Farmer Focus: Schedeen’s Farm

Schedeens pose in front of their sign: The calendar says fall but the berries say summer
Tony & Julie Schedeen have been farming berries in Boring, Oregon since 1977 when they purchased the family farm from Tony’s family. They farm all different types of Oregon berries from early varieties to late varieties and in some years they are picking until Halloween. Many of the varieties they grow are familiar to most people, including Marionberries, Boysenberries, Loganberries and Raspberries, but they also grow some unusual berries such as Olallieberries & Tayberries.

Julie and Tony want to make sure everyone can Eat Your Oregon Berries after the fresh berry season. They make low sugar jams and syrups from their hand–picked berries available year round at their two farms stands & market booths. This special low sugar recipe allows the fresh flavor of the berries to shine through.

In addition to the delicious Oregon berries and Oregon berry products, Schedeen’s has a variety of seasonal fresh produce. The Gresham location has a wonderful nursery with a variety of flowers & plants, vegetable starts and berries plants for your own garden. The farm stand also features a lovely selection of garden sculptures and seasonal merchandise.

When Julie and Tony are not farming or running the farm stands they love to stay home crafting and cooking.
