Lusscroft Farm Annual Holiday Event
Historic Lusscroft Farm will be hosting their annual Holiday Event on Saturday, December 5, 2009 from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm. The Turner Mansion will be decked out for the Holidays and open to the public. A suggested donation of $3.00 per adult (children under 12 free) is requested to help in the restoration efforts. Organized by the Sussex County Heritage and Agriculture Association, Inc., the designated Friends group of this project, the agricultural heritage of Lusscroft and Sussex County will be highlighted on this day. Sussex County farmers will have their value added products for sale including honey, yarn and woolen items, soaps, baked goods, jellies, wine and cheese, and floral arrangements – all locally grown! Holiday music will filter through the halls as you tour the house and enjoy the educational exhibits that provide highlights of Lusscroft through the decades.
Entries from the 3rd annual photography exhibit, co-sponsored by Photographs of Sparta, will be on display. There will also be local craftspeople selling homemade items and Lori Space Day, the Zookeepers Daughter, signing her book about growing up at Space Farms. Please also support those less fortunate county residents by bringing a non-perishable item to donate to the Sussex County Food Pantry, hosted by Sussex County Social Services.
