Thought you had to wait til fall to visit our Apple Hill farms? Nope! We grow so much more than apples. The Lavender Blue Festival runs the last two weekends in June with more than a dozen Apple Hill Growers participating! Bluestone Meadows‘ Lavendar Festival was so successful we’re celebrating the berries we grow as well! Enjoy the authentic farm setting at Bluestone Meadows, where you can pick your own lavender bouquet, make lavender wreaths and buy handmade lavender products as well as learn all about lavender during hourly seminars. While there, treat yourself to Harris Tree Farm‘s lavender donuts and berry jams.  You can also pick up local produce from Flying V Farm as well as baked goods from Apple Ridge Farms. Morty’s Food truck and kids petting zoo are also a favorite.

Don’t miss the one-of-a-kind u-pick experience at Rainbow Camino Ridge Farms with amazing views and 6 different varieties of blueberries to fill your pails. Fresh pre-picked blueberries are also available. You might want to quench your thirst at Delfino Farms who will open this summer just for the festival! Sip on the newly released blackberry hard cider and taste seasonal berry treats. Taste lavender rose sangria at Smokey Ridge Farmstand or stop by Lava Cap Winery and Boeger Winery for lavender pairings.  At Rucksack Cellers you can enjoy wine tasting plus take a class to make head bands from their estate grown lavender. To round out your Lavender Blue Festival experience, stop by Wofford Acres Vineyards for discounts and 24 Carrot Farm for lavender plant starts.

If you’re looking to get away from it all, why not make an appointment at Time Out Spa and Resort offering massage and spa specials for the festival. And extend your stay (while accommodations last) at Ponderosa Ridge Bed & Breakfast with blueberry and lavender treats for guests.
