2 - 5 PM


Join us to bid our Good Life Farm-Kite & String Cider orchard goodnight in this season of long nights. We'll toast to dormancy for the trees, holiday times for the people and take a ride with Leo and Polly (the horses) for the kiddos!

Fire, cider, and warming food abound! 



A lesson in the art and story of Wassail, from cider scholar Maria Kennedy. Good Life Farm style, this multi-species celebration in is our orchard, featuring the musical talents of Three Stone Fire, the sled-pulling skills of Polly and Leo (our lovely draft horses), the burning tendencies of wood and the drinkability of cider.



Because we need to say thanks and wish the orchard well for 2017.  Curious?
