Makers

Central Oregonians are a collection of dreamers, doers, storytellers, and innovators who have all chosen this beautiful place as home. The result is a thriving community of makers who help weave the cultural fabric of this unique area.

To showcase the depth of creativity that flows here, Visit Central Oregon created the “Central Oregon Makers” campaign. We hope the content inspires you to seek out and support the people who bring our region to life.

Their grandfather, “Grampa Jack” Culver, was the first meat craftsman in the family, starting in Culver’s Market in Sutherlin, Oregon.
