Visit Flat Iron Farm

There’s also time to see the Flat Iron Farm Christmas Village & Light Display.

The light display traditionally runs every night through New Year’s Eve. Visitors can turn into the farm off Flat Iron Road, tune their radios to 88.7, and watch the lights dance to the music through a drive Bubby Knott and his Great Mills Trading Post crews have turned into a magical ride into the Christmas season. The synchronized music and light displays are extraordinary and extensive. It’s a drive through Flat Iron Farm not to be forgotten. Exotic animals graze on the grounds amid the grand, computerized lighting events.

Make this tour part of your Southern Maryland holiday tradition at the farm at 45840 Flat Iron Road (off of Route 5) in Great Mills. Call 301-994-0300.
