Event Type

Raise a glass of hot cider with us as Terhune Orchards honors the trees that give us our wonderful apples. The ancient British tradition of wassailing the apple trees to protect them from harm is a popular winter celebration at Terhune Orchards that you won’t want to miss!

Activities include 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. The Handsome Molly Dancers and Kingsessing Morris Dancers will lead us in festive singing and dancing to ensure our orchards have a good harvest in 2020.

Warm yourself next to our bonfire (marshmallow roasting included). Live music will be performed all afternoon in the wine barn by Spiced Punch. The festivities are free and open to the public, young and old. Call 609-924-2310 or visit www.terhuneorchards.com for more information.
