You-Pick Herbs at Rise Up Remedies
Experience all that our small scale certified organic herb farm has to offer at our Fresh Herb You-Picks. Wander through our many rows of herbs grown at the base of Mount Hood and harvest your own herbs to craft herbal magic at home. Build your home apothecary with herbs you've carefully harvested yourself!
HOW IT WORKS
Throughout the peak growing season in the Pacific Northwest (June-October), we host monthly you-picks at our farm in Gresham, OR. We welcome anyone interested in harvesting fresh herbs to our farm on select Sundays each month (dates below!) from 11:00AM-3:00PM.
We cultivate over 30 species of herbs at our farm, many of which are available for you-pick during their specific peak harvest times. As such, the available herbs changes for each you-pick date. We try our best to share the available herb several days in advance of each you-pick, so you can be sure the herbs you are hoping to work with will be harvestable.
When you visit our farm, be sure to bring your own harvesting supplies including bags, clippers, and closed-toed shoes. After a brief introduction, we'll set you free to roam our farm plot and harvest from our rows.
PLEASE NOTE: The farm is not dog-friendly! We love dogs but we cannot have them on the farm. As such, we ask that you leave your dog at home. All parking spots are located in full sun and aren't a safe place to keep a dog while you harvest.
PAYMENT METHODS & PRICING
We are able to accept cash or credit at our You-Picks. We charge a flat rate of $20/lb for all You-Pick herbs. There are no weight minimums on You-Pick herb harvests, so you can feel free to dabble in smaller quantities of herbs you’re just starting to build a relationship with. Often times, our You-Pickers are surprised by how little the herbs they've harvested weigh!

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 13 other farms and all of their employees. While you visit our farm plot, these other farmers will be hard at work growing vegetables, fruits, and flowers for 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.
COMMUNITY FARM RULES
- 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.
- Check in with us when you arrive at the farm. We will have a stand set up to welcome you to the farm.
- Please come prepared with closed toed shoes.
- Our farm is a dog free zone.
- Additionally, please only park in designated parking areas and only visit our farm plot (see designated parking areas below).
- There is no public restroom located on the farm. Silk Espresso, across the street from the farm entrance, is a lovely place to stop for a coffee or kombucha and has a restroom available.
The farm address is: 28600 SE Orient Drive, Gresham, OR 97080. You can put Rise Up Remedies in Google maps 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.
After you park, please check in with Laura at the pop up booth so we can get you oriented and show you the available herbs.
