Blue Barn Berry Farm Grand Opening Celebration to be Held July 11th


SYRACUSE, IN June 25th, 2014 — Blue Barn Berry Farm is now more than just a place to get fresh blueberries and blackberries. The official Grand Opening is being held July 11th, and will feature live music, food, vendors, games, ice cream with fresh homemade berry toppings and FREE Kettle Corn.

The Grand Opening is free to the public and all are welcome. Food will begin at 5pm and live music by highly-acclaimed local artist Megan King will be from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Food and ice cream will be available for purchase, including barbecue sandwiches with Blue Barn’s own “Blackberry-Jalapeno BBQ Sauce” and ice cream sundaes with fresh berry toppings. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, it will be a great evening to enjoy some farm-fresh treats and live music overlooking the lake.


Blue Barn Berry Farm is also now a lot more than just a you-pick berry patch. The Grand Opening celebration marks the official opening of Blue Barn’s Country Store and the Harvest Hall event room, which is already accepting reservations.


Blue Barn Berry Farm co-owner, Shanda Scheeren, said that “several birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers and local club meetings have already been reserved, and we are looking forward to a great season with some great guests.” The newly-build event room is 850 square feet, and despite being brand-new construction, it has quaint elements like authentic barn wood paneling and other rustic décor to give it a great down-home country feel.

Harvest Hall offers a full menu for hosted events with choices like a pasta bar, build-your-own potato bar, taco stations or a lunch deli platter. The highlight of the menu is a customizable “popcorn bar” which allows event goers to choose from a wide array of custom flavored popcorn popped fresh in an 80 gallon kettle.


Whether folks are looking for a formal event for up to 55 people in a nice fun indoor venue to host a child’s birthday party, reunion or family gathering, or outdoor events like weddings for up to 200 guests, you can’t beat Blue Barn Berry Farm. While there for an event, be sure to go outside and play some of the farm games like ring toss, ladder-ball, life-size connect four and a host of other favorites.


Overlooking Lake Jacob and nestled nicely into a full-functioning “u-pick” berry farm, you can’t beat Blue Barn Berry Farm’s Harvest Hall for your next event!
