Hitting the Trails for Earth Day NVS to host inaugural Earth Day 5K & 10K Run on April 22 Neskowin Valley School will host its inaugural Earth Day 5K & 10K run on Sunday, April 22 with all proceeds going to support the school’s scholarship program. In celebration of Earth Day, the first 200 runners will receive a complimentary Cedar or Douglas Fir tree sapling. Other features include two beautiful courses to choose from — road or trail, professionally chip timed, finisher beer and lunch, and live entertainment. The 5K event will take runners west on Slab Creek Road after which participants will venture onto private trails. Runners competing in the 10K segment will head east on Slab Creek Road. NVS Head of School Kelly Ellis hailed the event as unique for the two diverse route options. “The trails have never been run before,” she said, noting organizers worked with local landowners to get permission. “They’re completely uncharted territory.” Officials hail participation in this event as a way community members can help remove the financial barrier for families wishing to send their children to the school, allowing local families to choose an independent education for their child. Historically, Neskowin Valley School provides more than $20,000 in scholarship support each year to families in need. In 2017, more than 40 percent of families received some level of scholarship support. “Our school is growing and our scholarship needs increase along with this growth,” says Ellis. “We are so fortunate that we are able to provide a diverse and

individualized educational program for students on the Oregon Coast. Living in a community with a high cost of living and incomparable salaries means that many families are unable to afford this type of education. The scholarship program bridges that gap and makes Neskowin Valley School an option for anyone seeking an alternative educational environment for their child.” The run has been organized by a group of devoted Neskowin Valley School parents that are committed to the school’s mission and are invested in supporting local education. Ellis says she hopes to attract 100 runners in the event’s first year, a number she hopes will grow in subsequent runnings of the event. “I am very excited to be planning this run. As an alumni and parent of students at the school, it makes me so happy to be raising money for our scholarship program so that other children can attend such a wonderful school,” says NVS parent Arica Venti. Food will be catered by Arica Venti and music provided by local Portland band, Elite Beat, a 6-piece ensemble based in the coastal region of the Pacific Northwest. Now in their 10th year as a musical collective, the group is hailed for cultivating “a unique strain of vital and original, live rhythm music.” The band has a school connection, too, as Geordie Thompson, a NVS alumni and son of NVS founders George and Margot Thompson, is amongst the band’s members.

TAPA announces its cast for ‘Moonglow’ The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts recently announced the cast of the upcoming comedy “Moonglow,” written by Kim Carney and directed by Ann Harper. “Moonglow” follows Maxine, a feisty, bitter Alzheimer victim who doesn’t want to move into a nursing facility. But when she meets Joe, a widower who shares her love for dance, her outlook begins to change. Although the two clash when lucid, their hazy memories overlap, and they begin an affair that rejuvenates and fulfills them. The play will answer the question whether these lovers — played simultaneously by an elderly twosome and a young, vivacious couple — can stay together despite their families’ wishes and their fading vitality. The cast of “Moonglow” includes

Chamber reconsiders fireworks display By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun The Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce took a second look at its earlier decision to not sponsor a fireworks display in conjunction with Clover’s Day, which is set for July 7 this year, during its monthly meeting on April 3.

In support of Schwend As the 2018 President of the Tillamook County Board of Realtors, it is my honor to announce our support for Adam Schwend, County Commissioner.  Adam was the 2017 President of our local board, and as such, we had the opportunity to view him up close; personally, and professionally.  His steadfastness, tireless efforts, listening skills and insights into our city and county workings, are impressive, as he expands connections and relationships.  He seems to have a unique ability to sustain an effort, even a vision, as he encourages others to participate, evaluate and discuss.  He assisted our Board in successfully increasing community involvement and advocacy related to important legislative issues, of which he has a particular expertise, that affect our lo-

cal coastal economy and livability. Adam led the charge in stopping the 1% fee on new construction, supported by our local board, builders and developers, given we see strides and progress in identifying qualified buyers dedicated to building affordable, work force and other much needed housing.  Long before I got to know Adam well, he volunteered for a last minute “call for help” for a special event I was coordinating in the Downtown, later becoming a sponsor.  His interest and activities seem to all be along those lines, a man driven to be of service, always with the highest degree of integrity, dedication and capacity, for whom I am pleased to also personally endorse.   Valerie Schumann  Garibaldi Please send Letters to the Editor via e-mail: tim@pacificcitysun.com.

