The time has finally come! From inspired wellness guides to master sommeliers and world-renowned chefs, Blackberry Farm has announced its 2024 Blackberry Year theme, “In Good Company.” 

The beloved and flavor-filled Cheese Geek event is back and more delicious than ever for 2024. Our dear friend and cheese professional, Kent Torrey of Carmel's famed The Cheese Shop, is returning to Blackberry Farm to lead three days of cheese and wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and inspired menus. This is the ideal event for anyone craving an opportunity to celebrate one of our favorite foods, paired with great wine and great conversation.
