Hilmar Cheese Factory

The Hilmar Cheese Factory is one of those places you just might drive past as you travel up or down the huge central valley of California. As I really enjoy factory tours, I stopped. I had my two boys with me, and they loved it! I mean they really loved to the tour and especially the samples. It was incredible to here them, a few months later. want to go here rather than a big amusement park in southern California. I think that may be due to all the cheese we consume. An I mean Consume.

The Hilmar Cheese Factory is Family Fun

Educational Tours Available

The tour now includes a chance to make ice cream that is very educational. For those of you who would like share the Hilmar experience, listen up, free educational tours. Tours for groups of 10 or more school children can tour for free. This includes the chaperones. What a wonderful deal as the educational effects of the hands on tour can be a lasting memory for a child. I encourage all schools to get the children over to the cheese factory and learn about how it all comes together. What an opportunity.

100 Percent Sustainable

The Hilmar Cheese Factory prides itself on the one hundred percent sustainability of their facility. Their practice of ecology is definitely one to use as a model.

The visitor center has a sandwich bar and deli that is really a gourmet experience. The number of choices and the brilliant friendly environment make The Hilmar Cheese Factory a great lunch stop for all of you working people. The entire facility is family friendly and that is such a plus.

Any way you slice it, melt it, or grate it, the Hilmar Cheese factory is is a must stop for our family.
