Wassailing the Apple Trees at Terhune Orchards – LocalHarvest

Terhune Orchards will host the Wassailing party on Sunday, January 27th 1:00pm – 4:00pm with activities, including 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. 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 (marshmallow roasting included) or in our store. Farm wagon rides, weather permitting. Live music will be performed all afternoon in the farm market. The festivities are free and open to the public, young and old.
