U-Pick Is Open, Let The Season Begin!

Yesterday was the first day of our U-Pick Field being open and we had a great day! So many people came out, especially for being a Wednesday. Our field is full of huge, gorgeous blueberries, that are getting sweeter with every passing day.

Our U-Pick Price is $2.65 per pound, we recommend bringing your own containers to take your berries home in. We are kid friendly, but ask you leave your pets at home. On sunny days there is little shade to park under and animals are not allowed in our fields. We are open from 8am to 6pm daily, now until around the 17th of August. 

If you dont have time to come visit us at the farm, stop on by the Corvallis Farmers Market on Saturdays. The market is on 1st. Street, along the river front in downtown Corvallis. Our booth is across from Denison Farms at the end nearest Great Harvest Bakery. We have all of our products available for purchase as well as fresh fruit.

Also look for our fresh raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries at Albertsons (Corvallis,OR), Market of Choice (Corvallis, OR), Trillium, and  Ocenana (Newport, OR). If they are out request us by name for more! 

For our out of state costumers, don't fret we haven't left you out! Soon you will be able to indulge in our raspberries and blackberries by buying them frozen and buying our other products that will become available sometime this fall! Keep checking back for details!

Raspberries and Blueberries Are Here!

This is the first year we are having raspberries, and they are in full swing at the farm. During the week please call a head to place an order and will have freshly picked raspberries waiting for you. On the weekends you can find our booth at the Corvallis Farmer's Market (located on the Riverfront in Downtown Corvallis), we are right across from Denison  Farms at the end nearest Great Harvest Bakery.

Blueberries are also starting to come on, our first variety is Duke, we will have them at the farm stand as well as at the Corvallis Farmer's Market. If your looking for more than 10 pounds at a time please call a head so we can make sure you get as much as you desire.

U-Pick Blueberries: We will have them, however the field is not ripe yet because they are Blue Crop and are considered to be a mid season berry. We are optimistic that the field will be ready to be open around the 14th of July. Please call a head to see what is happening during the time you are wanting to come out.

Our farm stand is open from 9am to 5pm daily right now, and as soon as U-Picks start we will be open from 8am to 6pm daily.
