Creating memories, giving thoughtful gifts and enjoying good food are all part of our holiday seasons. For two weekends in December, Heifer International hosts the annual Celebration of Living Gifts where the public is invited into our barns to meet our animals and learn about how Heifer International uses livestock and training around the globe to help families in poverty to become self-reliant. Purchase Alternative Gifts and take home a special gift card or photo to share. Take a wintery trip to China or Poland by hopping on Heifers Global Village hay wagon where crackling woodstoves and old-fashioned craft-making await your family. Warm yourself with hot chestnuts at our bonfire or come inside for homemade soup and rolls, baked goods and hot cocoa. Before you go, decorate a gingerbread cookie or stop in our Shop@Heifer for fairly-traded gift items, books, jewelry, and Heifer items. No charge - Donation of canned goods requested. All canned goods will be donated to the Worcester County Food Bank.

Cost: Free Event; donations of canned goods for local food bank accepted

Suggested Audiences: Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Elementary, Middle School, High School, College, Adult, Elders
