Winter Wassail at Virtue Farm
January 21, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
Come celebrate the 2nd annual Winter Wassail at Virtue Farm, the farm’s version of the ancient custom of visiting orchards in cider-producing regions of England and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the coming year. Virtue Farm will be hosting this event for the public on Saturday, January 21, 2017, during an afternoon of food and drink that will carry on into the night, when the revelry will continue in song and cider around the bonfire.
Free entry and free to celebrate in and around the Cider House. Cider and food will be available for purchase onsite.
Book your special Wassail Lantern Tour: $20 per person: 3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Take the wassail celebration into the orchards with a special tour through the farm grounds. The wassail tour includes cider samples and the occasion’s proper accoutrements such as a torch to lead the way, toast for the offering to the orchard spirits and a seasonal mask. Under-21 wassailers can attend the Wassail Lantern Tour for $10. This includes non-alcoholic cider and seasonal mask. Contact email@example.com to schedule a Wassail Lantern Tour, or ask about the mask- and crown-making workshops. While the Cider House will be warm and cozy inside, please dress appropriately if you’ll be spending time outdoors!
