Apricot U-Pick 2019 Has Left Our Hearts Full!
To say our hearts are overflowing with joy is simply an understatement! The past two weekends, the Blenheim apricot was celebrated in a way we’ve never seen before. B & R Farms was visited by nearly 1,000 people for our first-ever Apricot U-Pick. People from near and far (as far as Oregon!) explored the orchards and took home over 300 pounds of fresh Blenheim apricots.
Today, the Blenheim Apricot is considered a rare and disappearing gem from nature. We are so grateful for the opportunity to share its treasured beauty with people from so many walks of life. We were particularly overjoyed to hear the giggles of young children, hoisted upon parents’ shoulders, experiencing nature’s bounty in a way that is so rarely enjoyed in the hustle and bustle of today’s everyday life.
Friends who hadn’t seen each other in nearly 40 years connected. A family of three who arrived via a private airplane came to get a nostalgic taste of their Hollister childhood. And an “Apricot Princess,” a young girl in a crown, danced through the orchards. All those who came to support us at the events will forever hold a special place in the story of B & R Farms.
And not to worry, there are still plenty of 2019 apricots left for your dried apricot enjoyment!
