  •  My sister lived on the Alsea, where (10+ / 0-)

    her son was born, 1977.  It was an overgrown little place with a few families living there.  I think they called it the "Strawberry Farm".

    In her memory, my family and I would like to sponsor a goat.  I will put $60 in the mail to you on Friday.

    To save you shipping cost when the cheese is available, perhaps we could meet at a Portland farmers' market, or a Koscadia meetup.

    Do you ever sell at Hillsdale Farmers Market, in SW Portland?

    The Hillsdale Farmers' Market is a year-round market running weekly from the first Sunday in May through the Sunday before Thanksgiving and twice monthly December through April.

    Market Hours - Sunday 10am-2pm

    Market Now Running Weekly Through November 24, 2013

    I would be interested to know which other Portland-area markets you will be at.  Possibly there would be a chance for a meetup.

    •  I can't get into Hillsdale (6+ / 0-)

      But my good friend is a vendor there selling Buffalo, Yak, Elk, beef, pork, chicken, turkeys, duck eggs, goose eggs, turkey eggs and chicken eggs.  They are Pine Mountain.  Very very high quality protein source, grass fed, raised with love and respect.

      I'm going to ask a few of my old timer Alsean friends about the "Strawberry Farm".  Oddly enough, we are the "Goat Farm" and just roll into town and ask, everyone knows where it is.

      Yes, bringing cheese directly to you is very doable.  Thanks so much, in honor of your sister.

        It was some miles up from Waldport.  There were a couple of houses and some farm buildings on the place.  The house she lived in was quite close to the highway, on the south side, and literally half-covered in blackberry vines over the roof.  It was a short walk to the river, where they had a sweat lodge set up.

        I think her partner from those days still lives in the area; you may even know him!
