Make Holiday Memories Year After Year at Shady Brook Farm

New This Year: Breakfast with Santa & Choirs in the Greenhouse

This year will mark the 25th year of the Holiday Light Show at Shady Brook Farm. The annual celebration of driving or taking a wagon ride down the 2-mile trail lined with more than 3 million lights in familiar displays. Get your picture with Santa or cook up some s’mores at one of the bonfires afterward; Shady Brook has everything you dream of to make your holiday season complete. 

Shady Brook Farm has been a staple in our area for more than 100 years. The family-owned farm got its start in 1913 and continues to be one of the last working farms in historic Bucks County. Dave Fleming is part of the fourth-generation owners that include his brother Paul and sister Amy. Their parents, Dave Sr. and Bev, also own and operate the beautiful Rose Bank Winery in Newtown.

Shady Brook Farm’s goal is to enhance its guests’ farm experience while promoting homemade and locally produced goods. The farm is fully committed to preserving farming as a way of life through education and a ton of wonderful events. 

This holiday season, Shady Brook is adding an extra element to its Santa experience: breakfast with Santa. Create memories that will last a lifetime while enjoying a festive meal with Santa himself and capturing an image of your child with Santa. Dine on French toast, omelets, bacon, sausage, potatoes, bagels, toast, English muffins, fresh fruit, juice, milk, coffee and hot chocolate. There will even be a cash bloody mary bar for the adults. They really think of everything and everyone!

Shady Brook opened its pub, The Stone’s Throw, two years ago in October 2017. They named it “The Stone’s Throw” because everything they serve is from a stone’s throw away. The cozy pub serves locally crafted beer and wines from Bucks County and signature cocktails made with Pennsylvania spirits. The Stone’s Throw has the perfect historic local feel. Reclaimed pieces of wood from around Shady Brook were used to create the bar and countertop with a lot of wood coming from the Carriage House dating back to the 1800s. They even added outdoor tables for a beer garden atmosphere and have Winter unWINEd Concerts. The Stone’s Throw is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the week and from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

The Holiday Light Show runs through Jan. 5, 2020.
