Merridale's Christmas at Farm

The 2020 holiday season will be different than others. At Merridale, we are embracing the moments of joy that are still possible. We invite you (and your bubble) to immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas at the Merridale Farm. 

Unfortunately, in light of the new regulations, we have had to postpone our open invititation to our community to come enjoy our free walk.  However, we are still open for lunch, dinner and tastings at the farm. It’s important for all to follow the new regulations, so we ask that you click here to view our COVID safety precautions.  Please read on to learn more about the Merridale Spirit.

Merridale’s Christmas Magic

An extra treat, when you come to visit us for a tasting, a meal or to shop in our store, you’ll see  a courtyard with thousands of twinkling lights and holiday displays.  

Face masks or face coverings are mandatory inside our Farmhouse and outside in our Courtyard. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe. They keep your face warm too! For additional safety, we also ask that you stay in your immediate family or core bubble groups, while checking out the display in our courtyard. To learn more about our COVID plan, click here.
