GRANDVIEW — Lower Valley residents said their final farewell to the u-pick portion of Bill’s Berry Farm on Sunday, March 12.
“Our family was very sad to have to close down the public u-pick portion of Bill’s Berry Farm because we know many people have really enjoyed the farm and had come to rely on it for healthy, quality produce,” Julie Michener, director of FUN said.
After selling a portion of the land and leasing the rest Bill’s Beery Farm gave resident a final chance to visit the u-pick farm to purchase their fruit plants.
“We had hoped to be able to sell to someone who would continue the u-pick offerings, but we did not find a buyer,” said Michener. “We had a wonderful 14 years creating and growing the business and enjoyed meeting so many people and forming lasting friendships. We want to thank the many people from all over the pacific northwest who visited our farm and supported our business and family. We hope the beautiful memories everyone made here will last well into the future!”
Bill’s Berry Farm will continue to maintain owner ship of the Berry Park where they hold their festivals with them currently planning to continue their spring educational tours in May and June.
In the future, Bill’s may continue to offer fall pumpkin tours as well as continuing offering to rent their property to families, churches, community groups and businesses for their gatherings and events.
