Wassailing the Apple Trees
Terhune Orchards will host the Wassailing party with activities, which include singing and dancing and playing of primitive instruments, toasts of hot cider and placing gifts of cider-soaked bread in the tree branches while chanting the lively words of praise and New Year. Wassailing is an old English tradition where people would gather in the apple orchard and perform rituals to drive away the evil spirits and ensure a successful apple crop next year. Warm yourself next to our bonfire (marshmallows roasting included) or in their store. Farm wagon rides, weather permitting. Live music will be performed all afternoon in the farm market. This event is free. Please email Yifei at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
