The horses will be wearing their finest bells as they're hitched up for a morning trip to the woodlot, where visitors can help find the perfect tree for Howell Farm's Christmas celebration. Children are invited to join the fun of cutting and decorating the tree before St. Nick arrives to hear their Christmas wishes and give out cookies and coal....Throughout the day there will be farmhouse tours, live music, wagon rides, and a children's craft program. In the visitor center there will be hearty lunch fare, plus the farm’s own honey, maple syrup, and popcorn for sale in the gift shop...and a two-seater sleigh perfect for taking family portraits.**Please note that fall 2020 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events.
