Popular Stayton business to hold anniversary celebration August 30

STAYTON, ORE. 23 JULY, 2014—Trexler Farm is celebrating the fifth year of its popular farm café with a community celebration on Saturday, August 30 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy a generous piece of cake baked by owner Sharlene Trexler. Sharlene recently reached another significant milestone: she catered the café’s 100th event, a 100th birthday party for Scio resident Gladys Campau.

“We’re celebrating this double milestone by thanking our many loyal customers,” said Sharlene. “Our success and growth have been the direct result of community support.”

Sharlene and her husband, Kirk Trexler, purchased the land in 1997, which was once home to the Old Mehama Fish Hatchery, one of Oregon’s first hatcheries built in the 1930s. In 2009, they converted one of the hatchery buildings to a bakery, which quickly turned into the farm café. Since then, the Trexlers have added a local products store, catering services, event and meeting venue, and the latest venture: a wine tasting barn.

“We have long relied on Trexler Farm to cater our special events,” said Gay Frank, events coordinator at Regis High School. “The food is always delicious and made with the freshest ingredients, just like the lunches served at the café. Sharlene has a special culinary touch.”

Trexler Farm Store Café is open for lunch Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Wine Barn is open Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Labor Day weekend. Tastings feature Honeywood Wines, Oregon’s longest-running winery, which is celebrating its 80th year in 2014. Locally produced jam, honey and gift baskets are also available.