news&community Neskowin Valley School amongst recepients of PUD Community Grants The Tillamook PUD Board of Directors recently awarded 13 non-profit organizations in Tillamook County funding through the 2018 Tillamook PUD Community Support Grant Program. Organizations receiving awards included Neskowin Valley School, which received an award that will finance the installation of a ductless heat pump. “We’re super excited to receive funding from (Tillamook) PUD for the second year in a row,” said Kelly Ellis, NVS head of school, who added that the new heating system will be installed in the school’s Fireside Room, which is currenlty heated by a fireplace and electric heaters. “It will be a much more efficient heating system,” she said. Other organizations throughout the county receiving awards for their community projects were Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, for new lighting; Camp Makuala, to update camp electrical needs and for LED lighting; Meals for Seniors, Inc., to replace a commercial water heater; Tillamook Habitat for Humanity, for the Ramps & Rails program; Food Roots, for commercial energy efficient appliances; Oceanside Neighborhood Association Community Advisory Committee, for the Oceanside beach access site survey and permit procurement; Oregon Coast Futbol Club, for a new soccer field; Tillamook Gun Club, for LED range lights; Tillamook Senior Citizens Club, for two ADA fire doors and a deck ramp; Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce, to upgrade lighting; St. Mary’s by the Sea, for construction of a permanent storage facility; and Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative, for electrical work in the historic coast guard boathouse. Tillamook PUD developed the community support grant program to assist local non-profit organizations in funding projects designed to promote economic growth in Tillamook County. In evaluating and selecting projects for funding, the Board focuses on enhancement of economic development and community livability. For the past 17 years, the Board has budgeted funds towards this program and over the years, response from the community has been very positive. In many cases, recipients have reported that PUD grant funds were an essential factor in the completion of their project.

A Birds and Blooms tour through the Two Rivers area and an Evening Owling adventure complete the list of the days field trips. Leila Bowen, volunteer coordinator for U.S. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife who also serves on the Birding and Blues board said about the field trips, “The Oregon coast just has an array of habitats that are great for a number of different types of species.” Bowen went on to explain that two of the field trips, Trail of Two Rivers and Sitka on the Edge offer a unique opportunity to explore land that is not usually open to the public. The Two Rivers field trip will offer the “possibility to see species that wouldn’t (be seen) in other areas,” said Bowen. “Just because there’s not a lot of human footprint there.” And of the Sitka field trip, Bowen explained, “That will be an exciting area...(it’s) not quite open to the public yet. There’s an array of habitat....coastal forest as well as marshy tidal area which should give an interesting array of habitat for a number of species of birds through the walk.” A Live Birds of Prey presentation and a blues concert by Karen Lovely round out the day’s activities. Sunday, April 22 dawns early with a Kayak Tour guided by Nestucca Adventures. Register directly for this tour by calling Nestucca Adventures at 503-965-0060. “They (boat tours) give you a different perspective because all of our field trips except those are on land,” Hoffman shared. “It makes the whole experience richer.” Two presentations take place on Sunday. Return of the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly describes the efforts to establish a new population of the butterflies at the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The Rice is Nice talk looks into the potential for rice in ways that view a “green” rice connection with waterbirds of all sorts. Repeats of four field trips offer attendees a second chance to participate in Salty Seabirds, Trail of Two Rivers, Swamp Stomp, and Sedge on the Edge. As well, a Coastal Woodslands Walk will also be offered – an easy one-and-a-half mile walk in a nearby coastal woodland. For a full description of events and to register, visit birdingandblues.org.

