So, during your next stay at Salmon Falls KOA, be sure to dedicate an afternoon to visiting one of these gorgeous farms.

Berry Best Farm

This charming family farm was built on love and has a 'berry' beautiful history. What started as a chicken farm in 1948 transitioned away from chickens, to hay, standard-bred horses and finally, to berries. The farm was handed down to its current owner from her parents. She and her family have adopted the farm and plan to protect it for future generations. 

Guests can stroll through the gorgeous orchard featuring about 2,500 blueberry bushes as well as juicy peaches and sweet raspberries. Be sure to call before visiting to ensure you are coming on a ripe day!
