Among the many perks to moving into our new facility, one of the best is being able to offer tours to the public and share how we make the products you know and love. We began offering tours of our manufacturing process in June of this year.Â
We welcomed our 1,000th tour guest last week to our mill. June Grice from Scio, Oregon visited with her 55+ Club of the Albany First Church of God. In the four and a half months we have been giving tours, we have had people from 29 states and 5 countries, including Canada, China, Viet Nam, Mexico and England. Our youngest guest was 2 weeks old and our oldest was almost 91 years young.One guest told us that our tour was â€œmore interesting than the SPAM factory.â€ Well, we certainly hope so. Although, one does wonder what exactly is in SPAM and how do they get it into those little square tins??
If you havenâ€™t been by, we hope you will visit the next time youâ€™re in Portland, or just passing through. Tours are offered Monday through Friday from 10 am- 11 am. Our wonderful tour guide, Christie, will show you how we get products from farm to your table.
