Pinecone Cottage Tea House – Thanksgiving Tasting Tea Buffet

November 12, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

With warmth I present this unique opportunity to share the dishes I savored last November at Hurd Orchards 37th Annual Thanksgiving Tasting in their 100-year-old barn. Our holiday buffet tables will be festive with autumnal bouquets and richly laden with delectable homemade savories and sweets. Candles will be glowing as we fill the Tea House with autumn color and aromas. What a wonderful way to start the holiday season with friends and family! Don’t miss this truly unique culinary experience!
