where to get straw bales in Portland area?

Hi all,
I'm wondering if someone can recommend a good place to get a few bales of straw around Portland?
Also, has anyone tried straw bale gardening? I'm considering it to expand my garden onto the driveway, which is cement.
Thanks for any suggestions!

I got mine from Longhorn feed in Buxton. They are $8 each....a bit pricey, but it seems to be the going rate. I am using mine to do 3 sisters gardens....the central area for the corn and beans and the squash/pumpkins, etc on the straw bales.....

My original plan had been to setup 2 rows of bales, but the circle may actually make a better use of them, since I have the entire center for corn. I guess we'll just have to see how things go :)
