Free Event, Open to All Ages

Help us celebrate this ancient British tradition at Terhune Orchards this winter. The Mount Family has made it a tradition to invite the public to the farm every winter as we dance and sing and celebrate the protection of our orchards to ensure a successful crop next season.

Enjoy dancing and singing by the Molly Dancers and re-enactments of old English traditional rituals, as well as chanting and music making, toasts of hot cider and placing gifts of cider-soaked bread in the tree branches while chanting the lively words of praise for the New Year.

Top the evening off by a bonfire, complete with marshmallows , and live music by the Spiced Punch Quartet playing traditional music using violins and flutes of many kinds

Join the fun. Bring noise makers ā€” drums, whistles, bells, clackers, or put a few pebbles in an empty coffee can with a lid. These will make a joyful and worthy noise to drive away any and all spirits.
