We were blessed today with a couple of flats of Hood strawberries from our friends at Columbia Farms. Our daughter made several batches of freezer jam and a strawberry pie! yum. If you are still looking for u-pick strawberries on Sauvie Island, try Columbia Farms on Gillihan Road. They have been picking for a couple of weeks, so the strawberry season will be finishing up soon!
We are anxious to open our u pick this year...and are waiting for the raspberries and blueberries
to ripen. They are turning color, but need a few more days of sunshine to sweeten up. It looks like
it will be the middle or the end of next week before we have enough ripe berries to open our u pick. Our cherries are turning color, but also need a week or more to ripen.
Thanks for your patience!!! We will update our phone message as well as the website as soon as we set an opening date!

Sorry, it looks like it will be a couple of weeks before they are ready to pick. The CHERRIES should be at least two weeks away from being ripe. We are waiting for the flowers to bloom in the u-cut flower garden also. With the cool weather that we have had this past month, our crops will be a couple of weeks later than they have been in the past. We will keep you updated as to when you can come out to Sauvie Island to pick your own. We are looking forward to a great season this year. We have added some veggies to our u pick this year...and an old fashion tractor pulled wagon ride...more on that later!!
