Morning Shade Farm is located 7 miles south of Canby (30 miles south of Portland) at 8345 S. Barnards Rd in a peaceful country setting with some picnic tables and flush toilets. We minimize our use of chemicals, using only organic sprays directly on the berries and only when monitoring shows it is needed. Our orchard fruit uses completely organic production but is not certified. We are solar powered and bee friendly.
We have containers available with a plastic bag insert, or you can bring your own containers. Cash or check are best, but we can process debit or credit cards with 2 percent processing cost. Don't forget to bring a water bottle. Sorry no dogs allowed.
