The working farms along this trail provide some of the most unique and engaging experiences. We ask that you respect the invitation to enter each property and be cautious around farm animals and equipment. Children must be supervised at all times and you should be prepared to follow all site- specific rules. For your safety and comfort, be prepared with appropriate footwear, sun protection and water.

We hope your experience along the Great Umpqua Food Trail doesn’t end when you leave the area. We encourage you to bring a taste of your journey back home to share with friends and family as a reminder of the bounty available in the Great Umpqua region.
