Dairy cooperative, Tillamook, has been farmer-owned and farmer-led since 1909. To tell this story, we drove west from Portland, to lush and blustery Tillamook County, Oregon. We followed the farmers into their homes, trucks, fields – through herds of cows and mounds of poop – and even into the company board room, to interview and photograph the guys and gals behind the best damn dairy on the west coast (and arguably, on earth). 

We came away with a newfound respect for farmers – and seven months of editorial content for the brand's newsletter and web site.
