Larder n (ˈlär-dər) — a place used to store food; a pantry; a supply of food

Here in the Portland Metro area, we are blessed with a climate that allows us to grow an incredible variety of fruits and vegetables. Although nothing beats fresh, in-season produce, preserving an abundant harvest for long-term storage can be a healthy and satisfying way to capture those bright seasonal flavors and prevent food waste.

Whether you shop the farmers market, forage in U-pick fields, tend a hearty home garden or have a single prolific fruit tree, that fresh produce can be transformed into something that will continue to nourish you throughout the year. The Lucky Larder can help with custom, small-batch fruit and vegetable preservation. You can take a group class, get one-on-one instruction, find individual support for your preservation projects and more!
