John here, and I will admit, Tillamook has had a special place in my heart for many years. I don’t know how many gallons of yogurt of theirs I’ve eaten over the years, nor how many pounds of cheese (I don’t buy smaller than 2lb bricks). I will personally admit however that I rarely buy their yogurt now as it contains too much added sugar and preservatives. Their cheese however is still consumed mightily.
Overall, Tillamook seems to have a focus on cow health, they talk about reducing cow stress because it affects the quality of milk. They talk about the various grasses and pastures used by the various local farmers (~110 different dairy farms). So if those farms have quality standards, then so does Tillamook brand products. Tillamook states that all farms are required to adhere to their strict standards of animal and milk care.
- Cheese (Flavor Variety)
- Ice Cream (Flavor Variety)
- Yogurt (Flavor Variety)
- Sour Cream (Normal, Light, FatFree, ‘Natural’)

- Feed is a mixture of forage, grasses, grains and corn silage.
- Co-op, so different farms may have different standards, but seems to have many grass fed cattle.
