Find farm stands from your phone
Use a smartphone to easily find farm stands, u-pick fields and on-farm events with Oregon's Bounty at www.oregonfb.org.
Strawberries, asparagus, squash, and salad greens — not to mention bedding plants, flowering baskets and fresh-cut flowers — are just a few favorites of spring's agricultural bounty in Oregon.
But if you want to venture out into the country, where can you buy directly from the source?
"Everyone knows where their local farmers market is. But what about roadside farm stands, u-pick fields and on-farm events out in rural areas? That's where Oregon's Bounty comes in," said Anne Marie Moss, Oregon Farm Bureau communications director.
Oregon's Bounty at www.oregonfb.org is a searchable directory of nearly 300 family farms and ranches that sell food and foliage directly to the public.
Oregon's Bounty allows visitors to do keyword searches for specific agriculture products — such as berries, cauliflower, honey, or eggs — and/or search for farms within a specific region of the state. Visitors can also do a keyword search for "u-pick" or "events" to find farms that offer those activities.
"Oregonians love farm-fresh food," Moss said. "Thanks to the diversity of agriculture in this great state, we can buy an enormous variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, flowers, foliage, meat, and nuts directly from the families who grew it."
She added, "Each of the farms listed in Oregon's Bounty are owned and operated by Farm Bureau members who are proud to share what they've raised with the public. Spring is a great time to take a trip into the beautiful countryside and experience Oregon agriculture firsthand."
