Waking up 4 in the morning since I was 6 years old. So I know how much hard work goes behind growing delicious Oregon berries here in the Willamette valley. Boones Ferry Berry Farms has to have the best berries I have ever tasted. Not only was their very first pick nice a ripe, but every strawberry, marionberry, blue berry looked as though it was the very first berry from the first harvest (aka: first pick). The berries are not only aesthetically pleasing but are still as delicious and sweet as the first picks berries. Trust me, once you eat one berry, your mouth will "water" for more:)"
