Oregon’s strawberries are here Kruger’s Farm has fields for picking. Visit the farm on Father’s Day weekend for the annual Berry Jam Festival. Each day is featuring hayrides, kids’ jam-making, face painting, live music, strawberry shortcake, and of course – plenty of strawberries to pick and eat.

Family strawberry picking is an Oregon tradition and this celebration is all about picking and preserving your own berries. Start by taking a tractor-driven hayride out to the strawberry fields to pick your own berries. Then join in the kids’ jam-making workshops at noon and 2:00 pm each day. End the day with fresh strawberry shortcake sold in the store for $2 each. Live music provides the background from 12:30 – 3:30 pm each day. U-pick berries are sold by the pound. For a complete schedule of the day’s events visit the website at www.krugersfarm.com.
