As the nights grow long and snow quiets the air, gather for a Kinlands winter: lighting the dark with fire, hauling evergreens amidst the snow, warming your heart with companionship. Or simply come to observe and learn from wild winter as it is: a palette of whites and grays, a time to honor the need for rest, a chance to meet ourselves from a starker state of being.
The Shoppe in Winter
Revive chilled fingers against a warm beverage as you meander wintertime tools and treasures in our year-round shoppe. As the Earth rests, our bins hold root vegetables, cold-hardy greens, cabbages, and apples. The shelves are stocked with fresh yogurt, meats, pasta and sauces, simple syrups, and handmade caramels. Our shoppe grows cozy with warm caribou rugs, wreath-making kits, display-ready arrangements, and wilderness-inspired ornaments for hearth and tree. Filled with heirloom-quality items, the market is a restorative place to hunt for gifts both useful and imbued with whimsy: hand-felted children’s dolls, puzzles, leather bags, seasonal books, horsehair brushes, and heirloom antiques. You’ll also find journals, crystals, and herbal bath soaks to help you deepen into winter’s yawn and set intentions for the new year. We've selected each item with care, ensuring it carries the essence of The Kinlands, inviting you into deeper reverence for the season of winter.

Freshly Cut Trees
Wander our enchanting grove of freshly cut evergreens on a quest for the perfect tree, or ask our tree experts to show you directly to the tree that fits your vision. Whether you seek a large tree or a small one, a long-needled pine or a short-needled spruce, each of our lovingly-grown trees satisfies the ancient tradition of bringing greenery inside to cheer the spirit through the longest nights. We have trees from 2 feet tall to 20, and carry native balsam fir and pinyon pine, as well as noble and nordman firs with classic Christmas tree silhouettes. Come explore this winter woodland.
2022 dates coming soon.
Winter Spiral Experience
As the Earth spirals into darkness, nearly ready to begin its slow journey into light again, join us to honor the season of night and celebrate the flames that light it. Gather at the fire near the shoppe and await your wagon decked in evergreens. Deepen into the journey with a walk into the spiral pathway guided by little but a candle and the starry night. Let your inner light brighten as you trust your instincts to carry you. This 30-minute guided experience is great for all ages.
Stay tuned for 2022 dates.
Celebrate the season of sacred night, rekindling enchantment with this series of workshops leading up to the winter solstice. In these hands-on workshops, you’ll learn timeless skills and seasonal crafts for living a more well-connected life. Winter’s magic reveals itself through equal parts surrender and action — our efforts to balance the cold and dark are the very things that infuse the season with magic. In these joyful, community-centered workshops, you’ll remember the skills of our ancestors and learn to recognize the easily-overlooked gifts this season offers.
Animals in the Winter
Horses and goats might offer the most inspiration in winter, guiding us to remain fully present in the moment and in-tune with our inner spark. We offer two animal-based workshops — 4-Weeks in the Life of a Goat and 4-Weeks in the Life of a Horse — where you can connect with the spirit of your chosen guide, learning their nature and, in turn, uncovering your own place in the natural world. These unique experiences are imbued with the spirit of the season, and you’ll see how our animal guides make the most of winter’s sometimes-unexpected gifts: trust in nature to thicken their coats and their resolve, companions to stand near for warmth of body and spirit, gobbling winter stores of hay with joy, and soaking up any available sunshine by day.
