Trexler Farm is growing again!

Trexler Farm is now the in-house caterer for event groups at the Santiam Golf Club.

“The relationship I have had with SGC over the years has been so great for all of our customers,” said Sharlene Trexler, who owns Trexler Farm. “Everyone wins when we have the best event places in the Canyon to help bring friends and families together.” 

The journey has been in the making since 2002, when Trexler and her husband, Kirk, started selling retail Christmas trees under the business name, Trexler Farm. Three years later, they expanded by adding the bakery kitchen for farm customers.

“In 2009, we started providing lunch for our local businesses and neighbors,” said Trexler. “We only had three tables and an 8-foot by 8-foot kitchen.”

Soon the Stayton eatery had a devoted following for her fresh and healthy fare. The venture evolved to include catering, Trexler said.

In 2010 came the Boat Room which hosts parties for up to 24 people. And in 2015, Trexler Farm began helping the Oregon Department of Forestry providing food for crew during fire season, when the Big Cliff fire broke on July 4 near Detroit.

“Kirk offered to relinquish his shop so tables and chairs could be brought in to feed more than 200 firefighters three times a day,” Trexler said. “This room has evolved into the River Room, where concerts are also held once a month in partnership with KYAC Radio and Hearts to Arts. ”

Since September, Trexler Farm has been catering events at the Santiam Golf Club, managed by Howard Robertson.

“Since Howie has been so busy with the new business he has brought to the golf club, the SGC board had been looking for opportunities to upgrade the dining experience for their members,” Trexler said. “This partnership seemed like the next logical step.”

Robertson echoed Trexler’s comments, “Over the last couple of years, Sharlene helped me quite a bit. From the Club’s perspective, and for the customers’ experience, bringing in a professional caterer seemed like a good fit. Things are going in a very positive direction.”

“We have over 30 events scheduled for 2019,” she said. “Trexler Farm will be hosting Valentine’s dinner, Mother’s Day brunch, and hopefully we can bring back a weekly Sunday brunch in the spring.”
