Our Story: MelRose Farm History
It all started with the love of Blueberries. Our farm was originally planted in 1977. It became MelRose farm was established in 2004 when Mel and Rosey Johnson became blueberry farmers. Mel was born and raised in Oregon and came back to his roots in 2004. “The folks” as we call them developed a wonderful place for people to come pick and enjoy the beautiful Oregon summer. We proudly serve clients from Salem to Montana, Idaho and California, and some local restaurants. Mel truly loved being a farmer and took great pride in the care of the bushes, while Rosey was busy talking to clients or picking for local restaurants.
Gone to soon: Mel lost his battle with cancer and passed away in August 2015, and is truly missed by all!
