What is a Farm Loop?

Your Authentic Farm Experience.

3-picture-farm-banner-resize2

Farm fresh produce. Crush season. Orchards heavy with fruit. Specialty foods and beverages. Friendly farm animals. Finding out about the land and today’s farming. Learning to cook and savor the local bounty. Nurseries and garden centers lush with bloom.

Out here is the real Oregon. Our community of family farms and value-added operations welcome you to join us for a taste, both literal and figurative, of what the Willamette Valley has to offer. Oregon Farm Loop winds through vineyards, rural plant nurseries, and farm stands of the Willamette Valley.

Oregon Farm Loop includes four intimate, local farm loops – each a complete itinerary and based around small communities: Canby Farm Loop, Farmlandia Farm Loop, Marion Farm Loop and Molalla Country Farm Loop.

Whether you seek the perfect vintage, flowers and plant starts that will add zest to your garden, the chance to be close to friendly farm animals, or find delicious local foods, Oregon Farm Loop can connect you to local family farmers and country business operators rooted in the rural community and committed to sharing their experience with you.

So how does it work? Each farm loop is a scenic driving route of farm stops intended to connect local family farms and value-added businesses with the traveling public. The “loop” can be done in whatever order tickles your fancy. You might visit only one or two farm stops in an outing, or take the day or many days to visit them all. Farm products are raised in seasons, so some farm stops may be open daily while others only open for a few weeks or just on the weekends. Before you go, check the farm stop website or Facebook for the day’s schedule.

The Oregon Farm Loop website will help you find locations, upcoming seasonal events, and suggested routes. By mid-April, printed map brochures are available at many Clackamas County and Marion County visitor centers and libraries or by request at farmloop@gmail.com.

We hope you enjoy a new adventure at every turn of the road on Oregon Farm Loop.
