Rainy Day Fun on the Farm

At Blackberry Farm, we cherish a rainy day as much as we embrace sunny skies. Warm-weather rain is refreshing. It creates a beautiful natural melody to enjoy an afternoon nap to, it reminds us to slow down amidst the high energy of the season, and it can even inspire us to get in touch with our inner child and play in the rain!

We love to talk about playing outdoors when Spring weather takes hold and we get the warm sunny days we’ve waited for. But there is no shortage of activities to be enjoyed on rainy days. The opportunities for fun, adventure and creativity on the Farm can’t be rained out!

The Blackberry Farm Concierge team are the experts on all the best things to enjoy on property, no matter the weather, and they’re sharing some of their must-do’s during Spring showers.

We would, of course, recommend visiting the Wellhouse. There is a wonderful menu of treatments to choose from. You can even make a day of it. Visit the gym for some indoor exercise, head into the showers to rinse off and enjoy a steam to relax, pick a cozy spot in the Meadow Lounge and watch the rain drops fall outside as you sip a fresh juice, and cap off your Wellhouse time with a massage.

Some other indoor favorites include our cooking demonstrations and wine or whiskey tastings. Cooking demos are a great way to get hands on in the kitchen and learn from one of our artisans. You can try your skills at making fresh pasta, cook with what’s growing fresh in the Blackberry Farm Garden and feel inspired to channel your own inner chef. You can’t go wrong with a tasting, either. Our beverage team will take you on a journey through flavor as you sip some of the finest wine and whiskey there is.

Don’t want to stay inside? Clay shooting is still a great outdoor option on rainy Spring days. The Clay Course has a new covered shooting perfect for practicing your aim in any weather.

Another option might be a private yoga class or painting by the glass class down at the Yallarhammer – with a fire going if it's a little chilly, of course. If you’re into fishing, settle into the Grey Drake and take a fly-tying class with our of our fishing guides. Then when the rain clears, you can put your new skill to good use!

Of course, we always love to have Stave puzzles and games available as a complimentary option on rainy days. Take them to your room or enjoy some time with other guests in the Hickory Club Room. We’ve got fun covered, rain or shine!
