Note: We are continuously updating this information for the 2020 season. Be sure to check the farms’ social media accounts or web pages for the latest updates on crops and specific policies around safety during COVID-19. Many farms require customers wear masks and do not allow you to bring your own containers. Crop availability changes daily, so be sure to check online for the latest info on what’s ripe and ready to pick.


Fill your pails (and tummies) at some of the best u-pick berry farms around.

Strawberries

Sauvie Island Farms  There’s not a lot of pomp and circumstance with this family-owned farm. Don’t expect petting zoos or food carts. But the strawberries? They are heaven on a stem.  Watch their Facebook page like a hawk to avoid missing out.

Bella Organic Farms Pick your own, or pick up freshly-picked berries. If you are heading out in the afternoon, call ahead since there may be updates to the fields’ status (if there are still ripe berries for picking) at this popular spot. There’s a large store and food pavilion with beer, wine and cider as well, and there are often goats and other animals onsite.

The Pumpkin Patch at Sauvie Island At this family farm with a 52-year history, you can pick berries, and make a day of it with their animal barn, gift shop, coffee stand, and patio cafe.

Boones Ferry Berry Farm Pick your own, or stock up on their freshly picked stash of strawberries. The well-stocked farm store also has pickles, jams, honey and other treats for you and the kids.

Lee Farms This year, pick your own berries by appointment only at this family farm in Tualatin. You can also order picked berries and items from their online store for curbside pickup.

Hoffman Farms This farm in the Scholls area of Beaverton is a popular spot for berry picking throughout the summer. Although the large play structures may be off limits this year, you can still pick up one of their legendary berry shakes.


Blueberries & Raspberries

Hillside Blueberries Go beyond Sauvie Island at this pesticide- and chemical-free blueberry farm. Hillside Blueberries is a family-owned farm, and another no-frills operations, but it has everything you need. Friendly, tolerant farmers. (Your child’s berry-smeared face will bring smiles, not scolding.) A happy dog. A port-o-potty. And blueberries like you’ve never tasted. Plan your visit for when the Spartan berries are ripe, usually in early- to mid-July. They are the perfect balance of sweet and tart and, at nearly the size of a quarter, you can fill up your buckets (and tummies) in no time.

Rowell Bros. You can pick up pre-picked raspberries at this family farm — but why would you? The raspberries fill the bushes, and are so big you can fill up a bucket before your kids even have a chance to complain that they are hot. The farm carries three varieties of raspberries (Cascade Delight, Willamette and Coho), from the more mild to the juicy-sweet. The staff is very knowledgeable and can tell you what berries are best for freezing, jamming, or just eating as-is.

Bella Organic True to its name, the raspberries here are 100 percent certified organic (along with the rest of its produce). Come to Bella Organic to pick your own, or pick up some pre-picked raspberries at the well-appointed farm store. On weekends you can grab lunch or a snack at one of the on-site food trucks, or enjoy the fruits of your labor at one of the farm’s many picnic tables. They also have free rides to the fields and farm animals — definitely kid-approved.

Columbia Farms In addition to strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, marionberries, and boysenberries (in season), Columbia Farms has a row or two of delicious black caps, but they go fast, so come early to secure your share.


Cherries

FieldTrip2-jun16Draper Girls Country Farm It’s surprisingly difficult to find pie cherries in these parts, but Draper Girls has them, and has them aplenty. There’s also a large farm store, eating areas, a swing, goats to feed, a stunning view of Mount Hood, and other amenities that make this a farm worth visiting in its own right. They are a bit strict about tasting the fruit, so you may not want to bring your kids on an empty stomach.
