Sunday, August 2nd, 2021

  8/2-Today the best U-picking will be Legacy and Bluecropbut we have Spartan, Dixi and the front variety section including; Jersey, Rubel, Patriot, Ivanhoe, Chandler, Toro and more! We are no longer picking large orders and may have enough for 5 and 10 pound orders on a day to day basis. We have a small crew picking and will be taking a look at the berries each day for quality. The heat wave reduced the size of the Legacy berries but the taste and firmness is still great. We plan to have We-pick for another week! Free to call and check for availability or just come to our drive-through to see what we have!  


 In addition, we do have frozen Legacy, Duke and Rubels (small baking berry) berries available, bring a cooler if you want to take these chilled boxes home.

Thanks for your business and loyalty. We are committed to providing the best quality berries without the use of toxic chemicals. This means that the farm may look a little different this year than in the past. Although we are hand weeding and using other organic practices there are more weeds than in past years. Be assured that the berries will be just as yummy, large and easy to pick!

CHANGES 

Interested in the changes you see or buying mature plants? The unfortunate news is that the southern half of the farm was sold by the previous owners to a developer. We wanted to purchase that part as well but were not able to compete with developed land prices. The new owner is removing some of the berry bushes and selling them. He is allowing us to harvest the berries this year for the last time.  If you are interested please find a way to contact him as we are not involved with this in any way. It is a sad loss but we have already planted 1,700 new plants this year and will plant more in the fall to help make up for those we lost. This is the last year we will be able to harvest the berries on the south end of the farm. The only variety that we will be losing entirely is Legacy. We are very disappointed but it looks like this is the last year to pick Legacy on this farm. One of our new varieties, Valor contains Legacy as one parent and will have similar qualities as Legacy but will not be ready for harvest for 3 years. 

COVID NEWS

Your safety is our top priority. The COVID-19 precautions that we will be taking on the farm include: 

1. Pre-order/drive up window pick up available for We-pick berries.

2. Social distancing managed by visitors picking in their own row.

3. Clean buckets or picking boxes will be provided for U-pickers.

4. Sales shed employees will be wearing masks/face shields when necessary.

5. Our farm staff will be monitored by way of temperature on a daily basis and asked to stay home if they have any signs of COVID-19.

6. Farm visitors are required to wash their hands with soap and water before entering and upon exiting the field. Ample toilets and hand-washing stations will be provided.

 

7. We will be happy to provide buckets and boxes for you to take your berries home. You are also welcome to bring your own containers that are clean and sanitized.

About us

Anderson Blues has been a family owned and operated blueberry farm producing supreme quality berries for over 40 years. Wayne Anderson started the farm and left it to his son Todd who carried on the family tradition along with his wife Paula, providing delicious high quality berries.  My husband and I were fortunate enough to learn from our dear friends Todd and Paula over the last 20 years and have now become the new owners. We are so excited to continue the legacy of Anderson Blues and welcome the loyal customers back to the farm this season as well as new ones. We believe that providing healthy food for our family and the community is a life mission worth our dedication and hard work.

 

There will be a few small changes this year, but for the most part you will not notice anything different here on the farm. We will be transitioning to a non-certified organic farm in the near future! 2020-21 has proven to be an exciting and dynamic year, we want to assure you we are confident that we can provide the farm experience and sweet large berries that you have come to expect. Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, 5 miles north of Corvallis we offer a true farm experience just 10 minutes outside of the city. Our family looks forward to meeting you at the farm this summer! We hope you enjoy the homemade treats and refreshments we serve in the sales shed. We value our loyal customers, and appreciate your business and support.
