Non-Certified Organic

U-Pick, Frozen, Pre-Order & Drive-Through

Dedicated to providing fresh berries without using harmful chemicals.
We have extended our U-pick season until the 7th of Sept. In addition we will have fresh late harvest Legacy for a few more days! Call in advance to make sure we have some left!

Today the best U-picking will be Legacy! Open 8am-4pm! 

News

  August 31-Sept. 6th - 2021

  We are U-picking Legacy through Labor Day weekend! The best berries will be hiding inside the bush so if you are willing to search and look under branches you can still find great quality berries and plenty of them. 


 In addition, we do have some fresh late harvest Legacy and frozen berries, see more information below.

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!

EMPLOYMENT

Thank you for your interest but we are all set with our work crew for the season.

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.
