We’re very happy to announce that Chrissie Manion Zaerpoor of Kookoolan Farms in Yamhill will be a regular contributor to Willamette Living Magazine. Chrissie and her husband Koorosh have been farming in Oregon for just eight years, but have made amazing strides.
When you hear about the “new farmers” in Oregon who are breaking new ground (pun intended) in many areas, the person to think about is Chrissie. They do an amazing job, and never rest! There’s always something new and interesting going on with Kookoolan.
Chrissie asked us to share this press release with you, and we’re more than happy to do so. Look forward to more from Kookoolan in the pages of Willamette Living!
Kookoolan Farms was founded in October 2005, and became a licensed poultry processor on July 2, 2007. Since then we’ve been at the Hillsdale Farmer’s Market exclusively (2014 is our eighth season!), now as the Portland area’s longest-running pastured poultry provider. Kookoolan Farms chickens are not only pasture-raised, but also receive only a 100% certified organic and GMO-free cereal ration, and have been available through New Seasons Markets and a select very few other outlets since 2008. Kookoolan Farms produces just 400 chickens a week, just May through October each year.
In addition to pastured poultry, Kookoolan Farms has grown and thrived, now offering pastured heirloom pork, 100% grassfed beef, 100% grassfed lamb, eggs from pastured hens, vegetable CSA subscription, 100% certified organic Kombucha, and raw honey mead. The tasting room at Kookoolan Farms has over 150 different commercial meads for sale, with more than 30 open for tasting on any given day, the largest selection anywhere.
As an anniversary thank-you to Portland, Kookoolan Farms will be offering discounted 4-packs of their famous pasture-raised, jumbo whole chickens at the original 2007 price of only $3.75/lb! This extraordinary offer is only at the Hillsdale Farmer’s Market, only Sunday June 29 and Sunday July 13! www.hillsdalefarmersmarket.com, Sundays 10am to 2pm. First come first served, no reservations for special anniversary pricing!
