Superfood Company Opens in Sisters

Superfood Company Headed By Surfer Laird Hamilton Opens in Sisters

When you’re a world-class athlete you look for every edge you can find to push yourself to the next level.

Legendary surfer Laird Hamilton found one of his edges with a homemade creamer that he added to his daily diet, for an added natural boost of energy during the day.

Paul Hodge, CEO of Laird Superfood, had recently moved to Sisters and once he sold Hamilton on the idea that the creamer was the foundation for a new health food company, he also pitched the Central Oregon community as the place to locate the headquarters of the new venture.

For business leaders in Sisters, the question wasn’t if Laird Superfood was a good fit for the community, but how fast could they make it happen.

Sisters officials are hoping that Laird Superfood is the first wave of a rising tide of new businesses in their community.

Sisters Launches Survey on Growth

The city of Sisters is launching a new project called “Sisters Country Horizon”, and they want community and visitor input as they try to envision and grow the area.

Despite a rough summer for the small town, with major tourist attractions like the Sisters Folk Festival being cancelled due to wildfires, the city is looking ahead. On Thursday Sisters launched a new survey for citizens and visitors asking what they envision for the small town as it continues to grow. 

Sisters residents said they are hoping for something to bring tourists into town during the winter months and more affordable housing for residents as the small town continues to grow.

The results of the survey will be released at community forums in June. To take the survey and give your input, head online to www.sistershorizons.org

Affordable Housing Projects Break Ground

The communities of La Pine and Sisters are about to get two new housing options. 
Central Oregon Daily’s Austin Reed was at both of the groundbreaking ceremonies for the new townhomes on Tuesday and has the details on who will be eligible to rent them.

Property Management will take applications for the properties about two to three months before completion which is expected to be next Spring in 2019.

The Americana Song Academy for Youth

You will be amazed to see the talent that we have here in Central Oregon. I got to visit these high school singer/songwriters at the song writing camp in Sisters, OR. Watch them work on mastering their craft under the instruction of professional and inspirational musicians.
