Silver Falls Bread Company

A place to find good bread is sometimes hard to find. The type of bread that is made from quality ingredients and may remind you of what your grandma used to bake. And, perhaps baking isn’t your specialty. So, it’s hard to find a good slice of sourdough when you’d like one. Luckily, there is the Silver Falls Bread Company in Silverton! If you’re in the mood for some traditional and darn good-tasting bread, then this place is the ticket.

Silver Falls Bread Company

Dan Literas, of Silver Falls Bread Company, is passionate about making bread and its history. It’s about selecting healthy and organic ingredients and also embracing the process of measuring the dough by hand. There is usually a selection of fresh bread to choose from, but it’s best to order in advance. That way, you can ensure the bread you want is there. This bread is so good, that it usually runs out. When the Farmer’s Market is going, and they are there, you’re lucky to find a loaf of bread by 11:00 am that morning. No worries though, there’s an online ordering service on their website, and the place is located right in the area next to Ace Hardware and the Gear-Up coffee shop. When it comes down to it, the simplest bread prepared in the simplest way just what’s needed for the table.

At BST Realty LLC, we love supporting local businesses. After all, we are a local business, and it only makes sense to support one another. We are so thankful for our community and all the amazing things it has to offer. In a way, it’s like “breaking bread” with our community. Sharing with one another, and lifting each other up. That’s why we believe in providing simply the best service. It includes the type of service we provide to our clients, and also how we serve our community by in large. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, we’re here to help you at every step in the journey, because we simply love helping people. It’s our “bread and butter,” but when you’re doing great work you believe in, it’s also, “the greatest thing since sliced bread.”

It’s Pumpkin Time!

The month of October makes you not only think about getting that pumpkin spice latte, but of course, some pumpkins to decorate your home! In Oregon, we have so many local pumpkin patches to choose from. When it’s pumpkin time, it’s sometimes difficult to decide. From decorative gourds to pumpkins that weigh over 40 lbs, there’s tons of variety. Pumpkins are fun to carve or just leave how they are up until Thanksgiving arrives. Sometimes it’s even fun to take the seeds out and bake them in the oven to eat. The color orange just seems to say “fall is here.” What types of autumn decorations do use around your home?

Where’s your perfect pumpkin?

If you’re thinking of an all-day family affair, then Bauman’s Farm and Garden may be just the place you’re looking for. They have an assortment of different activities for the Harvest Festival including a petting zoo, bug train, hayride, and more. If you’re looking for a smaller venue, then venturing to Fordyce Farm is the perfect place to visit for pumpkins. You can also peruse the store for some delicious baked goods and produce. Or, there’s always the tucked-away farm stands that grace our lovely Willamette Valley landscape. The Red Wagon Farm is a great place to pick up some pumpkins as well as your favorite lavender-scented items.

We are so thankful to be a part of the Willamette Valley, and this October we’re also having our annual Photo Contest for Best Costume! So, make sure you either send us a photo of your best costume, or we’ll be looking for you on October 31 from 4 – 6pm at the Silverton Office for the Goblin Walk!
