Welcome the start of the Holiday season by joining Beasley’s Orchard for an old-fashioned, relaxing and festive day at their “Christmas at the Orchard” event in Danville.  This one day event is to be held Saturday, November 17, 2012, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Walk into the warm and inviting 150-year old barn market, smell the apple wood burning in the fireplace, and catch a glimpse of Santa sitting on his antique sleigh – all will promise to take you back in time.

Be sure to have your children bring their wish lists!  Jolly Old Santa visits from Noon to 4:00pm.  Professional Photos by Elizabeth Chapman are unlike any you will find elsewhere. Beautiful Christmas tunes will fill the air throughout the day. Butler University’s Freshly Brewed A Cappella Choral group will sing the first part of the day, followed by the lovely sounds of the hammered dulcimer played by Sharon O’Connell.

On the enclosed and heated front porch you will find wine tastings, activities for kids and several high quality Arts & Crafts vendors offering great gift ideas for Christmas!  At the Cider Bar, do not miss the Hot Spiced Cider, sure to warm your heart!  Beasley’s will also be offering free taste samples of their best selling products.

Outside the barn, several popular Indianapolis Food Trucks will be onsite offering their delicious meals and treats for lunch and snacks.  As long as the weather allows, festive tractor-pulled wagon rides will be running at $3 per person ages 3 and up.  This delightful tour of the 165-acre farm is fun for the whole family.

In the market, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to get a jump start on your Christmas shopping with wonderful gift ideas, even for those that are hard to buy for each year, including unique preserves, jams, jellies, assorted pickles and dressings, baking mixes and kitchen gadgets.  Beasley’s also offers custom fruit baskets and gift-boxed fruit available to ship to family and friends no matter how far.

Gather the children, round up your shopping and wish lists, prepare your taste buds and let the magic of the season begin with Christmas at the Orchard in Danville.
