First Open House of 2015
SPRING OPEN HOUSE
PACK SHED (BROWN BUILDING NEXT TO THE GROCERY)
SUNDAY, APRIL 12TH; 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Mark the start of the 2015 harvest season with us during our first open house of the year.
Spend the afternoon touring the farm, learning about the cooperative, perusing the regional foods in our on-farm grocery, and, of course, tasting what is grown and crafted at the co-op. Good walking shoes are a must. Park along the Christmas trees when you arrive and then come meet us in our pack shed. After the open house, take home a piece of the experience by grabbing dinner from our kitchen.
An Ol' Fashioned Easter Egg Hunt
EASTER EGG HUNT
SATURDAY, APRIL 4TH; 11:00 AM
Come find our farm fresh eggs hidden among the blossoming blueberry bushes and tall spring grasses during our ol’ fashioned Easter egg hunt. Bring your own basket to collect the many hard-boiled and dyed eggs, courtesy of our pastured chickens, that will be waiting for you in our fields. There will be sidewalk chalk drawing and Easter treats galore.
At long last, the Spring Equinox has arrived. Between all the seeding, cooking, and general scurrying about the farm today, the vibe at the co-op certainly reflects this new season feel. Jump into spring foods with us this weekend at OTC Grocery!

Certified Local Kickoff Party
SATURDAY, MARCH 14TH; 1:00-4:00 PM
Our newest offering of Oregon grown and crafted foods demands a party, so this is just what we're doing. Similar to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) subscription, our Certified Local Boxes are seasonal subscriptions representing a mix of foods and products. Contents are sourced from Producer Members of Our Table, packed at the co-op in Sherwood, and then delivered weekly to a neighborhood location for pick-up.
At Saturday's kickoff party, get the scoop on how the boxes work and taste some of what's included. We'll be taking sign-ups while Deck Family Farm grills up sliders.
SATURDAY, MARCH 7TH;
10:00 AM (SWEET HONEY)
3:00 PM (OAK KNOLL)
The best medicine is what you eat every day. Food is medicine, and most importantly, preventative medicine. Learn about the health benefits directly from the Sweet Honey farmers that grow, forage, and craft delicious, nutrient dense products that keep you healthy and vivacious.
Later in the afternoon, we'll move into a wine tasting with Oak Knoll. With a long family history in local wine making, Oak Knoll will present a mix of its Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir from Washington County.
Swap cookbooks this Thursday
We're kicking off March events at our grocery with our first co-op cookbook swap. Freshen up your cookbook library with a new book from your neighbor! Bring an old book and leave with a new one.
THURSDAY, MARCH 5TH; 4:00 PM
CASA BRUNO WINE TASTING
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH; 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
How will you show the love this Valentine's Day? How about through foods that taste even better than they look and dining experiences that last beyond the meal? We'll help you make this happen at our on-farm grocery this weekend with Alma chocolates, Grochau Cellars Rosé, and dinner and dessert for two. Before you take home all this goodness, taste some wine with us and Casa Bruno during the afternoon.
Welcoming summer at open house
A new harvest season means another open house. On Sunday, June 22nd from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, we'll be hosting our Summer Open House at the farm.
The return of blueberries, our new flower patch and the always evolving farm store will make for a visit filled with new things to see and taste.
Don't forget those good walking shoes for the farm. Unfortunately, our U-pick will not be open yet.
13390 SW Morgan Road, Sherwood, OR
We'll be meeting at our packing shed (the brown building to the left of the construction site). Please park along the Christmas trees when you arrive.
