Santa Can You Hear Me?

November 1st signifies the ultimate switch of seasons for us at the farm. As we’re packing away all things pumpkin, we’re preparing for parties and presents and everything North Pole!

It’s also the first day of gingerbread cookies in our bakery! Did you know the first recorded trade of gingerbread cookies dates back to monasteries, pharmacies and town square farmers’ markets in the 16th century? The tradition of baking gingerbread is simple, but adds a certain whimsy to the season.  We are honoured to bring Grandma Hughes’ recipe to our on-farm market every November.

This year, Santa Claus is taking time out of his hectic schedule to spend FOUR weekends with us at the farm! Mingle and jingle with the big man at our Christmas Open House with Santa on Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18 from 10am-4pm. This is a wonderful photo opportunity as you can take photos with Santa in our party room.

Beginning the weekend of Christmas Open House and continuing every weekend until December 9, Mr. Claus will be at Springridge to spread his jolly holiday spirit!

Christmas activities during these weekends include:
Make a Springridge Farm memory painting a glass ornament - $5
Decorate a freshly baked gingerbread cookie - $5

Bring your Christmas shopping list too! Our fantastic and festive selection of ornaments, decorations, giftware, gourmet items, baking and gift baskets await you. This month we’re also introducing our brand new Springridge Farm gift card…just in time for gift-giving season!

Ho Ho Hope to see you soon.
