Blackberry Farm

Friends of the Farm

Playing Together

Days filled with bright sunshine.
Family Adventures. Refreshing dips in the pool.
Summer doesn't get much better.

But then night comes. Summer nights at Blackberry are sublime: warm, honeysuckle-scented air, cricket
orchestras, crisp bottles of wine, the glow of concert lights as your favorite musician takes the stage. Music
has a magical ability to bring us together. Although we may be from different places at different ages in
different seasons of life, the love of music links us all. So when we christen our event center with a month of
music this August, we’ll really be celebrating another beautiful way to connect here on the farm. We hope
you’ll spend a few slow Summer nights with us doing the same.
