The Chelan Ranch Open House was a lovely and memorable event that left a lasting impression. The experience featured Upick blueberries, delectable ice cream with various fruit toppings, engaging lawn games, a live musical performance by Mac Potts, and delightful gifts. This event seamlessly combined the beauty of nature with a celebration of good food, entertainment, and community.
The event’s highlight was undoubtedly the Upick Blueberry experience. The farm team greeted guests with the opportunity to pick their fresh blueberries straight from the bushes. The plump, sun-kissed berries burst with flavor, offering a genuine farm-to-table experience that both kids and adults cherished. The careful organization of the Upick area ensured a smooth flow, and the abundance of ripe berries was a testament to the care and attention given to the farm’s produce.
Participants could treat themselves after the Upick to complimentary ice cream. The pairing of fresh blueberries with a selection of ice cream flavors and other fruit toppings was a culinary delight. The creamy textures of the ice cream, combined with the burst of flavors from the fruit toppings, especially the fresh blueberries, created a symphony of tastes that catered to every palate. The farm team offered dairy-free sorbet for those with dietary restrictions, showcasing their attention to detail in organizing the event.
In addition, the live music provided by Mac Potts set the perfect tone for the event. His melodic tunes filled the air with an upbeat and vibrant atmosphere carrying over to the berry fields, adding an extra layer of enjoyment to the day’s festivities. The choice of live entertainment enriched the overall ambiance and provided a backdrop that encouraged interaction and a sense of togetherness among attendees.
Games and Activities:
Including lawn games was a brilliance that engaged guests of all ages. From friendly cornhole matches to Yardzee, the games encouraged mingling and laughter, fostering community and camaraderie. The well-organized setup allowed for both spirited competition and leisurely enjoyment, ensuring there was something for everyone to partake in.
Finally, the event’s thoughtfulness extended beyond just the experiences, with the distribution of gifts adding an extra layer of appreciation for attendees. These tokens of gratitude included samples of apple, cherry, and blueberry freeze-dried fruit, an insulated Chelan Beauty cooler bag for transporting fresh fruit, and a coupon for future use at the fruit stand or online store. The gifts were a thoughtful gesture that left attendees feeling valued and appreciated.
Testimonial from a mom of three enthusiastic blueberry pickers:
“I brought my three kids to Chelan Ranch for their open house event, which was a delight. Kids had a great time picking giant organic blueberries – they were delicious. We finished the morning with ice cream and listening to live music by Mac Potts on the lawn overlooking the lavender fields. It was a perfect day outdoors; we will return!” Mia Campbell.
