‘Christmas on the Farm’ Will Be Hosted Dec. 3-4



“Christmas on the Farm,” a special way to celebrate the holidays in a country setting, will be at the Montgomery Agricultural History Farm Park in Derwood on Saturday-Sunday, Dec. 3-4.

On each day, the Farm Park, which is located at 18400 Muncaster Rd. in Derwood, will welcome visitors with activities and displays from noon-5 p.m. There is no charge for admission.

The celebration will include free cookies and cider, a bake sale of homemade treats, hayrides, a farmhouse tour and an opportunity to see farm animals up close.

The event will be hosted by Friends of the Montgomery Agricultural History Farm Park and supported by Montgomery Parks, which is part of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

The Agricultural Park looks at the past, present and future of farming in Montgomery County. The 455-acre park features rolling hills, open fields, an apple orchard and a variety of farm animals. It offers a unique perspective of the County’s rich farming heritage and enables visitors to experience barns, historic buildings, a modern farm activity center and other facilities.

The park also has five miles of natural surface trails that lead to a tour of the surrounding fields and countryside. The Percheron Trail continues south under Airpark Road to the Pope Farm Nursery, where a wide variety of trees, shrubs and ornamental plants are grown for Montgomery County’s 30,000-acre park system.

For more information about the event, go to friendsofthefarmpark.org.

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.
