Event Description

Raise a glass of hot cider with us as Terhune Orchards honors the trees that give us our wonderful apples. The ancient tradition of wassailing the apple tree to protect them from harm is a popular winter celebration at Terhune Orchards that you won't want to miss!

Activities include singing, 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. Warm yourself next to our bonfire (marshmallow roasting included) or in our store. Farm wagon rides, weather permitting.  Live music will be performed all afternoon. 

The festivities are free and open to the public, young and old. Call or visit the website for more information.
