The Morning Blend

Posted at 3:22 PM, Oct 12, 2021

Tillamook County Creamery Association is a paid sponsor of The Morning Blend.

Celebrate National Farmer’s Day by joining Food52 resident Samantha Seneviratne and Tillamook head cheese developer Steve Marko live from the Food52 kitchens in New York City to learn their tips for creating the ultimate fall grazing table and how you can give back to farmers in the process.

Samantha and Steve will highlight delicious Tillamook cheeses featured on the grazing table along with a delicious Fall Vegetable Tian made with Farmstyle Thick Cut Sharp Cheddar Shreds. Learn about the perfect pairings for other cheddars, including on-trend flavors and artisanal jams, pickles and date syrup.

All products featured on the fall grazing table will be available for purchase from the All For Farmers Market, with proceeds supporting the Brighter Future Fund, a microgrant program launched by Tillamook County Creamery Association and American Farmland Trust in 2020 support the future of farmers of all types, geographies and sizes, who have been impacted by COVID-19.
