This morning we are off to Tillamook.
First Stop the Cheese Factory.
The story of the ‘Morning Star Logo’
In 1855, Tillamook pioneers launched their own ship, Morning Star of Tillamook. It was used to help establish a market in Portland and Astoria for goods from Tillamook County, Including butter. In 1966, TCCA redesigned its packaging to incorporate a rendition of the Morning Star. This made it easier for customers to identify genuine Tillamook cheese. Today, the Morning Star logo is tll on the package and a replica stands in the front of the plant.
Production line busy cutting the cheese and vacuum sealing.
We sampled cheese then had lunch at the factory.
Next stop the Air Museum.
