The beauty of the winter season
The beauty of the winter season can only be fully appreciated by exploring the countryside. Many farms are still open and waiting for your visit. Cut your own Christmas tree at a farm, enjoy a wagon ride and pick up some greenery.
Take some time to explore the farms in your area or go for a drive and find some new ones. Many on-farm markets are open year round, depending on the products they produce and offer. Click on the ‘Find a Farm’ button and explore farms nearby or farms that offer unique foods to try. Grab your mitts and your hat and get out in the countryside.
