2018 Wassail

Wassailing is an old and lovely orchard tradition, all about toasting the health of the trees in the coming year. To wassail this year, we invite you out to the orchard on Saturday, January 13 and the festivities go from 3:00 to 6:00.

We'll have our annual toast bar (bring a topping to share if you'd like), lots of cider to drink, and a roaring bonfire. It's a great time to get out and enjoy the orchard and our grounds, so bring your skates for the pond or go for a walk (or ski or snowshoe) in the orchard. At dusk, around 4:30ish, we'll all proceed out to the orchard together to toast the orchard's health for the coming year, which will involve singing, noisemaking, and giving back a bit of cider to the orchard.

Come Wassail with us this year!
