Annual Picnic at Goschie Farms – Aug 24th

Let’s HOP to it and save the date for the PCA’s annual summer potluck picnic! 

Hops in field
This year we are taking our picnic baskets on the road to Goschie Farms nestled in the Willamette Valley near Silverton. This century-old hop farm is home to 500 acres of sustainably grown hops and 600 acres of grass seed, corn, wheat and wine grapes. 

Our host will be Gayle Goschie, a fourth-generation family farmer. Gayle will guide us on a tour of the farm and hops harvest, including a look at hops on the drying floor. 85% of Goschie Farms hops are sold to the craft brewing industry and is the first hop farm to be certified “Salmon Safe.”


Please come ready to share your culinary talents by signing up to bring a side dish, salad, or dessert. The PCA Board will provide the meat and vegetarian options for the grill. This is a BYOB event! Please remember to let us know on our Facebook event what you are bringing!

Start Time: 3 p.m.

Location: Goschie Farms, 7365 Meridian Road, NE, Silverton, OR 97381

Postponed: Hands-on Candy Making with QUIN Candy

Making candy at QUINMay 10, 2014 | The PCA is disappointed to announce the temporary postponement of the Quin Candy Class this coming Saturday, May 10th. At the last minute, logistics for the site of the class proved to be challenging, so it was necessary to make this change.

Please know, to all those who signed up for the class with payment through PayPal, that full refunds are forthcoming. We are excited that this class will happen in the near future and that Jami Curl will coordinate with us as soon as she can. Stay tuned for news of upcoming programs with the PCA.
