A visit to Face Rock Creamery


On our trip to Bandon for Staci’s birthday I was able to squeeze in a trip to the newly opened cheese factory that is at the site of the original Bandon cheese factory that was bought out by Tillamook cheese factory years ago. My grandparents used to take my sister and I to the original one for cheese curds.  Ahhh the memories of tasty cheddar curds.

Face rockThere are several varieties of cheese that they make that is available with samples to try before you purchase

  • Grand Opening Cheddar
  • “In Your Face” Spicy 3-Pepper Cheddar
  • Vampire Slayer Garlic Cheddar
  • Monterey Jack
  • “Face Rockn’ Jack” Pepper Jack,
  • “Black Jack” Monterey Jack with black olives and garlic
  • Fromage Blanc in various flavors

All three varieties of cheddar are also available as curds.  I picked up a bag of the 3-pepper and a bag of the garlic cheddar.  Both were delicious.  It is a great place to explore and taste test.  If you are in the area i recommend stopping to taste.  Their web site has a lot of information on the history of cheesemaking in the area
