It’s beginning to look a lot like an old fashioned Christmas on the farm!

Travel back to a simpler time before there were cars and big machinery. Our guides will be in period dress and ready to welcome you on your arrival!  Our property has been gaily decorated with freshly cut pine boughs, garland and wreaths. Baskets of pinecones, boughs and bittersweet adorn the center hallway.
