Pumpkin pie steamers bring to mind brisk winter days at our favorite Christmas tree farm. A horse-drawn sleigh pulled by ‘Steve’ and ‘Sarah’ – the family’s draught horses – sweeps up through the evergreen trees to a common gathering area.
The clearing holds warming huts surrounded by toasty bonfires, happy farm animals covered in shaggy winter coats, and the most important event of all.
Meeting Santa and feeding his reindeer crispy apple slices is the cherry topper of our trip. We don’t even go for a tree. Ours is artificial.
