Heirloom Apple Club 2018
What do you do when you grow over 100 varieties of apples? Share them with the world through the wildest apple club around.
For over 20 years, the Queener Farm has delivered the best heirloom apples to many of Portland’s top chefs – now you too can enjoy some of them. Our apple club will bring you either 8 sampler boxes that include 3-5lbs of the widest selection from our very best apples during our 20-week apple season. The other option is our family size boxes, these are 15lbs each, in seven deliveries and total over 100lbs for the season. The boxes arrive every other week during the heart of the apples season.
In 2016 Apple club members enjoyed 55 different varieties during the season, from the tangy but sweet centennial crabs to the rich and spicy Karmijn de Sonnaville. It’s a range of apple flavors you can’t get from a grocery store. We bring you the kind of apples people enjoyed before industrial agriculture bred them just for red skin and storage life. These are apples you never imagined, picked at their peak and delivered fresh to you.

Portland Dropsites: There are four sites in the Portland area. Our favorite is at Know thy Food on 3434 SE Milwaukie. This is a Coop and they are just south of Powell Blvd. They are open until 7pm most days, the boxes stay in a cooler and members can get their boxes anytime they're open. We also have dropsites at Ned Ludd on MLK, and at members homes near 90th and Morrison in SW, in the NE area near 20th and 60th and in Wilsonville. Please feel free to email us for more details about Portland area pick ups.We also offer door delivery in Portland and the surrounding area.
Eugene Dropsites: We have two dropsites, one on Mckinley street and one in Springfield. We also offer door delivery in Eugene
Salem area: We currently just offer door delivery in Salem and we encourage Salem members to consider farm pickup, as the farm is a short drive from town and our cooler means you can pick up anytime.
Independence Dropsite: Right in downtown Independence at Indy Commons 278 S Main street. Boxes arrive on Tuesday and can be picked up anytime the commons is open, 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
Farm pickup: Members who pick up at the farm get a 20% discount. The farm is at 40385 Queener Dr. Scio, OR 97374. While our address is Scio we are actually only about 1 mile south of Stayton. This puts us just about 10 miles east of Salem, Oregon. We're easy to get to. Members who pick up at the farm have the advantage of "anytime pickup". Once the boxes are ready, members are notified and the boxes are in the cooler. Members can then pickup anytime after that, even several days later.
We encourage members from all areas to consider joining with a friend or neighbor and alternating farm pickup. This saves gas and means both parties get to take advantage of the farm pickup discount.
