Strawberry Days at Blooms and Berries!

Blooms and Berries Farm Market is a perfectly picturesque destination to visit all season, and now through June 6, they have something super sweet for families to enjoy!

With lush green grass, fluffy white clouds and the brightest of blue skies, Ohio is a breathtaking backdrop for sunny summer-y days! Bright, vivid flowers, bushes and other lush foliage are just few of the many reasons to head over to Blooms and Berries Farm Market – Strawberry Days is back daily through June 6!

While the U-Pick “Strawberry Lovers” packages may be sold out, there is still plenty to do down at the farm.

The “Fun Lovers” ticket means a day full of smiles and farm festivities!!! There are tons of cute photo ops, too 🙂 

The “Fun Lovers” ticket option ($9.95 weekdays/$12.95 weekends/free for children under two) ensures a phenomenal day at the farm for the whole family!!! Be sure to book an early time slot for Fun Lovers, there may be an opportunity to enjoy the u-pick addition if crop inventory allows for it, 

So what all does the “Fun Lovers” ticket include? The short answer is: a full day of fun at the farm. Read on for details…

 

Sliding, Swinging and Climbing, Oh My! 

Kiddos can climb up steps before they slide down Blooms and Berries’ huge tunnel slide. It is fast and it is steep and the kids are gonna love it.   (Pro-tip, grab a drink or snack before heading to the playground area, kids are going to want to go down this fun slide again and again. If your child is at an age to slide independently, you can kick back and relax for a minute while they play. If your kiddos are still too little and need some help… you’re gonna get your steps in and earn a drink and snack, also.)

There are two horsey swings in the playground area! These cute swings are repurposed using old tires and so is the tire hill nearby. Kids will love neighing on the swings and climbing up the tire hill, too. 

 

On Your Marks, Get Set, Go! 

The Barnyard 500 is the most animated and adorable race track you will ever lay eyes on! There are pint-sized tricycles for little racers and bigger trikes for kids-at-heart. Taking a spin around the track, riders will see playful barnyard animals like cows, horses and even chickens seesawing with an egg-filled nest.  

 

Jump around! 

Kids still bouncing around? Spend some time at the new inflatable strawberry bounce pad! The strawberry bounce pad is a fun way for kids to bounce and burn some energy. 

 

What’s All the Buzz About?

That buzzing sound is the low hum of the Bee Train as it whirrs around a figure-8 track! This bright and happy barrel ride zips around the course over little bumps in the road while riders delight. “Weeeeeee” the little ones squeal, with big smiles on their faces; the conductor  wears a big grin while driving around the track, too. Be prepared, you may be in line for this ride more than once- it is a big hit with little ones.



Baa and Moo; Hello to you, too! 

Honey Hill Farm Petting Zoo’s farm friends are so fluffy and happy looking. Buy some hay and say “hello” to the friendly llamas, goats, cows and the cool camel, too.

 

Tasty Bites!

Strawberries are front and center in the bakery, of course! Be sure to pick up an tasty treat or drink featuring sweet, ripe strawberries picked straight from Blooms soil!!! And on the way out, don’t miss out on some cheese, fudge or honey from the Farm Market. It feels good to shop local… and it tastes great, too.  On the weekends, there are also local food trucks AND live music! 

Of course, you will want to grab something for your garden, too. There are so many pretty plants to pick from, and kids will enjoy the new potting station where they can add fill-dirt and pick a pretty pot for their new plant.

 

Hurry! Don’t miss your chance to visit Strawberry Days, daily through June 6th!!!

 

For families with toddlers, Tuesdays are Toddler Days! Tots receive half-price admission with an adult full-price ticket.
