PLEASE NOTE: Due to our current health crisis, we are not accepting ANY visitors on our farm. You-Picks scheduled in April have been cancelled. Please visit this page for updates regarding you-picks scheduled on later dates. We are working on ways to safely supply our Portland community with local plant medicine. You can receive updates via email by joining our email list here. Thank you for understanding.
Experience all that our small scale certified organic medicinal herb farm has to offer at our bimonthly Medicinal Herb You-Picks. Wander through our many rows of healing plant allies grown at the base of Mount Hood and harvest your own plant medicine. Build your home apothecary with herbs you've carefully harvested yourself!
How it Works
Throughout the peak growing season in the Pacific Northwest (April-October), we host bi-monthly you-picks at our farm in Gresham, OR. We welcome anyone interested in harvesting fresh medicinal and culinary herbs to our farm on the first and third Sundays of each month from 11AM-3PM.
We cultivate over 50 species of medicinal herbs at our farm, and many of those are available for you-pick during their specific peak harvest times. As such, the list of available herbs changes for each you-pick date, so if you are looking for specific herbs be sure to visit our AVAILABLE HERBS list below before you plan your visit. This way, you can ensure the herbs that you are looking for will be available.
On the first and third Sundays (dates listed below), you'll visit us and our plants at the farm! You'll bring your own harvesting supplies including bags, clippers, and closed-toed shoes and in exchange for picking your own herbs, you'll get a 10% OFF our fresh herb pricing. It's as simple as that!
We accept cash, credit, venmo, and paypal as payment methods. There is a half pound and full pound price. All quantities 0.5lbs and below will be charged the half pound pricing. Any amount above 0.5lbs will be charged the 1lb price.
In an effort to make our herbs available to many people, there are no weight minimums on you-pick herb harvests.

Getting to the Farm
Rise Up Remedies is located at Headwaters Incubator Farm in Gresham, OR. We lease a parcel of land from Headwaters Incubator Farm and share resources (like a propagation house, barn, and farm tools) with 11 other farms and all of their employees. While you visit our farm plot, these other farmers will be working hard to bring sustainably grown vegetables, fruits, and flowers to the greater Portland area.
As a visitor to our farm, we ask that you are mindful of our setting within a larger working farm community. Safety is our first priority and as such, we have a few community farm rules listed below. We kindly ask that you follow them.
- If you encounter a farm vehicle or tractor when you arrive or when you are leaving, please make room for them.
- Please observe the farm speed limit of 5mph.
- Please come prepared with closed toed shoes.
- Our farm is a dog free zone. Please be prepared to leave your dog(s) in your vehicle if you must bring them with you.
- Additionally, please only park in designated parking areas and only visit our farm plot (see designated parking areas below).
The farm address is: 28600 SE Orient Drive, Gresham, OR 97080. You can put Rise Up Remedies in Google maps or other mapping apps and you should find us easily.
When you enter the farm property, you will drive down a long gravel driveway. When the drive opens up there will be a red barn on the right. Our farm is the first plot on the left after you pass a small creek. It is directly across from the barn and the greenhouses.
You can find a map of designated parking locations below. Please ONLY park in these areas. If you are unable to find parking in one of these designated locations, please call 330-329-5636 and we will personally assist you.
After you park, please check in with Laura or Lizzy at the pop up booth so we can get you oriented and show you the available herbs.
