Blueberry Bash at Terhune Orchards

Terhune Orchards is celebrating everything blueberry this weekend, July 6 and 7, at their annual Blueberry Bash. The sweet summer berries are big and blue, and the bushes are easy for all to reach, so visitors can wander through the orchards and "Pick-Your-Own" from 10 am to 5 pm.

In addition to blueberry picking, there will be pony rides, music, children's games in the barnyard, and rides through the orchards and fields on tractor-drawn wagons. Entertainment will be available for the children, including a puppet show presented by Tuckers' Tales Puppet Theatre on Saturday and Sunday at noon and 1:30 pm.

Bakers can get in the spirit by entering their favorite blueberry recipe in the Blueberry Bash Bake-off. Susan Yeske, Food Editor of The Trenton Times, will be judging the entries. Contest rules, prizes and entry form are available here.

Pam's Blueberry Bash Buffet is available for blueberry treats—blueberry drinks, blueberry muffins, blueberry pie and blueberry shortcake—as well as homemade favorites such as pork sandwiches, BBQ chicken, salads, gazpacho, cider slush, donuts and more. Bring home a fresh homemade blueberry coffeecake, blueberry cobbler, apple-blueberry crisp and blueberry salsa from the farm store. Adults can try Harvest Blues apple-blueberry wine in the Terhune Orchards Vineyard & Winery tasting room.

Parking is available at the farm, located at 330 Cold Soil Road in Princeton. Admission is free.
