Smith Berry Barn in Northern Willamette Valley, Oregon

This article is part of the one-month road trip series, The Great Northwest North American Wine Road Trip, during which we'll visit wine countries in Oregon, British Columbia, and Washington. Follow along in real time on Twitter with the hashtag, #NWRoadTrip.

As one of the last stops on our visit to northern Willamette Valley before heading northward, we checked out the Smith Berry Barn outside of Hillsboro; it was clearly an epicenter of the region's culinary bounty. The roadside store sells farm-fresh produce, jams, honey, and more—much of which is made using fruit and vegetables grown onsite. Smith Berry Barn also offers U Pick fruits, berries, and vegetables seasonally, and the season usually runs June 1-October 1. In total, they grow more than 20 types of berries and 25 varieties of apples, along with spatterings of other u-pick crops. Here are some photos to give you a taste of the good country livin' at Smith Berry Barn in Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Yeah, that's right: Bacon Pickles.

Even more jams? Jeesh.

We're taking off to Vancouver next! Stay ravenous.
