“Spring Bloom Open Farm Day”
*** PLEASE NOTE: Due to unseasonably warm weather resulting in very early bloom dates this event is CANCELLED for 2013! We apologize for any inconvenience!***
We are excited about our new Spring Bloom Open Farm Day and we hope you are too! Come out to the farm and enjoy the sunshine and the orchard during our full bloom. Take a fun and educational hayride tour of the farm and learn about what it takes to grow that fruit you love to pick ($3/person, $10/family). Choose from one of our spring classes and learn about something new (classes TBA). Or just hang out in the park, let the kids play, enjoy a picnic and some sunshine, and of course don’t forget your hot fresh donuts. We hope to see you there! We always have FREE admission to the farm, with charges for some classes and activities.
Friday and Saturday June 28th and 29th 9am-5pm
Join us for our first festival of the summer... celebrating our fresh sweet cherries! Our fields are clean and beautiful and there are no ladders required so every member of the family will want to ride the wagon out to the field with their own buckets. Or pick up some pre-picked fruit, available in our outdoor store.
When you get done picking come on back to our shaded park and enjoy a BBQ lunch or fresh hot cherry donuts. And, make sure you save time for the kids to check out our playgrounds and our many other fun farm activities... including our Barnyard Buddies petting zoo!
A highlight of each day is the Old Fashioned Games we play in the park twice daily, at 11am and 2pm. Winners of the gunny sack, three legged and cherry seed spitting contests win hot cherry donuts! There are categories for old and young alike so mom, dad, kids and even grandparents can play.
Admission is FREE, so bring the car full!
Blueberry Daze Festival
Friday and Saturday July 5th and 6th from 9am-5pm
For "Farm Fresh Produce & Family Fun" there is no better place than our Blueberry Daze Festival! Come enjoy a day on the farm with the whole family as we break out in red, white and blueberries!
You will relish picking our fresh, yummy blueberries! They are HUGE and AMAZING and they fill the bucket quickly! And our premium sweet Cherries are not to be missed. If you don't feel like picking you can purchase blueberries and cherries already picked from our Berry Farm 'store'.
After picking in the warm sunshine, cool down in the shade of the big trees on our beautiful grounds and tap your toe to live Bluegrass music, while the youngsters have fun in Farmer Bill's Tree fort and our tractor playground. Allow time to stroll through our unique selection of craft and antique vendor booths, eat a yummy All-American lunch from our Berry Park BBQ or a fresh made warm blueberry donut at one of our many picnic tables. Kid's activities include our Barnyard Buddies petting zoo, our Barnyard Train and Horse and Pony rides.

What is fall without a trip to the farm with your family, friends or small group to enjoy the bounty of the harvest? If you are looking for clean, wholesome fellowship and harvest fun... then we're the farm for you! With two venues- our Berry Farm Park, and our Fall Park- we have a variety of activities that all ages will enjoy.
Our Berry Park is home to everyone’s favorite fall farm activity… Squeeze-your-own Apple Cider! It is the absolute yummiest, and you will love the process of making it yourself! Enjoy with a fresh hot donut, or stop at the BBQ for hamburgers, hot dogs, and warm chili. Let the kids play on the playgrounds while you tap your toe to live music, or learn something new with one of our how-to demonstrations. The kids love riding the Barnyard Train, and you’ll love shopping in our outdoor farm store for we pick apples, pears, pumpkins, and gourds. Make sure you visit the petting zoo, and ride the ponies before you head out the Fall Park for more farm fun!
When you have done it all at the Berry Park, hop our free hayride shuttle out to the Fall Park for crisp, yummy, fresh off the tree u-pick apples. Spend some time treasure hunting in the pumpkin patch for that perfect carving pumpkin, decorative gourds, and a huge variety of winter squash and unique pumpkins. Sit around the campfire and enjoy a caramel apple or a hot dog while the kids get lost in our Barnyard Mystery Corn Maze. Younger ones will enjoy climbing on the straw pile, and exploring our kiddie maze, while older kids (and dads too!) love taking aim with our apple sling shots… make it through the donut hole and win a dozen free donuts!
We look forward to serving you in the orchard... or the pumpkin patch! As always at Bill's Berry Farm, festival admission is FREE! (There are fees for some activities).
