The orchard-visiting wassail refers to the ancient custom of visiting orchards in cider-producing regions of England, reciting incantations and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the coming year. So make sure that you have your favorite song ready to sing into the trees.
Help us ensure that we have a good harvest by coming out and Wassailing the orchard with us!
