Summer is officially in full swing! We hope you’ve made the most of it so far. It’s a season of endless options. The warmer weather makes the outdoors our living room, the land gives us a bounty of wonderful foods, and the sun sticks around a few hours longer.
This time of year is unique because enjoying it can mean packing your days to the brim or doing next to nothing. Most of us spend our time somewhere in the middle, making a point to both relax and plan fun activities. If you’re looking for a perfect in-between option, a picnic fits the bill. Picnicking is a summertime classic. It’s something people of any and every age can enjoy. Why? Because a picnic can happen anywhere and with whatever foods you like! Plus, it requires little planning, it’s inexpensive, and it’s portable.
Did you know June 18 is International Picnic Day? To celebrate, we thought we’d help you out with the two most important picnic decisions: Where to go and what to eat. Spend International Picnic Day at Orr’s! Come on down to the farm, grab your favorite fruits and veggies, spread your blanket on a patch of grass, and enjoy! All you need to do in advance is pack whatever you’d like to accompany your selections at the farm. Some good ideas include tortilla chips, whole-wheat crackers, cheese, nuts, hummus, and Greek yogurt veggie dip.
On June 18, as always, you can pick your own berries or you can check out what our market has to offer. Either way, it doesn’t get fresher than this! If you’ve never been to the farm, International Picnic Day would make for a great first visit. You can see all we have to offer while spending a relaxing afternoon with friends or family. We’d love to see our grounds filled with smiling faces that day. If you have any questions, give us a call at 304-263-1168.
