Berry Bliss: Local growers and u-picks in your area

Jul 13th, 2010 | Category: Farms, Features, Food

Northwest Washington is home to some serious berry country. Whatcom County alone, for example, is tops in the nation, producing 65 percent of the country’s red raspberries, the largest per capita crop of red raspberries in the world. The county was also ranked second for producing blueberries and strawberries. Nearby counties are also home to a number of farms, some of them operating since the 70s. The original Cascadian Farm on Route 20 in Rockport continues to provide fresh berries each summer.
Following are just some of the farm stands and u-picks available in the region. Be sure to confirm availability and other information before visiting the farm. A more detailed list is posted online at www.grownorthwest.com.

    WSU Snohomish County is looking for a small fruit vendor to participate as a vendor in their Master Gardeners Growing Groceries Coalition Expo. The expo is scheduled for March 5, 2011. We are wanting someone to sell plants, not fruit. Is there a way to broadcast this request to your website vendors?
