Cut Your Own Christmas Tree Farms
Grab your gloves, your ropes, and your coat and go find the perfect Christmas tree! An expedition to a Christmas tree farm is fun for the whole family. Never done it before? Don't worry, most of the farms will cheerfully lend you a helping hand every step of the way.
The farms in this roundup have a wide selection of trees, but it is always wise to call ahead to be sure inclement weather or unexpected crowds have not depleted the stock or if the farmer's business conditions have changed. This is especially important if you are looking for a specific tree or if you are tree-hunting close to Christmas. Take the time to check which family attractions or Winter activities are available.
