BFM Vendor Spotlights: Purple Cow & Vintyr Wineries
Purple Cow Winery
Welcome to Purple Cow Vineyards where we strive to utilize uncommon varietals and techniques to give you a unique Oregon perspective on wine. We focus on educating ourselves and our customers in all areas of wine production whether grape growing or different methods of making wine to the history of the varietals we produce. Our mission is to endear our customers with a unique Oregon prospective, ongoing education and honored quality.
Purple Cow’s Oregon Vineyard is located on Highway 6 near both Banks and Forest Grove Oregon.
In August 2013 we moved our tasting room and offices to Newberg Oregon the Gateway to Oregon Wine Country. In the following months we moved all of our winery operations into the same facility.
It is our hope that you will take the time to explore some of the unique wines we offer and that you will enjoy our labor of love.
The dream of Vintyr started five years ago as a concept to provide the Northwest wine community with blends made up of old world single varietals and traditional winemaking methods with fruit from the Northwest.
In a market where large national wineries are purchasing the smaller regional vineyards that started the wine craze in the Willamette Valley or moving up from California to open up tasting rooms, we wanted to bring back that local boutique and artisanal brand…Where local people make great wines with Northwest fruit.
After launching Vintyr at the Newport Seafood and wine festival we finally had a proof of concept as people loved the wine and seemed to share our vision. With all 3 business partners being born and raised in Newberg, Or we are proud to say Vintyr is the only winery producing wine in downtown Newberg! Our roots are similar and so is our passion to produce high end wines.
We love wine, our community, and the people we get to share our passions with!!!
Gales Creek Garlic
Gordon and Candii Dana put a great deal of energy into the planting, growth, harvest and sale of their product.
All products are hand cultivated and brought to market with appreciation of the land, soil and conservation of resources which help to grow our products.
The mission of Three D Ranch is to provide high quality, affordable, certified organically grown garlic and assorted produce to our community in order to enrich the lives of our customers in a healthful and sustainable manner.
We value the opportunity to interact with customers at local farmers markets and those that contact us from other parts of the country who share our passion for garlic and organic produce cultivation.
We are a small family business dedicated to providing our customers with quality, local raw honey and bee products to improve every day health. We are based in Sherwood Oregon and have over 300 hives working to bring quality bee products from our hives straight to your home.
We work very hard at providing our customers with a variety of raw honey derived from different flower nectar’s and bee products that hold all their nutritional values. Our bees are also used to pollinate local farms, which is an essential part of the agricultural process of providing fresh quality fruits and vegetables. It is by this process that we are able to provide such a wide variety of raw honey which are all very unique in flavor
Our main focus this year has been to educate our customers on the health benefits on all of the different products we take off of the hives, which includes pollen, honey, propolis and most importantly royal jelly.
We enjoy being a part of the Beaverton Farmers Market family and look forward to seeing you all every Saturday.
Hoda’s Middle Eastern Cuisine
Hoda’s Middle Eastern Cuisine builds on a family tradition of delicious food and warm hospitality. Owner and culinary master, Hoda, is a second-generation Portland restaurateur who grew up in Beirut where she cultivated a palate for the highest quality, authentic Lebanese cooking.
It’s all about the flavor. Every recipe has been developed by Hoda herself, and she still does all the cooking using only the freshest organic, locally-sourced ingredients. Hoda’s passion for flavor and freshness make her a regular at the local farmer’s market where she scouts the ingredients for today’s dishes. She also uses only olive and canola oils—never butter or shortening.
With 15 years of catering experience, Hoda’s has provided a wide range of quality foods, including non-Middle Eastern dishes like Barbeque, Mexican, Northwest, New Orleans—whatever her customers desire.
