Christmas on the Farm

Dec. 3, 2022

If you’d like your ho-ho-ho to be a bit more e-i-e-i-o, then look no further. First up: Christmas with Alpacas at Northern Lavender farm in Mesick. Get the perfect Christmas card picture, complete with an alpaca photo bomb, as you stroll the light display at Northern Lavender Dec. 10 and 11 from 4-9pm. Enjoy a lavender cocoa, shop the farm’s purple wares, and feed their reindeer—we mean, mini horses—before you head home. $6 per person, free for kids 5 and under. Get all the details on Northern Lavender’s Facebook page. Meanwhile, just a 10 minute drive up M-37 in Buckley is Pahl’s Country Store, which offers Santa visits, marshmallow roasting, and a tractor-pulled hayride on Fridays from 4-7pm or Saturdays and Sundays from 1-7pm. Stock up on snacks at the store before exploring the grounds or cozying up around a bonfire. Entrance fee is $8. Learn more at pahlscountrystore.com/santa-experience.
