The Blue Heron is so much better than a well known cheese producer that is 1 mile north. The Blue Heron has friendly staff that are ready to help and serve you. Lots of free tastings, not only the cheese, but dips, sauces, etc. Not crowded as the competition and is soooooo much more personal.
Unlike the Tillamook Cheese Factory, I LOVED this place! It has a really cool atmosphere and a cute picnic area. I would definitely go here again! We did the wine tasting and left with a couple of bottles. Had we known how cool it was we would have brought a lunch and had a picnic there. Definitely worth checking out!

Great selection of reasonable priced wines and cheeses, taste are available of both. We went there and tasted wines bought 3 bottles and had an excellent sandwich from deli/cheese side.

Lovely place to visit - The wine and cheeses are wonderful. Family friendly - gift shop also has many local crafts for sale. They also offer shipping for those that are limited in space because of travel. It's also just a short drive to the oacean which is also lovely!
I try to avoid tourist traps by frequenting more intimate locations. The description of this place seemed to fit. We opted out of the Tillamook Cheese Factory tour hoping that I could recapture some of the charm and pride in their craft that the French are famous for. I've been to France. They don't treat their customers like they are... 更多
