Blueberry Festival

If you have visited Sicilian Girl before, you know how much I love to support the farmers who grow our food. It can be a peach farm in Arizona, a cacao (chocolate) farm in Kona, a vanilla farm in a tropical rain forest or a honey festival in California. Today’s post is about a blueberry farm in California.

It was an absolutely beautiful weekend in El Dorado Hills. Perfect for enjoying all things blueberry. And that’s exactly what the visitors to this family-friendly festival planned on doing.

Once in a Blue Moon Berry Farm, located at 1820 Arroyo Vista Way, El Dorado Hills, is pulling out all the stops for this event. The U-Pick option is a favorite of many festival-goers, but you can also purchase fresh berries as well as a plant or two to try your hand at growing your own.

For the little ones, there is face-painting, arts and crafts and games.

The petting zoo (especially the little piglet) was a big hit for the kids and their parents.

Lots of local vender tents offering various artisan products, dotted the landscape. Blueberry treats included shaved ice and lemonade, blueberry cotton candy, cookies, pastries and crepes, to name a few. Craft vendors sold soaps and body products, jewelry and more.

I always seem to focus on the kids at family farms, but not to be left out is something only for adults … Axe throwing (in a secure setting away from the little ones).

As we were leaving the farm, we slowed down …  

and just had to stop at this adorable lemonade stand, run by kids. The perfect ending to a wonderful day!
