The experience of choosing and cutting your own Christmas tree to take home and decorate is the start to a wonderful holiday season! We’re fortunate that here in Western North Carolina we have many Christmas tree farms to visit and find the perfect tree. What a fun family event to take part in! Here is a list of a few of the farms that you can visit to find the best tree.
Frosty Mountain Christmas Trees is located in Marshall, NC just outside of North Asheville and not far from Ventana. Visit the serene and quiet landscape of the farm in search of the tree that’s the perfect size and shape for you. You can choose and cut your own Frasier Fir tree and take home a fresh wreath or garland as well.
At Sandy Hollar Tree Farm in Leicester, NC you can even take a wagon ride and see the farm and the animals that live there. The Christmas shop has wreaths, and handmade items, some made from products from the farm. The snack shack is open on weekends, as are the wagon rides.
Another local farm to visit to pick your own tree is called Dutch Cove Christmas Tree Farm. Dutch Cove is located in Canton, North Carolina which isn’t far drive outside of Asheville.
Nesbitt Christmas Tree Farm in Clyde, NC is typically a “choose and cut” farm, but they sold a lot of trees early this year and they currently only have pre-cut trees. They’re typically open during the week.
Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree Farm is located in the quaint mountain town of Waynesville, NC past the town of Clyde. The farm is open Fridays through Sundays during the season. You can expect easy paved access, free refreshments, and maybe even a visit from Santa himself! The hospitality tent includes fresh wreaths, ropes, tree stands, and holiday retail items. Leashed dogs are welcome as well!
For a unique in-home experience, Santa Claus will actually deliver a tree to your home through Santa Delivers Tree Company. What a treat for your family!
