Reindeer Quest – Chestnut Hill Farm, Chestnut Hill Road, Southborough. Daily through mid-January. Get the family outside to discover our elusive herd of wooden reindeer, found throughout the farm trails. See how many you can find – along the way, snap some photos and share on social media with #reindeerquest and #chestnuthillfarm.

This is a free, self-guided program; take a stroll around the farm to find all nine of our wooden reindeer. Chestnut Hill and its trails are open sunrise to sunset every day. Sorry, no dogs.
