Folly Farm is a micro-farm and you-pick garden at the base of Mt. Fannie in Cove, Oregon, focusing on gourmet garlic and open-pollinated heirloom vegetables.

Come on by or call for an appointment for your first visit and we’ll show you how things work. During growing season, we are open during the day for you-pick kitchen veggies, and by appointment for garlic, canned goods, and bulk harvests when available.

To spread our love for home-made cooking, we’re launching a series of workshops in 2016 focusing on good old-fashioned ways to enjoy the harvest from seed-to-fork all year long. Watch this site and like us on Facebook for updates and class schedules.
