December 3 Holiday Open House 10 year anniversary 12 – 4pm
Join the farmers and community for an Ananda farm faire: warm drinks, sweets and savories, Christmas carols, the homestead holiday farm store (with new, first time creations), and some good ol’ fashioned yuletide joy.
We will also be celebrating Ananda Farm’s 10 year anniversary: Founded the first week of December, 2012. Hard to believe!
Live, outdoor Nativity Story at Ananda Farm
Friday, Dec 23rd from 3-6 pm.
Visit “Bethlehem” this Christmas season, to witness a live reenactment of the birth of Jesus in the “alpaca land meadow” at Ananda Farm on south end Camano. The merchants will be selling hot apple cider and roasted chestnuts. Fires will be burning for warmth, and straw bales await the townsfolk to sit down and watch, as the world welcomes the newborn Christ in the humble stable of Bethlehem. The live creche will unfold after sunset under the same night’s sky, with the same moon and stars, as that fateful occasion so many seasons ago. Bring your own candle to light and offer at the altar of the Christ child, a warm jacket, and the warmth of the Christmas season.
Please arrive between 3 and 4 pm, as the gate will be closed at sundown, once the procession is set to begin (no cars in Bethlehem).
