Valentine's Day Rides, Music & Silhouettes
February 15 – The air may be chilly, but the farm's wintery landscape is the perfect setting for a heartwarming Valentine's Day ride. Couples can take a romantic spin in a two-seater sleigh or carriage pulled by a team of light workhorses. Families and groups can snuggle into a bobsled or hay wagon pulled by a handsome team of drafts. No matter the hitch, the horses will be wearing their finest bells.
After your ride, stop inside the farmhouse where renowned artist Lauren Muney will be demonstrating the elegant process of cutting silhouettes by hand—and talking with visitors about the history of this traditional craft. Individual portraits can be purchased to benefit the farm's school programs; there will also be live music in the parlor by the Jugtown Mountain String Band, and soup on the stove. In the visitor center, children can make a “Woven Heart” craft from 11:00 – 3:00 for a materials fee of $3
