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. Home of the Cove Natural Foods Co-op, an anchor drop for Azure Standard and Jason Weibe Dairy, we also are a stop along the Union County Farm Loop

Come on by or call for an appointment for your first visit and we’ll show you how things work. During the 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. Be sure to come on by during the Union County Farm Crawl, usually the last Saturday in June, for farm tours and refreshments.
