Christmas at the Farm at Shepherd’s Cross

Experience a shepherd’s Christmas at an authentic working farm, nestled inside a cozy Amish-built barn. Step back in time and journey with the shepherds for a peaceful reflection upon the original Christmas night, when Christ was born.

Indoor activities include a living manger scene, with live animals and character portrayals, musical performances, storytelling, all-new “A Shepherd’s Christmas” audio-visual story, bird feeder craft, coloring contest, tabletop games, the educational Farm Museum and Silo, fiber arts demonstrations, and Farm Shop.

Outdoor activities include winter yard games, Christmas lights, wagon rides, tours of the Bible Garden, and sheep and alpacas reminiscent of the first Christmas pastoral scene.

Enjoy a peaceful moment of reflection as this age-old scriptural story springs to life in the Living Nativity. 

Final Manger Scene for the evening begins at 7:15. 

Plan on spending 1 – 2 hours for this Christmas experience.

Christmas at the Farm will proceed even in the case of inclement weather.
