We expect our season to run mid to late June through late August 2021 for fresh berries!
U-Pick, Frozen, Pre-Order & Drive-Through
This warm weather may bring an early season, for now we plan to open for U-pick on Thursday, June 24th. Many of you are asking about our super tasty, large and easy picking Spartans. The first Spartan U-pick day is planned for Sat. July 3rd from 6am to 4pm. Keep checking back in the case that the berries ripen sooner! 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!
We are excited to say that it looks like it could be an early year for blueberries. Starting June 1st we will be taking orders in two ways, on-line (here) through the website or by phone.
Thank you for your interest but we are all set with our work crew for the season.
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.
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, a one direction flow and 6 foot spacing in sales shed.
3. Freshly sanitized buckets or picking boxes will be provided for U-pickers.
4. Sales shed employees will be wearing masks/face shields and gloves 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. Farm visitors will use sign-in sheets to track who was at the farm on a particular date. This is helpful for contact tracing should someone visiting the farm be diagnosed with COVID-19.
8. 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.
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.
