Celebrate the first day of Spring on the farm! Zenger Farm is hosting family-friendly activities during Open Farm Day.
Zenger Farm is a 24-acre combined farm and wetland in southeast Portland. The urban farm hosts educational activities in a natural environment. Their programs teach kids and adults the importance of food, farming, wetland conservation and environmental stewardship.
During Open Farm Day, bring your family and friends to Zenger Farm for hands-on activities, self-guided farm tours and delicious food. When you arrive, you’ll check-in, review safety protocols, and pick up your interactive farm map and scavenger hunt.

- Tea Making: The booth will be sharing Zenger Farm’s organically grown fresh herbs from our garden, which you can use to make your own delicious tea combinations.
