Located at the conjunction of Bear Creek and the Columbia River, in the idyllic North Coast of Oregon, lies a small family run farm.
The property for Blackberry Bog Farm was purchased in January 2015 after being abandoned for nearly 15 years.
According to legend, farm owner Scott emerged from a potato field and immediately started digging spuds. According to reality, he was a science teacher before deciding he wanted to be a farmer when he grew up.
Now he spends his days running the farm, tending to the fields, and working with local businesses to create a farm to table economy in Clatsop County.
One of the first products to come out of Blackberry Bog Farm was flowers and they continue to grow them today.
Blackberry Bog Farm has a two acre orchard. One acre is a berry patch, filled with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and grapes. In coming years, the other acre, the orchard, will start to produce apples, pears, plums, cherries, and peaches, as well as a variety of other fruits such as figs and hazelnuts.
Their berries also get made into hand-crafted jams and jellies. Extra berries are lovingly crafted into delicious preserves that you can find at the farm stand, or online for pickup at the farm.
A variety of produce is also grown on the farm including broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, pumpkins and corn.
Their produce and products can be bought at their Farm Stand, located at the farm, at the Seaside Farmers Market, or as part of a CSA share.
Blackberry Bog Farm is located at 40271 Old Highway 30, Astoria.
