In the summer of 1980, Clair Klock and his wife Beverly leased the Larson Blueberry Farm in Corbett, Oregon, a 20 acre farm which had a mature planting of blueberries, apples, raspberries and a variety of caneberries.
During the next eleven years we expanded this operation both as a U-Pick operation and commercial pick, harvesting approximately 50 tons of blueberries each season.
Today we have a loyal following of customers who come every summer to U-Pick our healthy and delicious berries.
Many of our customers have become life-long friends.
We hope to carry Klock Farm into the future with continued excellent harvests of quality blueberries.
We run our U-pick differently here at Columbia View Blueberries.
The difference is in allowing the berries to totally ripen before picking.
Once a bush is picked, we do not come back to it for 7-14 days, allowing the remaining berries to ripen properly.
We manage this with “row assignment” for every customer.
