Valley Flora is nestled on the banks of Floras Creek near Langlois, Oregon. We're a diversified family farm producing over 100 varieties of vegetables, berries and fruit for local restaurants, grocery stores, foodbanks, our farmstand & u-pick, and a community-supported agriculture program. As a mother-and-two-daughter trio deeply committed to ecological farming practices, our passion is growing good food with an eye toward the artful. Our love of land, place, fertile loam, and the next generation inspires us to use cover crops, compost and crop rotations instead of synthetic fertilizers and sprays, and to do most of our work by hand - with the occasional help of a couple of tractors and a draft horse. We adhere to all organic practices, principles and regulations, but we are not third-party certified organic. Whether you're biting into a crimson strawberry, savoring a vine ripe tomato, or heaping your plate high with Abby's Greens, you'll know you're getting the freshest local produce a person can find in this neck of the woods. We love what we do - so much you can taste it.
The Valley Flora u-pick and farmstand are open for the season, thanks to all the sunny weather we've had!
MAY HOURS: Wednesdays only from 10 am - 1 pm. We will start our twice a week regular hours in June.

Thanks for eating locally and supporting our family farm!
For the past two years, I've been working on a book project in the quieter months of winter. As of April it's hot off the press! Greenhorns is a collection of 50 essays by beginning farmers from around the country who write about the agony and ecstasy inherent in starting up a farm. They are stories from the field, capturing a wide range of perspectives. Funny and sad, serious and light-hearted, these essays touch on everything from financing and machinery to family, community building, and social change. You can pick up a copy at our farmstand, or order a copy online at: http://storey.com/book_detail.php?isbn=9781603427722&cat=Animals
We are pleased to offer our very own CRANKY BABY HOT SAUCE!
Handcrafted with homegrown hot peppers that are vine-ripened to a sassy red in our greenhouses. This hot sauce strikes the perfect balance between hot, sweet and tangy.
(Even if you don't like spicy stuff, it's worth 5 bucks for the label alone. That's our very own Pippin in the highchair, with a little help from PhotoShop...)
Approved for farm-direct sale by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
