I was looking for a new farm to visit this year. It is fun to explore the Portland area U-Pick Farms. Especially at this time of year when the berries are ripe. Most of the locally grown strawberries are gone now, but the blue berries and many other varieties are ripe now. And, nothing tastes better than ones fresh off the farm.
Here is a link to farms, recipes, canning tips, and other resources: http://www.pickyourown.org/ORporteast.htm
Have fun and let us know what you discover.
