Lusscroft Farm 2011 Annual Holiday Event
Historic Lusscroft Farm will be hosting their annual Holiday Event on Saturday, December 3, 2011 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday, December 4th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Three buildings including the Manor House will be decked out for the Holidays and open to the public. A suggested donation of $5.00 per adult (under 18 free) is requested to help in the restoration efforts of this historic property. The Sussex County Heritage and Agriculture Association, Inc., (designated Friends group of Lusscroft) will highlight the agricultural heritage of Lusscroft and Sussex County. Sussex County farmers will have a winter market with value added products including honey, alpaca and woolen items (check out the spinning demonstration), soaps, baked goods, jellies, wine, cheese, and floral arrangements - all locally grown! Holiday music will filter through the halls as you tour the buildings and enjoy the educational exhibits that provide information about Lusscroft through the years. Draft horses and other critters including friendly alpacas and furry bunnies will add to your children's delights; there will also be seasonal kids crafts and Santa! A chain saw artist will produce an original piece that will be auctioned Saturday afternoon for the benefit of Lusscroft Farm. The Manor House and Managers Dwelling will host crafters to help start your holiday shopping plus a Sweet Shop and bake sale. This years' photography contest will be on exhibit as well as equipment from the Sussex County Antique Engine Club.
