How Portland's 100-year-old Alpenrose went from dairy to institution
Cadonau Jr. said.
Today, Alpenrose packages its products with labels for grocery store private brands, another way to stay ahead of the creamery industry's cardboard-thin profit margins. They produced about 1.5 million gallons of milk in December, about average, though it tends to spike in the winter and then drop in the summer when ice cream takes over production time.
About 170 employees work in the plant, working in shifts that keep the plant running from 4 a.m. to sometimes 9 p.m. each day.
"To keep up with it, you have to run," said plant manager Bryce McKinnon, who married into the family and took the job 5 years ago after leaving Nike.
Alpenrose was one of the last dairies to quit door-to-door delivery in the 1970s, said Cadonau Jr. At their height of "retail routes," there were 35,000 customers getting fresh milk on their doorstep. Alpenrose competed with Carnation and Mayflower – now Darigold. Eventually, all succumbed to the grocery store. Five-hundred-unit delivery trucks just couldn't beat the efficiency of 30,000-unit semi trucks.
Now the dairy tries to distinguish itself with milk-based products such as cottage cheese and sour cream. Those products take a little more finesse. Co-president Rod Birkland eats cottage cheese every morning, reporting his notes back to the maker. It's a careful balance between too thick and too watery, Birkland said.
A community business
As technology and the economy forced the family to morph the business, they retained a connection to Portlanders that Cadonau Jr. and Birkland credit with the dairy's continued success.
Now 70, Cadonau Jr. remembers one summer night, standing at the center of the field under the lights, pitching a no-hitter. That night his team lost by one run. He sobbed afterward.
Take a journey back
Later, he coached his own kids on the same field. Those kids grew up. Now he watches his grandsons play ball, sitting in the stands alongside generations of Portlanders who also hold close their own memories of spending time at Alpenrose and the many local institutions it helped build.
Even after selling its milking herd, the family kept 30 to 40 cows at the dairy, not to supply the creamery, but to teach fourth graders on field trips how to milk a cow. After, the kids would cross the street to "grandma's house," where they took off their shoes and munched ice cream and cookies Rosina Cadonau baked them with some Alpenrose milk.
Some of those children came back at Christmas to visit Dairyville and the Western Town, a series of displays and shops with frontier-era facades. Perhaps their school choir or dance group performed at the opera house, built on the foundation of a hay barn that burned down.
Or maybe they now watch their own grandmother perform with the Northwest Senior Theater. On a recent January afternoon, they were on the stage singing Judy Garland's "Trolley Song" to 630 empty ornate chairs that Cadonau Jr. bought for 10 cents from a Portland theater that was going out of business.
The activities portion of Alpenrose almost takes as much room as the dairy operation now.
The next major addition came in 1967, when Frans Pauwels of Kissler's Cyclery, a Southwest Portland bike shop, approached Carl Cadonau Sr. about building a race track. After the reception the baseball field received, Cadonau agreed.
For two years, cyclists used a track in the dairy's front parking lot. But the Pan American games were coming up, and a velodrome for trials was ... (OregonLive.com)Feb 3, 2016
