This Sunday, December 21st is the Winter Solstice. The Winter Solstice is the day with the longest night. On the very next day we begin to see an increase in light, which is why many cultures celebrate the returning of the sun on the night of the solstice.
The Winter Solstice is the perfect time to relax, reflect, and be with family. Something about the cold and dark makes you want to be inside with your loved ones near. The time together can be spent reflecting on the blessings of life and remembering that the sun is returning more and more with each day.
Meet our orchardist and event coordinator at the farmstand on December 21st at 3pm for a guided Sunset Solstice Stroll thru the orchard- just in enough time to take in amazing sunset views and get back home to enjoy the longest night of the year with loved ones!
The sunsets here at Pietree are always beautiful and we are often lucky enough to see natural phenomenon such as sundogs from the top of our hill. Enjoy hot mulled cider and learn about orchard traditions and folklore associated with December such as Wassailing!
This is a FREE family event with limited space. Please call 207-647-4124 to reserve space or for more information. Dress warm with sturdy foot wear, bring a walking or hiking pole and don't forget the camera!
