this week on the farm

Peach season is coming to a end...quickly. The Elberta peaches will be available for you to pick on Wednesday, Sept. 2. We have just a few Elberta trees, so the peaches will go quickly. It is hard for us to predict how fast, so we will update the phone message at 503-621-3988 as soon as the orchard is picked out. After the Elbertas are all picked, the peach season will be over at Sauvie Island Farms.
We have beautiful Chester Blackberries ripe and ready to pick this week, as well as Bartlett Pears, cabbage, 4 types of peppers, 5 varieties of squash, basil, dill, cilantro and a few red tomatoes! Our Bodacious sweet corn should be ready to pick by the end of the week. We have fresh picked sweet corn each day while we wait for the u-pick field to ripen. The price is the same...6 ears for $1.00.
The u-cut flower garden is full of beautiful dahlias, zinnias, marigolds, sunflowers...and more!!
