This fall at Hensler Nursery has been one of our most memorable. We’ve enjoyed seeing so many visitors come to the farm for all of the Fall Fest activities. So many have been delighted with the opportunity to ride the horse-driven tram to our pumpkin patch and more than a few of you discovered the hand-crafted and locally produced decorative items for sale in the Christmas Barn.

As the seasons change, so do the festivities at Hensler’s. This weekend you are invited to an early preview of Christmas at our Christmas Fest Open House. You didn’t think that just because Fall Fest is still going on that we wouldn’t also find time to host a pre-party for Christmas, did you?

Open House: Sunday, November 2nd 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. central time
