DBF and I are thinking, JUST thinking about possibly moving up to Portland in the next few years. I would love it! I love Portland. But I know I have it so good NT-wise here in CA's central valley - raw dairy is easy to get, I have a dozen good organic CSA's to choose from, and the local co-op has all the grass-fed meat and free-range organic eggs I need. What's the scoop up in Oregon?

I live just south of Portland, and just wanted to let you know that you should be able to get all your NT and local, organic food needs met pretty easily up here. Here is a site for Portland CSA's: <a href="http://www.pacsac.org" target="_blank">http://www.pacsac.org</a><br><br>
There are a multitude of farmer's markets as well, and since I am not that close and raise my own goods, I haven't been, but here is the link to one of the coop's in Portland.<a href="http://www.peoples.coop" target="_blank">http://www.peoples.coop</a><br><br>
We are about 40 miles south, so our milk source is probably about 30 minutes from Portland, but I am sure there are others. There is a couple who teach NT classes in the Portland area, this is there e-mail:<br><a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a><br><br>
I haven't checked out the weston price chapter info, but I am sure they would be able to help you source foods as well.<br><br>
Hope that helps.

Portland is sweet for real foods. It's such a foodie town. There is a very active local Native Nutrition Yahoo group that all sorts of WAPF food and health related topics come up on. <a href="http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/NN_Portland/" target="_blank">http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/NN_Portland/</a><br>
Local chapters are active too, with potlucks and playgroups and such.<br><br>
I wish I lived closer to attend activities, but I'm 2 hours away on the coast.

I'm in Portland. OG veges from local CSAs and MANY farmer's markets are easy finds. Good eggs or having your own chickens for eggs (up to 4 in the city) are also easy finds. Pastured meats and raw milk sources are not. We have several great local markets, but they still don't have great meat and only pastured milk.

Get in touch with your local WAPF chapter and they'll hook you up.<br><br>
Also, doesn't River Run Farm sell at the Portland Farmer's market? They are great farmers and pasture-finished.
