About Your Kitchen Garden

Started in 1991 by Sheldon and Carol Laeity, Your Kitchen Garden is one of our favorite farms. Located on 11 beautiful acres in Canby, Oregon, this farm is certified organic, and does everything the right way. Sometimes called "beyond organic", Sheldon and Carol use absolutely no sprays of any kind, ever. Even those allowed by the USDA under Organic certification guidelines. By purchasing produce grown at Your Kitchen Garden, you are practicing one of the very best methods of protecting the environment....sustainable, extrememly local produce. Their vegetables are picked and delivered within 24 hours of harvest, and therefore contain all the flavor and nutrients they would have as if you picked them from their own garden. Hand-picked with love and the utmost of care, Sheldon and Carol's vegetables are always some of the the best things we offer.‎ –source, Raw Raw Produce at City Market

About Deschutes Brewery

Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Deschutes Brewery is in the business of daring people to expect more from their beer. That's why we started off in 1988, on the banks of the Deschutes River here in Bend, Oregon, by selling Black Butte Porter at a time when others were sure a dark beer would never catch on. Our brewers love to push the envelope, especially if it makes someone nervous.  But for us, the highest praise is a raised glass and a toast of "Bravely Done!"  For more information about Deschutes Brewery and its courageously crafted beers, please visit
