Spring Bloom @ Quarry Hill Orchards

May 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’ll have fruit trees for sale, planting and care technique workshops, “make and take” regional vendor workshops (advance ticket purchase required), and curated springtime farm goods crafted and grown locally in our community.

The shelves are filled with spring inspired items such as pollinator seed packets, strawberry peppercorn jam, and floral scented candles to name a few. Looking for a gift for mom this year? We’ve got you covered with cards, gardening kits, handmade aprons, tea towels and fresh cut bouquets of flowers (pre-order your bouquets today if you like!). Asparagus, rhubarb and locally grown mushrooms are a couple of the things you’ll find in our produce selection. Celebrate the change of seasons with hanging baskets in addition to plant starts such as tomatoes, peppers and a variety of culinary herbs available on our porch. We can’t wait to see you and welcome you to the beginning of a fresh new year at the Quarry Hill Market Barn!

This event will be help from 10am-4pm on May 8th, 2021 at the Quarry Hill Orchards Market Barn.  This event is free and open to the public.

Pending Mother Nature’s cooperation, our tree’s three-day bloom cycle may be in full swing.  This will provide a lovely opportunity for some beautiful photo opportunities while you are visiting.  Please feel free to share your photos with us!

For the gardening enthusiasts, Marilla Field & Flora will be offering plants of her most coveted dahlia varieties for you to experience the joy of growing dahlias for yourself. Many growers who sell dahlia tubers are already sold out, but she’s reserved some just for you.

As an extra fool-proof step, these plants will already be pre-sprouted (flower farmer speak for the plants getting a jump start; they will already have leaves & roots established), so no guessing which way to plant a tuber. They’ll have a good start on the growing season for you too, and will be ready for the sunniest spot you can give them!

Invite a friend and join in on the fun!  Space is limited.  Advance purchase required.  Details and Ticket Purchase Here

HYDRO-DIPPING STATION – There will also be a  walk up hydro-dipping station throughout the event.  This unique arts and crafts activity is fun for all ages – the whole family can participate!  Hydro dipping is a method of applying color patterns to a wide variety of objects, using tints and paints on the surface of the water. Typically, paint is put onto the water’s surface, then the item that you are painting is passed through that fluid. When that happens, the paint or ink is evenly applied to the surface. It makes unique patters and no two patterns are alike.  Prices vary between $5 to $25 each. No advanced tickets purchases necessary for this station.  There will be pre-cleaned, ready to dip gourds and other items available at the hydro dip station. All items available for hydro dipping will be ready for the fun color to be added. It will take about 10 minutes for them to dry.
