The lucky winner of the family Victorian Christmas photo shoot at Historic Stewart Farm was Lisa Boerescu. She and her family visited the farm last weekend to take in Christmas circa 1894. And you can too!
The farmhouse is open Tuesday thru Sunday with holiday cheer every single day. Decorated in authentic Victorian style with local greenery and fresh baking on the wood stove, the farmhouse and grounds have something for people of all ages. Show the kids that Christmas means more than presents or our beloved elves on the shelves! Weekdays offer a tranquil visit and weekends (open noon-4pm) they have the following family friendly activities planned:
Saturday, December 3
Rhayne and Friends singing carols in the parlour
Performances at 12:30—1:00pm and 2:00—2:30pm
Sunday, December 4
String popcorn and make a Christmas tree ornament
Saturday, December 10
Live harp music in the farmhouse parlour, figgy pudding, apple cider and a barn scavenger hunt
Harp performances at 12:15—1:00pm and 1:45—2:30pm
Sunday, December 11
Live piano music in the parlous and make a Christmas card

On behalf of Historic Stewart Farm and the Boerescu family, have a very happy holiday season full of family and fun.
