The Farm Nisse

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

The Nisse – a farm elf from Scandinavian folklore – will visit Appleton Farms. While we wait for the Nisse to awake from her slumber in the hayloft, there will be children's holiday crafts, cookies and hot chocolate, and carolers. Upon her decent from the hayloft, the Nisse must be offered her porridge. If the porridge isn't just right, she will play tricks on the farmers and tie the cows tails in knots! If she likes the porridge, she will let us help spread the magic seeds bringing good fortune to the farm in the year ahead.

Registration is by the family- if you have 6 or more in your family, please register 2 families as we want to have enough cookies and hot chocolate for all. This year we hosting two nights of the Nisse on December 8th and 15th.
