Morning Shade Farm is located in a peaceful and pictorial setting on 80 acres of berries, orchard, and forested land back off the main road. We are located about 25 miles south of Portland Oregon. We have a few picnic tables available for a picnic lunch or snack. We use integrated pest management, mulching, and fertility monitoring to minimize our use of chemicals. Our irrigation is completely solar powered. Our U-pick vegetables are all organically grown and we use only organic chemicals or ones derived from natural substances sprayed directly on our u-pick fruit. We do use some inorganic fertilizers and very limited weed control on the ground in the rows between our berry bushes and fruit trees so we are not organic certified, but we provide healthy fruit at a much lower price than certified organic farms.
Please remember to bring a check or cash because we are not able to accept credit/debit cards. We have 2 gallon buckets here for you to use lined with a plastic bags you can take or you can bring your own containers. We also have cardboard flat boxes that we sell at cost: $1 per flat box and additional $1 for 12 hallocks. Sorry, DOGS are not allowed in the fields due to Deptartment of Agriculture sanitation rules. Our picked blueberry operation has been GAP Certified (good agriculture practices) for safe food handling. On the farm we maintain portable toilets and soap/water hand wash units. We have water available to refill bottles but please bring your own water bottles.
