This popular reading program is a cure for cabin fever. Children gather around a storyteller to listen to a book being read inside our big, heated greenhouse. After storytime they participate in educational activities and make a craft to take home.
The public is invited to join the Mount Family in their tradition of protecting their orchards and insuring a successful crop for the next season. Activities include dancing and singing by the Molly Dancers and re-enactments of old English traditional rituals. Everyone joins in with chanting and music making, toasts of hot cider and placing gifts of cider-soaked bread in the tree branches while chanting the lively words of praise for the New Year.
