Join us as we celebrate everyone's favorite berry – the Blueberry. It is right to honor this nutritional powerhouse with a day of sweet family fun. You can spend time picking our homegrown Blueberries right where they grow, and we'll also have a wonderful supply of Raspberries as well! You're family will love the sweet berry treats from the Apple Barrel.
Blueberry Fest is made possible by The Hartford Courant
Fun activities include Breakfast on the Deck, Blueberry & Raspberry picking in the orchard, live music, complimentary food tastings and demos, pony rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, henna art and interactive activities for children throughout the day. Plus, Bruno Bros. will be making their delicious Kettle Corn throughout the event!
We’re thrilled to welcome back to the farm the band Goldrush. Their blend of music crosses many boundaries of American music, but is rooted heavily in traditional country, bluegrass and American folk. That being said, Goldrush is well known for taking great songs from many other genres and giving them a new life powered by a broad array of acoustic instruments that portray these beautiful songs in a different light. Overall, their sound is acoustically pure, energetic and harmonic.
We'll be sampling our own BBQ sauces, fruit butters, salsas, baked goods and more throughout the day. Plus, we'll have some of our favorite partners on site as well to sample our best selling and most-loved products!
