This past weekend I experienced a great event in the town of Agassiz. The Farm House Natural Cheeses, every year put on the 'Journey to Bethlehem' they act out the Christmas story with live animals, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and heavenly hosts. You follow along as they journey looking for a place to stay, right up to the shepards coming to see the King.
Dress warmly as it is all outside. Refreshments are offered after the play. Admission is by donations, raising money for goats in Haiti project. Their cheese shop is open late each evening this weekend too, so great time to get fresh cheese for entertaining this holiday season.
The cheese shop is open year-round and is part of the Agassiz/Harrison Mills Circle Farm Tour.
