The Green Bluff Growers Association...

...may have changed somewhat over the last 100 years, but the country hospitality of its members remains just as warm and friendly as a century ago. Come up and visit and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed! From the earliest days of the growers' association, which formed in 1902. In those days, the group's mission was to protect local strawberry growers from outside competition. Now, the association helps local farmers with agricultural tourism. The promise of an old fashion farm experience brings thousands of visitors each year to the rolling hills northeast of Spokane.

If you're from the city...

...and have never had an opportunity to pick your own fruit or simply enjoy a ride on a beautiful day, take a drive up to Green Bluff. There are two loops, the West and East, full of small farms for the adventurous visitor to discover. Part of what makes Green Bluff unique in the entire country is the large concentration of farms (over 30) within such a relatively small area (approx. 12 square miles.)

It's fun because...

... the experience and crops you'll find vary by season. For example, arrive in early August and buy apricots picked less than an hour before. While eating the juicy and still warm fruit, take a moment to examine the beauty of a golden wheat field beside the road. Mt. Spokane is not far away and it affords wonderful views and the perspective of how Green Bluff's farms dot the landscape.

Visit mid-September through October for the Apple Festival. What started a couple of decades ago as a one-day celebration of apples at the Green Bluff Grange has evolved into a six-week, all-out apple frenzy. Just like the old days, Green Bluff's many growers continue to sell bushel upon bushel of Jonagolds, Granny Smiths and Fujis. But now they also entice families with live music, hayrides, corn mazes, pony rides and petting zoos.
