Beaverton Farmers Market Vendor Spotlights for August 2019
Ken & June Hazelnuts (Visit Booth #101)
Walking through the farmers market you notice the faint aroma of sweet vanilla. The Melcher family has been in the business of growing hazelnuts for over 50 years. Ken & June Melcher began farming hazelnuts in 1957 on a 40-acre farm in their home town of St. Paul, Oregon. It was one of the largest filbert orchards in the Willamette Valley at the time.
As second-generation farmers, we now farm 300 acres of hazelnuts. In 2000, we expanded our business to include packaged, ready to eat hazelnuts, named after the original farmers, Ken and June Melcher. Ken & June’s product line includes raw, dry roasted, and roasted & salted hazelnuts. Their product line also includes a selection of chocolate coated hazelnuts; including Dark and Milk chocolate as well as a delicious Marion berry chocolate coated hazelnut.
As a family owned and operated small business, we take great pride in providing a quality, locally grown product for our customers to enjoy all year round.

Our internationally award-winning wines are unique and retain the characteristic of each fruit we use. Rhubarb, blackberry, raspberry and cherry wines are perennial favorites as well as our more traditional Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, and Chardonnay. We also make several rich and luxurious fruit port style dessert wines including our 96-point, double-gold awarded, Framboise Chocolate.
We have tasting rooms in two of the most beautiful areas of Oregon – Mount Hood and the Oregon Coast. Our main facility and winery is located along Hwy 26 as you’re heading up to Mt. Hood at 17020 Ruben Lane in Sandy, Oregon. Sandy is an excellent jumping off point to enjoy the great outdoors of the Mt Hood area. We also have a tasting room at 37 N. Edgewood in lively downtown Seaside, Oregon, just minutes from the beach.
When you need a serene moment, or a treat, stop in either location to taste our wines or call ahead and schedule a private tasting or tour of the winery with our warm, friendly staff. We also play host to lively events such as “Buy Local” bazaars, release parties, holiday teas, painting classes, and more. A trip to either one of the Buddha Kat tasting rooms is a must-have experience for all wine lovers!
