Blooming in Oregon

Oregon’s beautiful landscape and diverse geography make for a vibrant and thriving agricultural industry with a $50 billion annual economic impact. The state has 34,200 farms spread across 16.3 million acres – 96.7% are family owned. Oregon.gov website

Oregon is one of the United States’s top three nursery production states and ranks Number 1 in the nation for the production of blackberries, boysenberries, hazelnuts, rhubarb, Christmas trees, some grass seeds, and potted florist azaleas.

One beautiful April day three generations of women visited the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm In Woodburn, Oregon, 35 miles south of Portland.

Opportunities abound for a stunning floral photo shoot, but this little pixie stole the show!
