If you’re driving along I-5 through Southern Oregon in October or November, the place to stop is Seven Oaks Farm, just outside of Central Point. The Country Store is open every weekday (and Saturdays), as is the U-Pick pumpkin patch, herb garden, flower garden, and fall decoration shop. On weekends, Seven Oaks turns into kid paradise with pony rides, hay rides to the pumpkin patch, a hay bale maze, tire swings, and other fun attractions. Sip some cider, grab some local produce, and take home enough apples to make a pie or applesauce later! Check out their produce chart to see what goodies will be available for purchase (U-Pick or in the store) when you visit!
Distance from the nearest interstate: Right off I-5.
Date Last Visited: September 2010
Hours: 9 am to 5:30 pm daily during the harvest season. Call for updated hours for other times of year. 541-664-2060
Admission Prices: FREE. Some weekend attractions are extra, but we’ve always found them to be a good deal! Pumpkins, apples, and other produce is sold by the pound. Wheelbarrows and carts are available for use!
Dining options: Seven Oaks Country Store is open six days a week (closed Sundays) from 9 am to 5:30 pm, and has a large selection of local produce, jams, jellies, fruit, and the like. For a quick lunch after playing at the farm, many fast food options line I-5 near the Central Point exits.
Directions: Coming from I-5 South, take the first Central Point exit, which will put you on Rogue Valley Blvd., we are less than a mile up on the left hand side. Coming for I-5 North, take the last Central Point exit, and turn left on Rogue Valley Blvd., we are less than a mile up on the left hand side.
