Video captures the spirit of Cornish Wassail at Camel CSA

January 15, 2024

Our growing community gathered together on Sunday to bless Camel CSA’s young orchard in a traditional Cornish Wassail.

We joined in playing music, singing, dancing, and making a din to wake the trees from their winter slumber, to encourage a bountiful harvest, and to frighten away any bad spirits.

Traditional Cornish tunes soon got fingers and toes tapping as families with young children joined in on their percussion instruments.

This is the second year that Camel CSA’s held its Wassail at Treraven Farm. It’s fast become one of our annual community celebrations alongside the autumn Apple Day and summer barbeque.