Misty Wharton outlines NVES expansion bond By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

your next County Commissioner.

estucca Valley School District superintendent Misty Wharton shared her thoughts on the need for an elementary school expansion on Tuesday, April 3 during the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce’s monthly meeting at Kiawanda Community Center. The district has put a $25.7 general obligation bond on the May ballot — at an expected cost to taxpayers of an additional $0.99 per $1,000 of assessed value — that would enlarge the elementary school from its current 27,000 square foot footprint to 48,000 square feet. It’s extra elbow room that is sorely needed, Wharton said. Noting that when facing a nearly $1.5 million shortfall in 2007, the district downsized from three campuses to two, she said that the students and staff have been squeezed into an area less than ideal. The net result, she said, has been that the high school, which absorbed 7th- and 8th-grade students, has been operated in a way it was never designed. And the same goes for the elementary school, where sixth-grade students have been packed in. To rectify this, the NVSD Board of Directors embarked on a facility study led by the DLR Group and facilitated by a 26-member community panel. “We went from big ideas, small ideas, and looking at the future,” Wharton said. “(We looked) at the physical condition of all the buildings (and) how the buildings are used.” In the end, Wharton said, it was decided that the district would pursue

Looking to take a trip to the “dark” side? How about with a little humor thrown in? All that and more promises to be a part of the entertainment when Nestucca Jr.-Sr. High School hosts its 2018 Spring Musical offering, “The Addams Family – A New Musical Comedy,” hits the stage April 25, 27 and 28 at Nelson-Pimentel Stage. Continuing its tradition of producing a full-scale musical with orchestra every year since 1974, Nestucca is taking a little turn towards something different from the well-loved classics. “The Addams Family” premiered on Broadway in 2010, running for nearly two years. This humorous show is set in their mansion in Central Park, NYC. This hilariously off-kilter family presents a coming-of-age story about Wednesday, who has grown up and found love. Show producers say they don’t want to give too much away, but attendees will see all the familiar characters, plus a few new ones. The production is cast from veteran performers, as well as those entirely new to the stage. It draws from the entire Nestucca Valley School District as elementary, junior high and senior high school students are represented. Cast members include Ian Anderson as Gomez, Aryanna Maier as Morticia, Kaitlyn Osias as Wednesday, Jace Owens as Pugsley, Isaac Barnes as Uncle Fester, Lexi Johnston as Grandma, and Henry Cook as Lurch. The actors portraying Cousin Itt and Thing are still a mystery.

New characters to the story include the Beineke family: Mariah Hallock as Alice, Elias Sifford as Mal, and Quin Elliott as Lucas. Addams Family ancestors from many historical eras are played by Nina Hernandez, Madison Johnson, Amy Moore, Raven Richardson, Allison Thayer, Breanna Weltz, and Kayla Weltz. Brenna Sage returns to her hometown to direct — having performed in Nestucca’s musicals when she was a student. She also brings theatrical experience from Portland and New York City, where she worked with student groups, from ages 6 to 18, in productions of Shakespeare, original student-written scripts, and classic musical theater. She is assisted by an experienced production team including Mari Turpen (Assistant Director), Heidi Daggett (Rehearsal and Production Pianist), and Jacob Straessle (Stage Manager and Technical Director). Kathleen Serven is directing the orchestra. Production dates are Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28, at 7 p.m. on the Nelson-Pimentel Stage at Nestucca Jr.-Sr. High School. Tickets are $10 for reserved seating, and $8 for general admission. There is a special senior citizen matinee on Wednesday, April 25 at 11 a.m. Tickets for this performance are $5, and an optional lunch served at 10 a.m. is $4. Officials ask that those wanting to have the senior lunch in the cafeteria make a reservation in advance. Tickets are now on sale at 503-392-3194, ext. 230.

Tillamook Regional Medical Center named as 2018 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital For the second year in a row, Adventist Health Tillamook Regional Medical Center has been named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “It is extremely gratifying to receive this distinction again,” said David Butler, president and CEO. “This achievement reflects our daily commitment to providing the best health care possible to our community. This would not be possible without our wonderful staff who carry out our mission and uplift our values — respect, integrity, compassion and excellence — in each interaction.” iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health recognize the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the nation annually based upon eight pillars of hospital strength: inpatient share ranking, outpatient share ranking, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives and financial stability. The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America. Critical

Access Hospital is a federal designation for some hospitals providing 24-hour essential services to the rural communities they serve. A Critical Access Hospital must be 35 miles or more from another hospital, have no more than 25 acute care beds and have an average length of acute care stay of 96 hours or less. As of January 2018, there are 1,343 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States and 25 in Oregon. The other three Oregon hospitals on the Top 100 list for 2018 are in Eastern Oregon: Wallowa Memorial Hospital, Saint Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City and Grande Ronde Hospital in LaGrande. “We are privileged to provide healthcare in the communities we serve, and we are proud of this honor,” said Butler. “It serves as recognition of our daily commitment to our mission: Living God’s love by providing health, wholeness and hope.” To see the list of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and more information about the study, visit www.iVantageINDEX.com.

