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 make 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 freshly cut Christmas trees 🎄.  We have a great selection of Balsam fir trees available.  They range in height from 5'-8'plus

🦃It's Turkey time and we have fresh, grain-fed turkeys available for special order. Drop by the farm, or email us at forsythefamilyfarms@gmail.com to place your order

Check out our Stock Up for Winter sales.  We have raw honey from the beehives on our farm, homemade jams, and preserves, our own naturally raised pork and chicken, freshly baked pies, Christmas cookies, and more...

Peter Pan

peter pan - Dufflebag theatre

Wendy Darling is sad to learn that she’s growing too old to stay in the nursery any longer, and must move to the adult wing of the house. But when an adventurous young boy offers to fly her to Neverland where she can stay young forever, Wendy is catapulted into an adventure filled with magic pixies, charming pirates, and talking trees! As Peter Pan battles his arch-nemesis Captain Hook in DuffleBag Theatre’s fun version of J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic, even grown-ups will feel like kids again!  Check out their website for reviews

9th annual Apple Cider Pressing Day

Sunday October 30th- 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 - vacuum bag in the box - keeps the cider fresh for a year with no need for refrigeration.
Another great way to celebrate the harvest.

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 colors 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 in late November.

We still have our farm animals and Barnyard playground available to visit from Thursday to Sunday in November and December.  You are welcome to walk our fields and forest.  Remember - Dress for the weather!!!!

Enjoy the bounty of our harvest by visiting our on-farm market - lots of freshly 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.  Our CSA program has also been extended through to December 17th due to popular demand.

 A Time for Road Trips - Explore history in your neighborhood.

Did you know our farm is a part of the North Durham Temperance and Temptation self guided tour.  Drop in for a refreshing pause while on your tour through North Durham journeying through time and history of the region.
