Escape the hectic malls and head to the calm of the Morningstar Farm this Saturday, where there’ll be carolling wagon rides, live music, treats and more.

It’s the annual Christmas on the Farm event, a customer appreciation day from the family at the farm in French Creek, which is also the home of Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and the Mooberry Winery.

“It’s a nice, quiet thing to do for people looking for something relaxing and meaningful,” said Judy Haynes at the farm.

People can visit with the stars from the Bethlehem Walk (the four-legged variety) and behold a live manger scene.

There are cows, calves, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, bunnies and Carl the llama.

The farm’s famous raclette cheese will be on the grill and there will popcorn, marshmallows for roasting, cookies, hot mullings and of course fruit wine for tasting.

People can park at the Morningstar Golf Course next door and enjoy a complimentary wagon ride to the farm and back, and there will be a couple different live music performances to add to the Christmas spirit.

The event takes place from 11 to 3 p.m. Dec. 21.

 

The farm is located at 403 Lowry’s Road. For directions and more information, visit the website www.cheeseworks.ca.
