Springtime Table

Local treasures for the season’s feasts

Anderson Ranches

Based in Brownsville, this fifth-generation grass-fed lamb operation raises its English-breed flock on open pastures. Certified Humane, the ranch undergoes rigorous, third-party auditing to guarantee the animals’ quality of life. The superior quality of the meat speaks for itself. www.oregonlamb.com 

Aloha From Oregon

From her commercial kitchen in Eugene, owner Lynn Jolly makes jellies, lots of them. Each contains the highest-quality ingredients packed with flavor. For a spicy kick, try the Mint Jalapeño Pepper Jelly with your Easter lamb, like the classic but with a hit of heat. www.alohafromoregon.com 

Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm & Vineyards

Make your Easter table more beautiful with breathtaking blooms from Oregon’s favorite flower celebration: the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival, March 19–May 2. Enjoy a two-mile hike on 80 colorful acres while sipping on a glass of Wooden Shoe wine. www.woodenshoe.com 

Carlton Farms

The longtime protein purveyor boasts some of the finest pork — and beef — in the Willamette Valley. For your springtime feast, serve Boneless Pork Chops, tender, juicy and easy to serve from the grill to hungry guests. For the smoky epicure, order a ham from the smokehouse. www.carltonfarms.com
