Breakfast at Hilmar

Bacon, eggs, and coffee were a great start to our Friends of Farmland event at Hilmar Cheese Company.  Friends and supporters of the California Farmland Trust enjoyed breakfast and good conversation, followed by an interesting tour of the Hilmar Cheese facility.

Attendees got to explore the interactive, hands-on exhibits about cows, dairies, and cheesemaking. Our tour host shared the cheese-making process from delivery of milk to storage and shipping of large blocks of cheese. Speaking of large, Hilmar Cheese produces the largest block of cheese that you can view in the world, at 640 lbs.

A big thank you to all our donors, supporters, and sponsors for attending this event. We look forward to seeing more of you at our next Friends of Farmland event.
