Summer is shining ahead of us, and one of its brightest parts is plodding through the dirt to gather Oregon berries in the morning sun. Fortunately, u-pick farms surround Eugene, making the experience easily accessible. Check out these farms (and there are many more!) for their u-pick options; we’ve organized them by distance from the Park Blocks that host the Lane County Farmers Market. Many of these farms are augmented with other fresh produce, flowers and baked goods you can pick up, plus it’s a great way to wear out kids if you’ve got ‘em. When spending a day on the farm, it’s a smart idea to bring your own containers, and wear sunscreen or a big floppy hat. Delicate berries, such as strawberries, hold up best when picked in the morning. Get picking, people!
