2019 INFO, NOT 2020
Christmas at the Farm is coming back to Denton Valley Farms for another Christmas Season! We are a privately owned family farm located just a few minutes outside of Abilene. The farm will be open to the public every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (and a few more weekdays) beginning November 29th through December 31st. The entire farm is transformed into a winter wonderland with a family friendly atmosphere. The highlight of Christmas at the Farm is our huge light display, unlike anything the Big Country has ever seen before! We incorporate the latest technology into our display, which includes custom built, one-of-a-kind elements that can be seen nowhere else. Guests can bring a blanket and snuggle with their families as they hop on one of our many hayride trailers and travel through our incredible display. Santa himself will be at the farm every night to visit. We have food trucks, live music, and performances by local church and school choirs. There are also tons of indoor activities and shopping opportunities for the entire family to enjoy while staying warm. You can also warm up with some hot chocolate or hot apple cider as you roast your own smores! Come on out with your family and create new holiday memories as we all celebrate the most wonderful time of the year- Texas Style!
Farm store CLOSED UNTIL SPRING
We want to say thank you to all of our loyal customers as we come upon this holiday season.
We have had lots of messages, calls, and emails asking about Christmas at The Farm.......
We had to make that difficult decision several months ago during the summer. We made a huge investment to more than double our Christmas light display this past offseason. Completing the display for 2020 would have required an additional tens of thousands of dollars, and thousands of hours of labor. Our concern was not knowing what the State and Local government leaders would decide to do. If we invest all of this money into Christmas at the Farm and the Local government shuts us down, then it would be devastating for the future of our farm. We are just a small family farm that is completely privately owned and privately funded by us. We receive zero tax dollars and zero tax breaks to put on our Christmas at the Farm event for the Big Country to enjoy.
Many of our customers already know that some of our Local government leaders attempted to shut us down in April, so what is to stop them from trying it again in December? So, it is with great sadness that we announce Christmas at the Farm will not take place in 2020. Saddest of all is the loss of 40+ local jobs during this Christmas season.
We know of non-profit and private/non-profit partnership Christmas events that plan to continue to open as normal, but they have no risk involved as they are funded with our tax dollars, use volunteer workers, and take advantage of tax free benefits. They also have support from local government officials who will certainly try to let them remain open. It is simply too large of a risk for our family owned business to take this year.
However, we will be coming back stronger and bigger than ever next Christmas season as we complete these one-of-a-kind, custom built light projects we have started. We guarantee you will love our 2021 plans for Christmas at The Farm!
We were blessed with a great fall season and were glad we got to share the fall festivities at the farm with most of you! We are proud of our positive economic impact on The Big Country and sad that Local and State politics can have such a negative impact on any privately owned small business. Unfortunately, that is the case this year, and again, a risk our family can not afford to take.
You don’t have to wait an entire year to come see us again though as we will still be opening up in the Spring as normal for pick your own strawberries and Easter weekend festivities. Farm fresh air and good produce is something to look forward to for spring 2021.
God bless your families and we hope you all stay safe this holiday season....... we cannot wait for 2021 to get here!
