Morning Shade Farm is located at 8345 S. Barnards Road, 7 miles south of Canby (30 miles south of Portland) in a peaceful country setting with picnic tables and flush toilets and hand washing facilities. We have containers available to pick into (2 gal buckets with a plastic bag insert) or you can bring your own containers. We accept cash, checks, and WIC/FDNP food vouchers. Credit and debit cards are also accepted. Please don't forget to bring a water bottle and sun screen. Sorry no dogs allowed. See driving directions below or see a google map at Morning Shade Map.
We minimize our use of chemicals, using organic certified sprays for insects only when monitoring shows it is needed. We use mulching and hand weeding around the berry bushes and some limited, non-organic weed control in the berry rows between berry bushes prior to fruit set. All of our orchard fruit and vegetables are grown with 100 percent organic practices. All of our irrigation and barn electricity is supplied by on-site solar energy. We are bee and salmon friendly.
Covid 19 concern - In compliance with state and federal health guidelines, do not come to the farm if you have any respiratory symptoms or fever and a mask is required when checking in and out at the farm stand to minimize the risk to other pickers and our workers. We are also requiring social distancing of at least 6 ft from other pickers and our workers. You will be assigned your own separate area to pick in that keeps you separated from other pickers and so you will not need to wear a mask while picking. Portable hand sinks will be available this year besides the regular sinks in our restrooms. We are sanitizing picking buckets and performing additional cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces as per state recommendations.
BERRY NURSERY - we have a large selection of blueberry and other berry plants in 1, 3, 7 and 15 gallon containers and several bare root fruit trees.
