NEPM: Ioka Valley Farm


Missy Leab from Ioka Valley Farm in Hancock joins Monte, Kaliis, and Jacob to talk about: 

  • The magic that awaits families who visit to cut their own Christmas trees.
  • How they evolved from a dairy farm in the 90s to a year-round destination for fun on the farm, from maple sugaring and pancake breakfasts to pick-your-own pumpkins. 
  • Some of your burning questions about Christmas trees: different kinds, how they grow, and how to keep them fresh and happy in your home (we do some myth-busting too ?)

Ioka Valley Farm is open for cut-your-own trees weekends 9:30 – 4:30 until Christmas. Their gift shop is also open Fridays 12:00 – 4:00 with pre-cut trees available. This weekend, December 2nd & 3rd they’ll host a pancake breakfast from 8 – 12 with a special visitor: Santa! ??
