Oregon City musician to perform at Berry Bash
Liepold Farms has long been a popular attraction in Boring.
Still, this year, the family faced the difficult prospect of not being able to host visitors as they safely continued their essential farming operation.
The Boring Berry Bash was born after local singer Amy Keys approached her husband's cousin Michelle Liepold-Krummenacker with an idea to use the many acres of the farm to offer a safe activity for visitors while helping to put employees and musicians to work. Before COVID-19, this family-owned farm worked throughout the year to build fun and family-friendly events around their seasonal products: berries in spring and summer; pumpkins and gourds in the fall. Their events have included the fall festival, a beer festival with brews from their hops, and farm-to-table dinners.
Boring Berry Bash is a new four-week series highlighting agriculture and built around the products that Liepold Farms produces like cider, strawberry shortcake, and barbecue.
Cars and trucks have been staged in roped-off areas with porta-potties. People are welcome to enjoy the outdoors and the view of Mount Hood within their allotted areas. Masks must be present for admittance and are required when visitors venture outside of their individual areas. Food and drink can be pre-ordered and are brought car-side by Liepold Farms staff following safety protocol.
Music has been provided by The Gold Experience on July 18, Margo Tufo-Birthday Bash on July 26 and Amy Keys on Aug. 1.
Oregon City's Rae Gordon will conclude the festivities from 5-8 p.m. on Aug. 8.
Admission ($20 prepaid and $25 at the location, 14050 S.E. Richey Road, Boring) to can be purchased at liepoldfarms.com or by calling 503-913-3033.
