The Blue Heron Cheese Factory is often overlooked in favor of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. They are both different from each other and should both be visited. The Blue Heron has a barnyard full of animals and fowl to see on your way in and out. The kids of all ages love it. Inside is a shop full of jams,... More

This is a bustling little store that offers free cheese tastings and has a large selection of gourmet foods. The pepper brie was outstanding! There is a ton to see in this store and all kinds of foodie delights from fresh cheeses to packaged dips and bottles and jars of jams and spreads and condiments galore. The dill mustard was... More

The selection of delectibles was awesome. Service at the wine bar was not good. Uninterested and comically slow. Decent selection of northwest wine.

I was stuck in the traffic going into the Tillamook Cheese Factory and I noticed this place on the side of the road that seemed to be a combination farm and store. I made a right into the unpaved parking lot, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. The store itself is quite large and had many places where... More

I had the Turkey & Blue Heron Brie sandwich ("Delicious Traditional Brie, turkey and cranberry sauce") (around $7.00) with a glass of iced tea. The bread was fresh, the order come in a timely manner (it was mid afternoon on a weekday in early November), and it was pretty good. A little too much cranberry sauce -- too sweet --... More

Worth a visit as there is something for everyone. I found the staff friendly. I loved the idea that you could taste all the dips, jams and mustards before buying. Wine tasting is only $5 for 5 healthy tastes. Great petting zoo with wandering chickens and roosters. Nice ambiance!!

We saw the crowds at the other cheese factory, so bypassed it for this smaller delightful cheese company. The bonus was a wonderful opportunity to feed llama, goats, and sheep. We bought pet food inside the shop, tasted some ice cream, had coffee, and enjoyed the photo ops they set up in the garden, which even included a tractor. I... More

Interesting shopping, but more like a shopping stop then a cheese factory experience. We prefer our visit to Tillamook Creamery Down the street.

Stopped in to sample cheese and have a drink. No one working at cheese counter, but returned later to get some help. Server seemed bored. Enjoyed the cheese and bought some. All in all, a pretty good stop.
