The Buckhorn Springs Heritage Cookbook: Made from Good Resources, Full of Good Food and for a Good Cause


When Bruce began looking into printing companies for the Heritage Cookbook, one of our requirements was that they could guarantee FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification. The company that we chose, Friesens, met all of our expectations.

“Being FSC certified shows that you comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.”

Essentially, FSC certified products guarantees that the timber was harvested using legal and sustainable forestry practices. “FSC Controlled Wood…products avoid timber from the most destructive and harmful practices, such as illegal logging or human rights abuses.

We also opted to use paper that was chlorine free made with 10% post-consumer waste.(Check out the graph below to see the resources we saved.)

When we purchased Buckhorn 21 years ago, the first thing Bruce did was put Buckhorn on the National Register of Historic Places as a district, in 1989. This put us on the map, literally, of the Nation’s official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

These decisions are aligned with our business practices and lead us to put all proceeds from the book towards Buckhorn Mineral Springs a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Each purchase is tax deductible, with the funds we raise going towards the restoration of the Historic Buckhorn Springs Physiotherapy Clinic.

Come out for our book opening on October 3rd to see the Physiotherapy Clinic in its early stages before restoration starts. Help us preserve Oregon’s history!
