And it wasn't a reindeer, instead, it was a John Deere. Santa made his annual arrival at Stokoe Farms today, but this year he said he wanted to do something a little different. So he made his way in on a farm combine!

Despite the change of plans, families were still excited to get to be there for the big guy's arrival.

Owen Fitzsimmons said, “I think it's great that he's here even though he couldn't skydive."

Trevor Ftizsimmons said,: "He goes around the world delivering toys in one night."

Suzanne Stokoe, owner, said, "He's been skydiving in and he says you know I’ve done that enough so in honor of our 200th year of farming here at Stokoe farms and actually our 25th year of selling Christmas trees, he said he wanted to do something different and what more appropriate than coming in on a big combine.

Stokoe Farms is celebrating 200 years of farming this year.