Planning Commission recommends reconsidering zoning change By TIM HRSCH of the Sun Citing a concern over supporting a legislative change not mandated by the state that carries with it significant public opposition, the Tillamook County Planning Commission unanimously approved a motion on April 12 to recommend approval of changes to the Pacific City-Woods Community Plan and its associated zoning code amendments with one important exception — the advisory group recommended that commissioners, when they discuss the matter during public hearings on May 2 and 9, send the changes affecting high density areas of Pacific City (PCW-R3) back to the Department of Community Development and the Pacific CityWoods Citizen Advisory Committee for further review. “I don’t have too much trouble making a quasi-judicial decision against the majority, but this is a legislative decision that’s not being made to meet a change in state requirements — we’re not being directed to make this legislative change in order to fix the ordinance,” said Planning Commissioner Don LaFrance. “I’m wrestling with making a decision with so much opposition to a legislative change where I believe legislation — when it’s not being required by a higher authority at the state — should represent at least 50-50, if not a majority.” The opposition LaFrance referred to included both a 93-30 vote taken on Feb. 3 by the CAC to not support the revisions and to public comment taken during the Planning Commission hearing. The debate, both during Planning Commissioner deliberation and during nearly an hour’s worth of public comment, centered around the issue of increased change in the R3 area. As the draft now stands, those changes would include lifting the requirement for an additional 2,000 square feet of land for each additional unit on a lot as well as relaxing restrictions on the number of multi-family units that could be constructed on a site. In the proposed changes, one- to eight-family dwellings — including townhouses, rowhouses, apartments and condominiums — would be a use permitted outright. Currently, uses permitted outright are limited to a four-family dwelling

in R3-zoned property. The proposed R3 setback changes would also eliminate the requirement for 15-foot front setbacks and 20-foot rear setbacks for multi-family developments and instead require a front and rear combination setback of 30 feet with neither the front or rear setback being less than 10 feet. Community Development staff and the majority of members of the CAC’s Planning Review Committee have hailed the changes as a way to encourage the development of multi-family housing with the hope that it would encourage more workforce housing. Prior to the Planning Commissioners’ vote, members did discuss making some changes including eliminating the increase in the number of units allowed on a R3 lot as an outright use. However, they also expressed concern over tweaking the community plan and its associated code changes too quickly given that so much time was given to crafting them. During public comment by both community members and members of the CAC’s Community Plan Review Committee held before deliberation by Planning Commissioners, opinions ranged from opposition to support of the revisions. Common themes in those opposed included concern over the fact that there is nothing in the changes that would necessitate any multi-family development and the belief that higher density development would exacerbate the infrastructure, parking and congestion problems already present in the area. “This change in zoning has the potential to ruin neighborhoods in our community and destroy the village atmosphere of our town that we all treasure,” said Bud Miller, a member of the Planning Review Committee who opposes the relaxing of standards in high density areas. “This proposal and these zoning changes will not cause one door of workforce housing,” added Pacific City resident Ken Moffett. “Higher density doesn’t cause cheaper housing, it causes cheaper cost to a developer. It won’t happen here. “To say that by magically increasing density is going to cause things to be cheaper, it won’t. If I can rent my place for $1,000 per weekend, I’m not going to rent it for $1,000 a month. I wish

