The spirit of Christmas is not lost; in fact, it thrives at Mitchell Christmas Tree Farm. Chad and Lisa—with their three boys in tow—run a fully functioning tree farm that grows impressive firs for the holiday season. They also make handmade wreaths and delight guests with weekend hayrides. In the true spirit of giving, visitors can enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and coffee while they are cutting their own tree or picking up a yuletide shrubbery.

Since the 1890s, the Dinihanian farmer family has nourished Portland-area families with produce bereft of genetically modified seed, pesticide, or chemical fertilizer. This Groupon provides a preview of the farm’s Community Supported Agriculture program, in which customers receive a share of the harvest by supplying two aliment-stuffed boxes. Full of crops harvested in the same week, the half-share box contains enough produce to sustain two people and the full share best suits a family of four or a peckish elephant. While the inventory shifts depending on season, availability, and tree mood, past boxes have included walla walla onions, squash, strawberries, bok choy, and peaches. The farmers tuck handy recipe sheets into each box to guide share-holders through cooking with unfamiliar edibles.

It's not every day that online shopping includes as much personal attention as you get from Stoneside Blinds. In most areas, their online-shopping process starts off with a free house call from a designer, who helps clients pick out materials and styles for their window dressing. Once the client has made their choices, the company will send out teams to measure the window frames and, later, install the final product for a flat fee. Their handiwork, and the blinds themselves, are backed by a rigorous guarantee that lets customers change their minds within 30 days and safeguards against defects up to a year later, so customers never have to cover up faulty blinds with a poster of their backyard. The only online part of their signature process, really, is placing the order. Minutes after the order is placed, the team at the production warehouse gets to work making it a reality, whether it's roller shades in a custom fabric, sleek solar shades, or classic wooden blinds.

Quilter’s Corner Store grew out of owner Deb's drive to create her ideal sewing room. And though the shop stocks several hundred bolts of quality quilting fabrics, patterns, and books packed with ideas, it still feels as quaint as a sun-soaked hobby corner. The shelves, racks, and cupboards loop around an enormous work table inside the store-front space. Guests can pop in to grab anything from bobbin containers to full-blown kits or stick around and chat with Deb about their personal projects. Either way, they can leave knowing that whatever they've picked up at the shop has been hand-selected by the Deb and her staff for their quality, ease of use, and value.

Growing up on a farm granted Ryan and Shane Stonemetz a firsthand look at the injustices of the industrial-food market. The brothers watched their father and grandfather toil daily to make ends meet and subsequently swore off entering the family business. However, as the pair established their adult lives in Portland and Seattle, they realized that injustices live forever unless someone puts up a fight.

And so began ProFarm Produce, a small farm-to-customer enterprise that lowers prices for shoppers and increases wages for farmers by eliminating the middleman. The company started with nothing more than a 12-foot truck and a bed full of organic cherries, but it has since grown to a fleet of trucks thanks to an extra-potent fertilizer that's safe for automobiles' digestion. The expanding staff transports ProFarm's bounty to 20 area farmers' markets and various wholesale clients. ProFarm also participates in a CSA program that provides weekly boxes of fresh, local produce to participants in surrounding communities.

Though you might have seen one hiking Tamanawas Falls and the other helming the Doctor Zhivago –themed float as a Battle Ground Rose Princess, the self-described spankettes of Spanky's are typically found hawking consignment items or chatting enthusiastically with sellers at their shops in Vancouver and Beaverton. As managers at their respective locations, Rhonda and Erika train their eyes on the latest fashion trends and watch out for functional yet flattering apparel to resell to local women, men, and families. Their collections change frequently, though they are known to snag duds from major brands such as Armani Exchange, Ann Taylor, and Coach. They also manage consignment drives at schools where parents, teachers, and undercover cops posed as students can drop off their gently used clothing and accessories.
