The trustees of Tattersall Farm, located at 542 North Broadway, Haverhill, will host their annual "Christmas at the Farm House" open house from noon-4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8, and Sunday, Dec. 9.

The public is invited to visit the farmhouse to experience a New England Christmas as it may have been celebrated during the 1950s when the Tattersalls lived on the farm. Attendees have an opportunity to learn about New England farm life and its cultural and historical influence on the City of Haverhill.

Bakers of all ages may submit decorated gingerbread houses for judging in several categories—including for young bakers—with prizes awarded. Kimball Farm offers hayrides from noon-3 p.m. and attendees may enter for a chance to win raffle prizes throughout the afternoon. Santa is also stopping by.

Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door. Children 12 and under visit free when accompanied by an adult.
