King Estate Victory was a Victory for Oregon Sustainable Food and Wine
This year King Estate Winery, who orders most of their meats from us, faced a challenge (denial of permit) to their restaurant's operation. As a strong advocate of local sustainable agriculture, and with a huge amount of local support, they took a major initiative at the Oregon legislature to protect like businesses across Oregon. “As a result”, writes Ed King, “we were not only able to protect our restaurant but we changed the law for the benefit of all wineries, and even paved the way for a few others in the state to establish their own full service restaurants. It was a profound success that began with a collective effort to speak up for common sense, for the future, and for responsible job creation.” Grats !
