Santa, here?! I Know Him! I Know Him!

Before Santa makes his list and checks it (twice!) find him to make sure you're on the right one, and take your pic!

Christmas Around the Farm at Linvilla Orchards

Running weekends through December 19, 2021

Linvilla shared a cute rhyme that we couldn’t help but copy and paste right here for you!
We cannot let you sit on his lap,
During COVID we can’t have that!
But don’t be sad- no reason to groan.
Linvilla has Santa’s Noelziphone!
So, make a list and check it twice,
We’ll make your visit very nice.
You’ll just talk in to the Noelziphone
and Santa will hear your words alone.
We’ll all stay healthy and cross our heart,
We can stay safely apart!