there was lots of affordable housing here. “I wish my son could come back here from university to buy a house without having to attain a six-figure income first, but he can’t. I’m sensitive to the cause, (but) trying to suggest this will cause workforce housing is ridiculous.” Those in support, meanwhile, said that relaxed standards are crucial to making development of workforce housing pencil out. Planning Review Committee member Mary Jones said that, under current standards, developers aren’t erecting one- to four-unit housing units because it’s not feasible to do. “Right now, the way our zoning is written, the growth is occurring in vacation homes and single-family dwellings because it’s not feasible to do the multi-family,” she said. “So, therefore, all the growth is in the vacation homes.” She also explained the importance of removing the barrier of the conditional use process, which the proposed changes would do by making more units an outright use. “(The) conditional use process is fairly onerous,” she said. “In an area where it’s not allowed outright, it’s just really difficult. You don’t want to buy a piece of property if you’re not sure if you can afford to do what you need to do with it. “The idea is, from my perspective, is what is needed is a smaller unit that’s placed where the server or the manager or whoever is coming to town for a job doesn’t need a 3,000 square foot house.” Another voice in support came from Pacific City resident Mark Kirkendall. “I’m in support of the motion for affordable housing,” he said. “I think that (the proposal) opens up the opportunity for affordable housing. I think that the developers here have done a stellar job of blending the homes to the community and shaping the community in such a way that is unique, that is special to our area. I think we need to support growth in a professional way that blends the community.” Additional public comment will be taken by the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners when they take up the matter on May 1, 2 p.m, at Tillamook County Courthouse.

Partners for Rural Innovation awarded $45,000 from Business Oregon Business Oregon, the state’s economic development organization, recently announced that Partners for Rural Innovation of Tillamook County has been awarded $45,000 from the biennium fund for their grant application to the Rural Opportunity Initiative. It was one of 11 grant applications awarded throughout the state from a pool of 41 proposals.  The funding will be used for three programs: relaunching the Recipe to Market classes conducted by Oregon State University Extension and Small Business Development Center; creating a Tillamook County brand or co-brand of foods to enhance marketing efforts; and a feasibility study on the creation of a food hub to improve distribution of foods, such as fish, meat and produce, between local and regional buyers and sellers.   Partners for Rural Innovation include Visit Tillamook Coast (which was the primary application organization),

Small Business Development Center, Economic Development Council, Oregon State University Extension, Tillamook Bay Community College, and Oregon State University Open Campus. All are co-located in the new Partners for Rural Innovation building in Tillamook on Third Street. In early 2017, the Partners produced an extensive database of food and agricultural businesses developing locally sourced products. At the same time, Visit Tillamook Coast hosted a Travel Oregon Rural Tourism Studio Workshop for culinary and agritourism planning. Information gained from both of these efforts inspired ideas for community development projects. “The Business Oregon Rural Opportunity Initiative was an opportunity to address needs in the food and agricultural community,” said Nan Devlin, tourism director for Visit Tillamook Coast and in-

terim director for the Economic Development Council. “With the funding we can lay groundwork for business growth and entrepreneurship.” “This is a story of partnership and collaboration among key organizations to further the economic growth of businesses in the county,” said Ross Tomlin, president of Tillamook Bay Community College. “Business Oregon’s confidence in our commitment to local culture is what we hoped to accomplish by creating the Partners for Rural Innovation.” Over the next two years, Partners for Rural Innovation will work with various organizations on the projects, including Food Roots, Travel Oregon, Rural Development Initiative’s Pasos al Exito program, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, and Port of Garibaldi.

Beaches provided the main trails for settlers By SALLY RISSEL for the Sun Elk made the first trails from the interior valleys to the Oregon Coast. Both elk and Native Americans made these trails their own, but they were barely usable for pack horses and early settlers. After reaching the coast, most travelers used the beaches. The beach trails in South Tillamook County began south of Lookout Point and followed the beach to the Nestucca River, bypassing Sand Lake. Early travelers crossed the area and found only Indian villages, mainly at Pacific City and at

the outlet of the Salmon River. Beginning at the north end of Tierra del Mar, the south-bound traveler found an excellent beach as far as Cape Kiwanda, which was easy to bypass over the dunes. They then could travel along three miles of shore to the mouth of the Nestucca River where Indians could provide canoes for crossing. Several miles of beach led to Cascade Head and a difficult steep trail to the Salmon River. The Salmon River was possible to cross at low tide, but again, Indians often helped them cross. South of the Salmon River was a short beach, a climb over a hill and a 15 mile beach walk to the Siletz River.

