Visiting West Union Gardens

Before You Visit

  • Please check the daily update on the home page or call before you come to find out if the crops you want to pick are available that day.
  • No reservations are required for picking. We are quite busy on sunny Saturdays. Picking on weekdays, evenings, and cloudy days are a great way to beat the crowds.
  • You may bring your own containers from home to pick into. We offer sanitized buckets for you to borrow if you want them, and we have take-home containers available for sale if you do not have your own.
  • Please leave your pets at home; no animals are allowed in the crop fields pursuant to Dept. of Agriculture regulations.
  • Our picnic area has a few tables that you may use. It is helpful to us if you would take your garbage home with you -- thank you!

U-Picking Etiquette

  • Please check in first at the tent, where we will welcome you and give picking information and directions to the fields.
  • Wash your hands at one of our sinks before you pick.
  • For health and food safety reasons, please don’t eat while picking, and be careful not to touch fruit that you will not pick.
  • Children must stay with parents at all times.
  • Please stay in the areas you are assigned or that are clearly designated as available for picking. Our staff is happy to answer questions.
  • Please respect any “no picking” signs around our farm. We grow a wide variety of crops, many of which may not be ready for harvest or are not available for u-pick.
  • Please keep off farm equipment and do not enter barns or greenhouses.
  • Flying of drones is not permitted.

Hours from opening date through August: Monday - Saturday from 8am to 8pm. Extreme weather or other circumstances may impact those hours -- the home page and phone message will be updated if so.

COVID Considerations

Our business follows requirements and recommendations from the State of Oregon, OSHA, and the CDC. At this time masks are not required either for u-picking or in our open-air farmstore, but please stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms. Please know that we are concerned for your health, and the health of our employees!
