You’ve picked berries at them in June, watched peaches ripen in August, and are gearing up for babies-on-pumpkins in October. There are so many farms near Portland, even if you go to two farms a week, you still won’t hit them all in a year! Over 100 farms nearby to visit, all offering unique produce, farm animals, and more. You can combine several farms into an all-day tour of one area, or just head out to a single one. Read on for six fantastic farm loops to visit!
Farmlandia Farm Loop
The Farmlandia Loops starts out south at Bob’s Red Mill for a hearty breakfast, then heads into Oregon City and beyond. One of the more bike-friendly loops, you can spend a whole weekend pedaling from vineyard to petting zoo to farm store. Purchase native plants and enjoy a nature walk at Boskey Dell, or purchase farm-fresh dairy and meat at Our Table Cooperative. Take an extended break at the year-round Oregon City Farmer’s Market, where you’ll find lots of kids activities and tempting produce to take home!
