By theFUNnelCakeBlog | Nov 16, 2021
Join theFUNnelCakeBlog on a whimsical ride to Santa's wonderland at 123 Farm featuring festive food and drinks, unique gifts from an organic lavender farm and more! We were wowed by the display of a million lights that dazzle the lavender fields, olive groves and buildings. The festive food and drinks were DELICIOUS and we and shopped for organic gifts at the marketplace, and the Christmas Village at the Organic Galleries. This was our first visit to 123 Farm at the Highland Springs Resort & Inn, but it will not the last. This will be an annual holiday tradition, and we already cannot wait to attend their other festivals and event. Check it out!
