Winter Wassail at Virtue Farm

  • Virtue Farm 2160 62nd Street Fennville, MI, 49408 United States (map)

Come celebrate the 2nd annual Winter Wassail at Virtue Farm, our version of the ancient custom of visiting orchards in cider-producing regions of England, singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the coming year.

We will be hosting this event for the public on Saturday, January 21, 2017, for an afternoon of food and drink that will carry on into the night where we will continue the revelry in song and cider around the bonfire.

Virtue Farm, 2160 62nd St., Fennville, MI

(Free entry and free to celebrate with us in and around the Cider House. Cider and food will be available for purchase on-site. See below for additional Wassail Farm Tour option for small groups.)

Book your special Wassail Lantern Tour: $20 per person: 3pm, 5pm, 7pm. 
Take the wassail celebration into our orchards with a special tour through the farm grounds. The wassail tour includes cider samples, and the occasion's proper accoutrements such as a torch to lead the way, toast for the offering to the orchard spirits, and a seasonal mask.

Under-21 wassailers can attend the Wassail Lantern Tour for $10. This includes non-alcoholic cider and seasonal mask.

Contact to schedule a Wassail Lantern Tour, or ask about our mask- and crown-making workshops.

While our Cider House will be warm and cozy inside, please dress appropriately if you'll be spending time outdoors!
