The best way to connect with us is via Facebook, Evite and Meetup:
We do meet for potlucks, picnics, farm-to-table restaurant meals, educational programs, farm tours and farm events such as u-pick berries. Fill out the contact form at the bottom to be added to our Evite list.
Alternatively, we also have a largely silent, inactive Yahoo Group which has an archived file tab with a number of resources listed that include health practitioners, recipes and local food providers.
These are the dietary guidelines put forth by The Weston A. Price Foundation.
We have an Excel spreadsheet of local food and restaurants created by Renee Kimball. Please note that when you click on the link, the file will download to your computer. Notice the tabs at the bottom: Vocabulary, Food Sources, Chefs, Farm Supplies, Restaurants, Accommodation, and Education. Also note that we do continually discuss new resources in our community forums as they come up, so this spreadsheet may not have the very latest that we’ve discovered.
Here is a list of farmers markets in the city of Portland. Also, local is New Seasons, and a number of food cooperatives: The People’s Food Coop, The Alberta Coop, Know Thy Food Coop and Food Front Cooperative. Portland does have national grocery chains such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.
We recommend the Weston A. Price Foundation’s Find Real Food App. It is also available as a web based shopping guide. The Shopping Guide is organized into best, good and avoid categories. The criteria by which products are categorized, is published on the Foundation’s website. You can type in your zip code and find local resources.
Here is our list of restaurants in the city in Portland; always evolving!
Please see this Oregon overview on the Real Milk Campaign’s website. Raw cow’s milk is not availabe for retail sale in Oregon, however you may still purchase via herdshare and direct farm sales. Please see this overview document of raw milk options with pick up locations in Portland.
Some of us who live in Northeast or North Portland drive to Vancouver, Washington just across the Columbia river where raw cow’s milk is legal for retail sale and we purchase raw cow’s milk at Chuck’s. They offer Dungeness Valley.
You may find other options listed in the Real Milk Finder.
