Where the Berries Grow
The Willamette Valley region, located south of Portland, is the heart of Oregon berry farmland. Nestled between Mount Hood and the Cascade Mountain range, the fertile, rich soils of the Willamette Valley produce the finest wine grapes, peaches, cherries, apples, hazelnuts, and you guessed it, berries.
#1 in the United States
Oregon ranks number one in the United States in frozen blackberry, Marionberry, and black raspberry production, and is a top 5 producer of frozen red raspberries and boysenberries.
Fresh From the Freezer
Did you know that more than 90% of the US grown, frozen blackberries you find in the grocery store are from Oregon? Perfectly preserved and picked at the peak ripeness, frozen Oregon berries transform savory and sweet dishes alike, and add full, sweet berry flavor to every smoothie, salad, and scone.
You can find beautiful Oregon berries in your grocer’s freezer, or if you’re local to the NW, you can get them fresh during the summer months in the produce section or at the local farmer’s market.
Harvest Season – Typically July to September
Oregon berry season varies from year to year according to the weather. Individual berry varieties are harvested over several weeks within the harvest timeframe. Interested in fresh, local Oregon berries? Follow us on Facebook to get the latest information!
