It’s no secret Lambs Farm has had a very busy year with all the 50th Anniversary activities, but at a time when most organizations are slowing down and taking stock of the year that has passed, Lambs Farm is going full-steam ahead with a range of holiday activities.
The Country Store & Bakery was awash in flour, sugar, butter, chocolate and all sorts of sweet goodies that we produce every year for our gift catalog. The addition of our new production equipment in the Country Store has helped increase our capacity and reduce our production time – critical during our busiest time of year.
Forgot to order your Lambs Farm gifts this year? Don’t worry – you can always send cookies or chocolates to family and friends to wish them a “sweet” New Year.
In addition to catalog orders, the Country Store & Bakery also makes all of our items for the Holiday Lights Gift & Craft Fair at Arlington Park Racecourse. Thousands of people flocked to the annual event to find holiday gifts, winter-themed and holiday decor, jewelry, and food items. After perusing three floors and hundreds of vendors, shoppers stopped at the Lambs Farm booth to pick up large gourmet cookies or chocolates for the road in addition to easy-to-give gift items such as tins of cookies, jam, chocolates and more.
This year we welcomed volunteers from the Westin North Shore and Benefit Express, in addition to volunteer staff and Participants. If you’re interested in volunteering at the Spring Craft Fair, please contact Angela Ramert at 847.990.3864 or email her here.
Once again Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit Lambs Farm for a hearty breakfast and holiday fun. Lambs Farm’s Breakfast with Santa provided children and families the opportunity to put in one last request for that special toy or game, or to ensure Santa that they’ve been “mostly good” all year long and should not be overlooked on Christmas. Children could also create crafts, and left with a small gift from the jolly man himself.
