When a dozen California dairy farmers joined together to found Hilmar Cheese Company in 1984, they were enthusiastic because their Jersey cows were particularly good at producing high-protein milk, ideal for making cheese. The dairymen worked hard, the cows worked hard, and the cheesemakers worked hard as the business grew. Today, Hilmar Cheese Company products are known around the world for excellent quality, great taste and superior functionality. State of the art production facilities enable us to produce a variety of high quality cheese while meeting diverse customer specifications.
Our cheesemakers will explain how fresh milk is turned into tasty Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese in our "Cheese Theatre." Explore our interactive exhibits about agriculture, the dairy industry and cheesemaking. Meet "Buttercup," dress as a cheesemaker and "mix a meal" for a cow in our miniature mixer wagon. See modern technology package 500-pound barrels and 640-pound blocks of cheese!
