Oregon's Bounty as close as your phone
Looking for a fruit stand or a U-pick field this spring and summer? Check your phone.
The Oregon Farm Bureau has added information about farm stands, U-pick fields and on-farm events with Oregon's Bounty at www.OregonFB.org.
"Everyone knows where their local farmers market is," said Anne Marie Moss, Oregon Farm Bureau communications director. "But what about roadside farm stands, U-pick fields, and on-farm events out in rural areas? That's where Oregon's Bounty comes in."
Oregon's Bounty is a searchable directory of nearly 300 family farms and ranches that sell food and foliage. Oregon's Bounty lets visitors search for agriculture products, such as blueberries, cucumbers, honey, or eggs, or search for farms within a specific region.
"Each of the farms listed in Oregon's Bounty are owned and operated by Farm Bureau members who are proud to share what they've raised with the public," said Moss. "Spring is a great time to take a trip into the beautiful countryside and experience Oregon agriculture firsthand."
