Sip some hot apple cider ($1) on the porch, see the house beautifully decorated and enjoy the grounds. No admission fee and all are welcome!
Stroll the grounds and see the Bachman House decked out for the holidays– and get a little gift shopping done too! McCoy Farm invites you support the restoration of this unique place by attending our Christmas Market on November 29 from 2 until 5:30 pm. There will be food and retail vendors, a hot chocolate bar, crafts, music and children’s activities. And up for auction will be a beautiful Yessick’s-designed Christmas tree for your home! We’ve also heard that a special someone may make an appearance if the reindeer can find a good spot to land…
You may park and walk from St. Augustine Church or park and ride a free shuttle from Pruett’s Market. There is no entry fee and all are welcome. Donations in support of the continuing restoration of the house and grounds will be accepted.
We hope to see you there!