Pelican Brewing Company welcomes the return of the sun with one of its own bright stars, Citricumulus Citrus Pale Ale. The fruity brew returns this month to Pelican’s seasonal lineup — available now for the first time in six-packs, in 22-ounce bottles and on-tap at Pelican brewpubs.   Citricumulus, which was born into Pelican lineage as one of the brewery’s small batch Lone Pelican beers, has parlayed its reputation for a light, crisp, fruity character into a special spot in the brewery’s annual lineup. The former Lone Pelican now takes its place among other annual Pelican seasonals like Dirty Bird Northwest IPA, Sun Flare Dry-hopped Pale Ale and Bad Santa Cascadian Dark Ale to name a few brews that fellow fanatics have come to count on every year.  According to the Pelican, Citricumulus takes its inspiration from the high-flying clouds of a summer day. Officials say brewers imagined the perfect beer for a lazy afternoon spent gazing at the sky and started with a crisp, fruity Belgian-style pale ale. The beer features an aromatic, citrusy orange peel to create an elevated sensory experience. “Pelican brewers love to explore ‘Lone Pelicans’ that offer intriguing techniques and ingredients that are not well-represented in the market place — Citricumulus is one of those but it has become so popular as a seasonal brew that we just had to give it a place of honor on the annual lineup,” says Darron Welch, founding brewmaster at Pelican Brewing Company. “Our take on a Citrus Pale Ale explores a whole realm of sensory possibilities that are perfect for drinking on a sunny day at the beach.” Like all Pelican beers, Citricumulus is born at the beach by a team of award-winning craft beer makers known for brewing styles of beer that they themselves love to drink. Pelican Brewing Company was founded in 1996 by Jeff Schons and Mary Jones in Pacific City with Oregon’s only oceanfront brewpub. Celebrating its 21st year, the Courtesy photo brewing company has created beers like CITRICUMULUS CITRUS PALE ALE, originally a Pelican BrewKiwanda Cream Ale, India Pelican Ale, ery Lone Star brew, has been added to the Pelican’s annual seaMacPelican’s Scottish Ale, Tsunami Stout sonal rotation.

A Taste of Home

Menefee’s Feed Wagon is building reputation for bountiful breakfasts, large lunches By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

W

hat’s better than a homecooked meal? How about a feast with some of your friendly neighbors? Throw in a comfortable setting and heaping helpings and you must be describing Menefee’s Feed Wagon. Operated by Mark and Lisa Menefee, together with their daughter Chantelle Braun, the Feed Wagon just recently celebrated its first year in operation. “We had a good first year,” Lisa told the Sun. “People have come from all over the world.” Lisa says the variety of visitors owes greatly to its location — right on Highway 101 in downtown Cloverdale. And the service, food and comfortable ambiance keeps people coming back. Open daily for breakfast and lunch every day except Sunday, the café is known for its bountiful breakfasts and large lunches. Morning favorites include their One-Pound Breakfast Burrito and their Biscuits & Gravy, but the breakfast menu also includes such standbys as a Farmers Breakfast, buttermilk pancakes, French toast and a variety of egg dishes. “We have good quality, homestyle food,” Lisa says. “We have

huge servings. You get your money’s worth.” Their midday offerings also have been a hit. While their hamburgers, fish ‘n chips and pulled pork sandwich have proved to be the most popular, the restaurant also serves up classic lunches like a chicken salad sandwich, a BLT, popcorn chicken, soup, salad and more. They also have gluten-free, organic, vegan and vegetarian options on their menu. The eatery also offers espresso, specialty coffee drinks and infused teas as well as a drive-thru service. As well, they sell locally-grown food including eggs from the Trent Family Farm, honey from Pure Grace Farm and cheese from Nestucca Bay Creamery. And they’re always looking for more. “If anyone has local products, we’re happy to talk to them about making it available to tourists and the community,” says Lisa. “It’s a place where you can just make yourself at home,” she said. “For locals, this is their coffee shop.” Menefee’s Feed Wagon is located at 34445 Highway 101 S., Cloverdale. For more information or to get your to-go order started, call 971-257-0099. More details and updates on restaurant happenings can be found by following them on Facebook.
