Our Local Berry Farmers
The Pacific Northwest provides the perfect climate for deliciously juicy berries thanks to our mild yet sun-ridden summers typical in Washington’s coastal valleys. A handful of dark colored berries is Earth’s natural treat, plus they provide a big boost of antioxidants. Look for our summer favorites like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and boysenberries, as well as the lesser known (but no less delicious) tayberries and golden raspberries.
Here’s a few of our local berry farmers:
Skagit Sun Berries
The Kruse Family of Skagit Sun Berries grow and pack their harvest in the rich Skagit Valley delta between La Conner and Mount Vernon, Washington. They’ve been growing many of their raspberry and blueberry varieties for many years due to their tried-and-true flavor and sweetness.
Barb and Randy Kraght have been growing top quality strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries on their farm since 1996, using only the sweetest Northwest varieties. Their berries are picked fresh every morning to ensure the highest quality possible.
Nearing their sixth generation of family
farming in the Puyallup Valley, Spooner Farms grows a wide variety of berries including raspberries, boysenberries and blueberries. With optimal flavor and quality in mind, their berries are hand-picked throughout the summer harvest season.
