Our two favorite "food" places, though, had to be Faber Farms (a cranberry farm near Bandon) and the Brandy Peak Distillery.
Learning how cranberries are grown and harvested was really fascinating, and the incredible variety of products made from cranberries was wonderful too, especially the Cranberry and Green Chile Salsa (no kidding....its fantastic!)
The Brandy Peak Distillery, near Brookings, takes some effort to find, but is well worth it. We got a private tour of this little boutique distillery from one of the owners. Did you know that brandy is essentially distilled wine? The brandies have won many awards, but the don't-miss surprise hit was the blackberry liqueur....great over vanilla ice cream!
