Blue Mountain Station - Artisan Farmers Market

The Artisan Food Center was constructed through the summer of 2013

Blue Mountain Station offers you an exciting opportunity to be part of a unique business model that we hope will revolutionize the artisan food processing industry. This new 28 acre food park is located next to Highway 12 right outside Dayton, Washington. Infrastructure has been installed on the first 8 acres, and our first building, the Artisan Food Center, was completed in December of 2013. With this new business park, the Port of Columbia is creating a cluster of artisan food processors with the fun of food tourism at this site nestled in the scenic Walla Walla Valley.

Dayton is set at the foot of the Blue Mountains of Eastern Washington, nestled amongst the rolling fertile farmland and forested slopes of the scenic Touchet River Valley. A popular destination renowned for its abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, beautifully restored downtown, world class restaurants and stately historic homes, Dayton, and surrounding Columbia County, is also a region blessed by a historically rich culture of great food and wine.

Embracing this culture, the Port of Columbia is developing Blue Mountain Station, the world’s very first destination eco-food processing park dedicated to the recruitment and marketing of artisan food processors, primarily in the natural and organic sectors. Blue Mountain Station will be the anchor of a vertically integrated brand program beginning with the farmer and extending to the processor, the wholesaler, the retailer and, ultimately, to the quality-minded, health-conscious consumer. The park will blend sustainable, locally-produced agriculture with artisan food processing and food tourism in a setting in keeping with the environmental and architectural integrity of Dayton.

Farm to Table Dinner Hosted by Smith Hollow Farmstead

Farm to Table Dinner Hosted by Smith Hollow Farmstead

Chicken chasers, dirt diggers, plant pruners, and kid keepers.

That’s us!  Our names are Marcus and Lacey Mead and we’re the farmers here on Smith Hollow Farmstead.  Located in southeastern Washington, this small family farm is the product of years of scheming and scribbling in notebooks and many long days laboring away in the hot sun.  Long time farmers, gardeners, and livestock lovers, we are scaling up our backyard farming endeavors into a 16-acre farm project.

What our farm is…and isn’t.

If you drive by our farmstead as it is today, you may not be too impressed.  Our farm is not quite a Rockwell vision…yet.  If you’re a local, you may even recognize our place as ‘the old hog ranch’.  For our young family, this ‘old hog ranch’ is the canvas for building an environmentally and financially sustainable family farm that will host rows of green veggies, chickens plucking away on pasture, and three wild little kids learning the stuff of life.

The goal of our farm is to provide high quality produce and poultry products for our family and other families in the community, who like our own, consider knowledge of their food source high priority.  Our farm products will always be wholesome, nutritious, and grown sensibly and responsibly.  We aim to run our farm in a sustainable way by building a business that provides for our family and acts as steward to the land.

The Eclipse is Coming! The Eclipse is Coming!

"On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk. NASA created this website to provide a guide to this amazing event. Here you will find activities, events, broadcasts, and resources from NASA and our partners across the nation." Says Nasa.gov

Wenaha Gallery Features Pacific Northwest Potter Mary Briggs

Nature: In the Garden and the Ceramic Studio

Nature, for Briggs, is an element that factors throughout her day and week, whether she is in the studio, creating a body of work that, from start to finish, can take up to three months,  or out in the gardens of area residents, who commission her skills in this area.

“I work as a gardener for a week and then in my studio for a week,” Briggs explains, adding that she began gardening as a side job in graduate school, finding it a natural counterbalance to the intensity of studio work.

“It’s interesting to note that most potters are fabulous cooks and gardeners,” she observes. “It was not my experience that graphic designers were much interested in either of those. It was that sense of community that also attracted me to the field of ceramics.”

Briggs’s studio is based in the garage of her home, and has been renovated with added windows and insulation, additional electricity for her kiln, and ventilation. Because there is limited space for storing inventory, Briggs keeps her work moving, and a major means of doing this is through the Schaller Gallery of St. Joseph, Michigan, which represents some of the finest functional ceramic artists of the world. Most recently, gallery owner Anthony Schaller told Briggs to add Rebecca Sive — who may or may not be the Huffington Post writer who penned Every Day Is Election Day; Briggs isn’t sure  —  to her list of collectors.

“The great thing about my accessories is that they are all one of a kind. That makes it unique for the owner to have something no one else has, and it makes it fun for me to create without feeling like a factory.

“I really pay attention to details with each wallet, using my sewing machine like a drawing tool to draw stitch patterns and make designs with leather geometric shapes and colors.” For her wallets, Sneva chooses upholstery leather, which she describes as durable and soft, acquiring a beautiful patina over time. Hand-crafted art, Sneva believes, becomes a part of its owners’ lives, adding dimension and beauty to the day.
