Blue Skies, Blue Grass!

Have we said this enough? We love summer! Here at the farm, we try to pack as many good times as possible into three months. We want our visitors to think of Orr’s Farm as not only a place to get fresh, local produce, but also a place to spend quality time with friends and family. One of our favorite ways to bring people together is our Bluegrass Weekends.

The last weekend of every month from May through October, Ernie Bradley and The Grassy Ridge Band and Friends will be here to play traditional bluegrass and originals. Bluegrass music is infused with a good-time spirit that people of all ages can enjoy. Bluegrass Weekends are a lively time on the farm. We love seeing the area outside the market filled with people tapping their toes, bobbing their heads, and enjoying some good old-fashioned fun. It’s especially entertaining to watch the little ones run up to the front of the crowd, jumping and hopping and wiggling to the fast-tempo tunes.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly weekend event, bluegrass under blue skies is the way to go. Throw in a bucket of fresh-picked berries and you’ve got a fine summer day in the making. If you haven’t been out for Bluegrass Weekend yet, don’t miss this upcoming weekend in July. Bring your lawn chairs and spend an afternoon with us. We look forward to sharing the fun with you!
