Come home to Merridale this Christmas

Christmas at Merridale

This holiday season, we invite you to immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas at the Merridale Farm. Our trees are picked and the apples are pressed. While our juice slowly transforms into our next vintage of cider, we transform our orchard into a Christmas wonderland.

Here are some of the exciting things happening at Merridale this holiday season:

South Cowichan's Brightest Light-Up

Our doors are open to people of all ages to join us for an enchanting orchard walk for free! Thousands of twinkling lights, Santa's workshop, elves pressing apples, Rudolph and his reindeer friends in their stable, Snoopy at his ice rink and so much more. Runs until Sunday, January 5, 2020. Our Tasting Bar and Light Display are open until 7pm. We will be offering warm drinks, snacks and delicious cider, of course!
