It’s Rodeo Time in St. Paul!

30 Jun

It’s that time of year when our small town of a little under 400 people comes alive with over 50,000 folks. They come for the show, the bulls, the cold beer, the fireworks and friends, and a hell of a good time.  Because in St. Paul, we work hard so we can play hard! 

It’s a tradition that has gone on for 82 years and as the third generation of my family to call St. Paul home, it’s hard for me to even express the pride I feel to be from this small dusty farm town. It’s really a no where place, and except one weekend a year…that’s how we like it.  I have friends that have made this their family tradition too.  And every year getting together is just a piece of what keeps this legacy alive. Because that’s how it works, we welcome you in and it tends to get under your skin, it becomes a place and a time that is hard to live without.  I hear other places celebrate the 4th of July, but it’s hard to imagine a place with more tradition and more passion for freedom than our little town of St. Paul, Oregon. 

So dust off those cowboy boots, or better yet leave the dust on; we don’t care either way! And head on out to St. Paul, where you’ll get to experience a little of the wild west, and a little (or a lot) of a wild time. 

What are some of your best rodeo traditions, stories or memories? After 82 years I know there are some great ones out there!

Memorial Day 2017

29 May

While we are off BBQing, camping, or doing yard work this weekend it’s easy to forget why we get to take a day to relax.  But truly, take a moment today to appreciate those who not only sacrificed, but gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. 


Home of the free, because of the brave. We thank you all!  Happy Memorial Day!

The Sun is Out!!! (For One Day Only)

21 Apr

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well this one is also worth a thousand things we farmers need to get done today. 

One day of sunshine is all we get…so it’s off the the farming races here in Oregon!  Happy Friday!
