Schrock's Amish Farm and Tis the Season will host the 8th annual Christmas Down on the Farm on Saturday, Dec. 1. The entire farm is decked out with Christmas lights to put you in the holiday spirit. Bring your children or grandchildren, along with your camera and take pictures with Santa as they tell him all about their Christmas wish list. Take a sleigh ride and listen as the sound from the sleigh bells fill the air. After 3 p.m. you can visit the live Nativity and hear the West Holmes Varsity Choir as strolling carolers providing entertainment throughout the various shops involved. This is a family friendly event that will create Christmas memories to last a lifetime.
Children younger than 12 can decorate their own gingerbread house, make a craft ornament, dip their own candle, dip chocolates and decorate Christmas cookies (from 1-7 p.m., while supplies last). Buggy rides and train rides will also be available as well as a free wagon ride that will provide transportation from one location to the next (weather permitting). Stop in at the café for a gourmet hot chocolate bar or melt-in-your-mouth delicious homemade apple fritters made by Mandy Beachy.
All of the shops at Schrock's Amish Farm & Village will be open until 7 p.m. and offer refreshments to visitors. Shops include Tis the Season, Ms. Gadgets, Berlin Leather, Berlin Pets, Gramma Fannie's Quilt Barn, Precious Petals, Quail Hollow Candle Shop, Berlin Antique Mall and Craft Mall.
