The magic of Christmas is furry and four-footed at Pumpkin Vine Family Farm’s holiday craft markets on Sundays, Dec. 3 and 17. In Scandinavian tradition, the Yule Goat brings presents to children at Christmas, accompanied by the Tomten, a farm gnome who looks after the well-being of the animals. The farm’s special Yule Goat and Tomten will be visiting the farm from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., for fun and photos with young and old alike. Children will have the opportunity to make a special treat for the animals in their neighborhood.
After a visit to the barn, browse the local crafts and farm-fresh treats at the farm’s holiday market. All products are made by local artisans and reflect the beauty and bounty of nature, from wreaths to hand-knits to skin-care products and jewelry. Pumpkin Vine’s edible treats include cajeta (goat’s milk caramel sauce) and truffles, as well as squash, pumpkins, and other veggies for one’s Christmas feast.
Bring walking boots (and a sled if it’s snowy) to enjoy the beauty of the farm’s hills and fields in winter. There will be a fire and free hot chocolate to warm everyone inside and out!
