December

 Celebrating the Coming of Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…    Christmas, for us, is a special time of the year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord.  A time of joy, peace, love and faith.    We love the traditional side of Christmas, seeing families each year who’ve made coming to our farm a part of their Christmas tradition as well as welcoming newcomers.

It smells like a forest as you walk among our fresh cut Christmas trees 🎄.  We’ve a great selection of Fraser fir, Balsam fir, Spruce and Blue Spruce trees available.  They range in height from 5′-12′ with pricing for everyone’s budget from $30.00 – $110.00 +HST.

🦃It’s Turkey time and we have fresh, grain fed turkeys available for special order.  They are raised with care by Round the Bend Farms and are delicious.  Drop by the farm, call us at 905-985-6749 or email us at forsythefamilyfarms@gmail.com to place your order

Check out our Stock Up for Winter sales on our apples and winter vegetables.  We’ve got raw honey from our farm, homemade jams and preserves, our own naturally raised pork and chicken, fresh baked pies, Christmas cookies and more….

Come and enjoy a free cup of hot apple cider in our market. We’ve got crafts for the kids in our Market party room and our farm animals always love visitors

Saturday, December 15th from 1:30 till 2:30 –Join in with our talented staff to sing some of our favorite Christmas carols.  Lets all make a joyful noise.

Our farm closes for the season at 4:00 pm December 24th.  Reopening Victoria Day weekend.

May your winter be safe and warm!

November

 A Time to Pause, Reflect and Get Ready for Winter

Fall is a great time to visit the farm.  The air is cool and crisp; the colours in nature are glorious. November makes me think of homemade soup, staying warm by the fire and getting the last of the harvest tucked away for winter nourishment.

We are also looking forward to celebrating the Coming of Christmas – our fresh cut Christmas trees arrive late November.

We still have our farm animals and Barnyard playground available to visit weekends in November and December.  Come and get lost in our corn maze.  Our wagon rides and forest walk have ended for the season due mostly to unpredictable weather.  They will start up again on Victoria Day weekend when we open for the season.

Enjoy the bounty of our harvest by visiting our on farm market – Lot’s of fresh picked apples to choose from including Honey Crisp,  and take home some of our delicious fresh baked pies. Check out our Stock up for Winter specials.

7th annual Apple Cider Pressing Day

October 28th

Time to press Apple Cider!

The Geissberger brothers from Farmhouse Cider bring in their mobile cider press to turn our Ontario grown apples into sweet apple cider.  An interesting process with a very tasty outcome.  Get some hot off the press!  Their packaging – bag in the box – keeps the cider fresh for a year with no need for refrigeration.
Another great way to celebrate the harvest.
