JUNE 22-23, JUNE 29-30

Rolling fields of purple and blue and a sweet smell in the air – it must be lavender and blueberry season in the Sierra Nevada Foothills! Lavender’s soothing scent has been linked to health benefits like managing migraines, soothing anxiety, and improving sleep. Plus, the flowers are simply beautiful! While fresh-from-the-bush blueberries have an intensely sweet, juicy flavor – perfect to eat by the handful or to enjoy in fresh baked goods and beverages.

The Apple Hill Growers are celebrating both crops at this month’s Lavender Blue Harvest Days during the last two weekends of June 22-23, and 29-30. These early Summer weekends are the perfect time to visit Apple Hill farms for u-pick experiences, lavender and blueberry treats, crafts, artisan products and more. For a printable/viewable brochure and map, check back later for the brochure/map.

The lavender harvest is on full display at Bluestone Meadow Farm. Guests will be able to cut and make their own lavender bouquets, wreaths, or critters. An array of locally made products, including essential oils, soaps, and lotions, will be available for sale. Families can enjoy a wander through the Lavender Labyrinth and the ‘Lavender Answer Guy’ will be on hand to answer questions about growing and using this wonderful crop. And they’ve brought back the Kid Zone– a play area custom made for kids!

SAVE THE DATE!  Last year’s events are below.  Check back for updates for the 2024 season.
