Canby Farm Loop rolling
Don't miss out on fresh fruits and vegetables this time of the summer on the Canby Farm Loop.
With delicious produce including blueberries, tomatoes, potatoes and summer squash in season, consumers can either u-pick their harvest or find it ready-picked.
"During the first part of August the produce season is in full swing," said Mary Stewart, OSU Extension agriculture business and marketing faculty. "Mid-season berries are still juicy and many tree fruits are ripe and ready. Several varieties of vegetables are at their peak of quality and selection."
On the Canby Farm Loop, a driving route of 14 farm stops, consumers may U-pick or purchase ready-picked blueberries, blackberries, plums and a selection of vegetables and honey at Morning Shade Farm and Nursery, as well as many different kinds of fresh berries at South Barlow Berries.
Remember to check a farm's website, Facebook or phone message to confirm daily availability of fresh produce.
At Fir Point Farm, you will find a broad variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in their farm store and lots of fun with the farm animals and other attractions.
