Wassailing is an old and lovely orchard tradition, all about toasting the health of the trees in the coming year. To wassail this year, Sweetland Orchard invites you out to the orchard on Saturday, January 12 from 2pm to 6pm.
They’ll have their annual toast bar (bring a topping to share if you’d like), lots of cider to drink, and a roaring bonfire. It’s a great time to get out and enjoy the orchard and the grounds, so bring your skates for the pond or go for a walk (or ski or snowshoe) in the orchard. At dusk, around 4:30pm, everyone will proceed out to the orchard together to toast the orchard’s health for the coming year, which will involve singing, noisemaking, and giving back a bit of cider to the orchard.
Come Wassail with us this year!
