Our orchard has something for everyone!
Pre-Season - April 1 - mid-June
Happy Spring!! What can you come buy or pick on Green Bluff right now? Well, because our produce is grown locally, we do not have any fruit or veggies for purchase right now. They are just starting to grow!! Give us a couple of months and we will begin to have peas, lettuce, spinach, rhubarb and strawberries. Those all become available usually early June, depending on the weather! But even though there is no produce, our store is open for food, shopping and just enjoying GreenBluff! Story's Barnyard is open below for family hang time as well as our two kiddie playgrounds.
We have our annual Easter Egg Experience the Saturday before Easter. We also start our couple dinner date nights (3rd Friday of the month) & monthly girl wine nights (4th Friday of the month) in April and May! Check out the event page or FaceBook for more info!
May brings Blooms on the Bluff and our two day Mother's Day Brunch down in our event barn, all beautiful and decorated with live music and lots of food stations. We fill up completely every year so do get your reservations in via email. Blooms on the Bluff is where you drive around GreenBluff, enjoying the beauty of Spring on the Bluff and trees in beautiful bloom. Stop in for some lunch, walk around and just be glad winter has finally ended!
Strawberry & Rhubarb Season - June
One of the favorite times on GreenBluff is strawberry U-Pick season! HCO does not have U-Pick strawberries but we do have U-Pick and pre-Picked Rhubarb to go with those strawberries! Stop on by and we can give you insider tips on where to find strawberries on a given day. They are popular and often pick out hours after opening at the neighboring farms so you need to keep up with it and be ready to go when they are! But goodness they are yummy. We always have plenty of rhubarb, usually thru the first of summer.
Watch for our fun Summer Kick-Off for families mid-June. We hold a vendor fair, have a Scavenger Hunt and have lots of fun with live music and much more!
We also hold girl wine nights and date nights in July. Check out the event page!
Cherry Festival - end of June to end of July
U-PICK will be right HERE in July!! Our Bing, Rainier and Pie tree-ripened cherries will be available for U-Pick every day of the week, as soon as they are ripe! We have a couple of trees that ripen up before the rest so we typically open those up last week of June if possible. The rest of the cherries are typically ready starting first week of July. It is true that the later you wait, the sweeter they get. Your best Bing is the deep purple color. Check out the annual Cherry Pickers' Trot in July. It is our families' favorite GreenBluff community event!
We hold vendor fairs, girl wine nights and date nights in July. Check out the event page!
Peach Festival - mid-July thru end of September. Box specials often run around $38/20-22lb box
Celebrate one of our great treasures - big, juicy, tree-ripened peaches during the Peach Festival. Peach ice-cream, cakes, or pies - no matter how you slice them, our peaches are delicious. Plus lots of other great food, live music on weekends, and family entertainment! We have great U-Pick peaches but orchard is only open for U-Pick on days that the peaches are ripe. However, we always have great varieties of pre-picked at the front of the store. Come sample and pick your favorite! Buy by the box or the pound!
