Join the fun on Saturday, Feb. 25 for Mercier Orchards‘ annual Customer Appreciation Day. There will be free tractor rides, door prizes, llamas, food trucks, cupcake decorating station and magician performances. Guests will receive a free blueberry plant while supplies last.
Located in Blue Ridge, Mercier Orchards is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. It was founded in 1943 by Bill and Adele Mercier who purchased a 25-acre orchard, which has grown to 300 acres. They grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches and apples and host “u-pick” events throughout the year.
Mercier Orchards includes a bakery, cafe, store and farm winery.
