On December 10 and 11, visitors will have the opportunity to meet live animals, learn about local Christmas traditions, and even have the chance to take their picture with one of our festive farm animals! They’ll be able to cozy up to the campfire with a cup of hot cocoa or cider, or even purchase a beer to enjoy during their visit!

“We are looking forward to showcasing the Farm this December fundraiser,” said Elysabeth Utick, Director of Development. “The lights and decorations, along with seeing farm animals, and the program will be a fun way for families to experience the Farm and start a new holiday tradition.”

Holidays on the Farm is an outdoor, evening experience that allows guests to utilize their time on the Farm on areas that interest them most. They can stroll about and take photos at various vignettes, visit with the animals, and enjoy the campfire with family and friends.

Another fun way to kick off the holiday season is to see a Laser Music Show from December 3 – 11. Experience your favorite holiday, pop, rock, classic, and country music like never before!
