U-pick fruit is back at Joe’s Place Farms

In late December 2020, Joe Beaudoin retired and closed his farm east of I-205 in Vancouver, Washington. Joe’s Place Farms sold fresh fruit and homemade treats, and hosted seasonal family events for more than 70 years.

But yesterday, I learned that the farm has reopened. Joe’s sons, Mike and Scott, are running the farm now. They’ve opened it for U-pick strawberries, raspberries, marionberries, and peaches. The hours for picking when the fruit is in season are 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

To find out what’s available, call (360)-892-3974. You’ll need to bring your own containers to carry your fruit home, and cash only is accepted. When you arrive, check in with a farm attendant at the entrance.

For more information, a list of the types of fruit that will be available, and the locations of the picking areas, visit www.joesplacefarms.com.

    1. You’re welcome, Pam! I was so disappointed when I heard about this last fall, too. I’m glad his sons are carrying on the tradition. I’m also hoping they’ll bring back the homemade goodies sometime.
