Cheese aficionados welcome here.
Oregon cheeses are a true expression of the local terroir, or sense of place. The lush valleys, beautiful coastal regions, dense forests and rugged mountains all contribute to the undeniable quality of our cheese.
We are well known for award winning cheddar. Oregon is also home to nationally and internationally recognized artisan, farmstead and specialty cheese makers. There are scores of local cheeses available at grocery stores, farmers markets and specialty cheese stores.
Cheese is a nutrient-rich food loaded with good taste, protein and calcium. Reduced-fat and low fat cheeses are available, providing you with a wide variety of choices to suit your lifestyle.
