Enjoy a Day in the Tualatin Valley Countryside
Within minutes, you are transported from the urban centers to the wide-open countryside, where farms abound. A visit to Tualatin Valley’s livestock farms provide a unique getaway just outside Portland, Oregon. From alpacas to bison, and a few surprises in between, take a break from the ordinary and explore several area farms.
Those aren’t llamas you see while driving along the country roads, those are alpacas, a relative of the llama. Tualatin Valley is home to several alpaca farms, which raise these social animals for breeding, as well as for their fleece, which is softer and warmer than sheep’s wool.
Please note: While some family farms welcome visitors, many farms throughout Tualatin Valley are not open to visitors. Face coverings are now required in all public buildings and outdoor spaces where you can not maintain physical distancing from people outside your household
