest state guidelines in Oregon, masks are again required indoors AND outdoors in all public spaces, regardless of vaccination status, including our Creamery. All Creamery visitors over age 5 must wear a mask at all times while indoors and outdoors (other than while actively eating or drinking in our seated dining area). We ask visitors to please be prepared with face masks for all members of your party. We will have extra face masks available at the main entrance for those that need one.

In an attempt to keep our space as safe as possible we are closely monitoring visitor numbers, and there may be a bit of a wait to get in at peak times. We appreciate your patience as we prioritize the safety of our visitors and our employees.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

What to See

Chief Creamery Greeter
Meet Flower, our very own award-winning show cow. She stands guard of all the tastiness that lives inside and keeps a friendly eye on the guests as they enter.
Look Up. It’s Floating Loaves!
This sculpture was also designed by Olson Kundig and inspired by the cheddar blocks created right here in the factory. All art should be this
delicious looking.
Caring For Our Cows
Some of our farmer owners have been Tillamook farmers for four generations. When it comes to cow care, our ladies get pampered with the best care, from fitness trackers and extra soft bedding to rolling back massagers and perfectly prepared feed.
Cow exhibit
Go Hands-On
Milking all the cows in Tillamook by hand would take forever! That's why our farms use more modern methods like fully-automated, robotic milkers or the more traditional milking parlor pictured here.
The Loaf Low-Down
In the Viewing Gallery, take a behind-the-scenes look at our cheese factory. You’ll discover just how we turn high-quality milk into award-winning cheddar. Yep! That’s real future Tillamook cheese down there. Next stop: aging for anywhere from 3 months to 5 years.
Graze With Us
Our American Classic inspired menu with a cheesy twist, created by Tillamook's Executive Chef, Josh Archibald. Rediscover a new favorite dish, but don't forget the fried cheese curds!
Cup or Cone?
If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, you won’t want to miss our ice cream counter. Here, our iconic, super creamy flavors are scooped up big. And, you didn’t hear it from us, but sometimes we serve up new flavors before they hit stores.
Grab a Memento
No trip to the Tillamook Creamery is complete without a little keepsake! Grab something for the dairy lover in your life with cool water bottles, hats, and kids' books. Or snag some Tillamook gear for yourself to wear proudly wherever you go.
For The Kitchen
Get your hands on limited edition vintages and exclusive flavors you can’t find anywhere else. Foodies will love the collection of Oregon-made essentials. But you can always just fill your shopping basket with your favorite loaf for yourself–we won’t tell.

Why did you rebuild your facility in Tillamook?

The old building for visitors in Tillamook was more than 60 years old. It held a lot of memories for us, but we are excited to have a brand new space that is bigger, more interactive, and has more unique features for our guests to enjoy. The new facility also includes much-needed “back of house” upgrades to help the Creamery run more smoothly.

What changes were made at the new Tillamook Creamery?

Some of the new features include:

  • A larger dining area with more indoor seating and a spacious outdoor covered patio for visitors to enjoy year-round.

  • A new menu, showcasing Tillamook products and other high quality, wholesome real food ingredients, including wood fired pizzas, our favorite grilled cheese sandwiches and much more. The new menu will also feature wine and beer from the Pacific Northwest.

  • An expanded Tillamook Ice Cream counter, available for indoor and seasonal outdoor service.

  • A large retail space featuring Tillamook products and high-quality gifts and souvenirs available for purchase all in one, easy-to-shop area.

  • An enhanced viewing experience of our cheese production and packaging operations with better acoustics and exhibit signage, as well as a small theater space where visitors can view short videos about how Tillamook products are made.

  • An in-depth farm exhibit where visitors can learn about cows, dairy technology, and life on the farm.

  • More samples than ever before!
