Welcome to our 2009 Season!...almost.

SAUVIE ISLAND FARMS 2009. We are looking forward to a great season this year. Once the sun starts to shine in Oregon, our phone starts ringing, with people asking if the strawberries are ripe! We LOVE the enthusiasm, but the strawberries need warm temperatures at night, as well as the sunshine for them to ripen. A pictures speaks a thousand words, so take a look for yourself. These are the strawberries in our field this last week of May. Still pretty green. They are increasing in size and there are a LOT of blooms, so it is going to be a great harvest, once they start to ripen. We might have a few ripe berries by the first weekend of June. Check back!

The peonies, our first flowers to bloom in the u cut garden are almost ready to pop. There are tons of blooms this year..they just a few more days also!We will also have baby spinach, peas and lettuce for our first veggies this year. We are looking forward to opening the farm for you to come out and pick your own fruit and veggies right from the field where they are grown. If you would like to receive an email update each time we add info to this blog, you can add your address on the right of this page. This will help you stay current with all that we have available for you to pick at

Lots of things are growing on the farm....check back for an update of what has been happening this past winter and spring! coming soon.....!
