Locally Grown, Crafted & Produced
Locovore values, innovation and access to resources drives a thriving local foods and beverage industry in the Eugene - Springfield area. From soup to nuts, local food and beverage companies are pumping out nationally recognized and distributed products. Family farms sell direct to consumers at farmers' markets and roadside stands or through Community Supported Agricultural (CSA) programs.
Many goods can be ordered online, but the best way to discover the region's unique merchandise is in person at local markets, restaurants and store fronts. Some popular foodstuffs are only available direct or via local vendors. Below are some of our top producers of unique and very special products.
The nation's oldest commercial filbert (hazelnut) farm, Dorris Ranch is a popular location for walking, bird-watching and special events. The 4.5 miles (7.2 km) of gravel walking paths pass through old filbert orchards, a Douglas-fir forest and along the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. The living history interpretive village presents the opportunity to step into a day in the life of early settlers. The historic houses can be viewed from the outside and are opened only for scheduled school field trips.
Dorris Ranch is also the western-most trailhead for the Middle Fork Path, a 4 mile (6.4 km) paved path running along the Middle Fork of the Willamette and connects to Clearwater Park. There are multiple restrooms near the parking area.
