Six Christmas tree farms across the Upper Cumberland
NASHVILLE– There is nothing quite like going to the farm to pick out the perfect Christmas tree, but that’s not all you will find at the farm this year. With attractions like petting zoos, pictures with Santa and gift shops, farmers are creating magical outdoor adventures that are drawing visitors back year after year.
Erin’s Farm in Montgomery County offers free hot chocolate, hayrides, a toasty campfire to sit around, and a fun-filled gift shop. “We have a glass blowing studio set-up that runs the tree weekends following Thanksgiving,” owner Linda Hamm said. “Folks can blow their own ornament and pick it up the next day to remember their one-of-a-kind farm experience.”
Many Christmas tree farms will be open between Black Friday and Christmas Eve. Regardless of when you visit, local producers recommend you call for tree availability before you go.
“Visitors can purchase pre-cut trees, or they can get the full experience and cut their own,” Joseph Collins of Bluebird Christmas Tree Farm in Anderson County said. “We have trail paths around the farm, free hot chocolate and apple cider, and a gift shop with locally handmade items.”
If you’re not interested in a tree, you still have other on-the-farm decorating options. Lush, natural wreaths and garland for a home’s exterior are a perfect solution for those who want to enjoy aromatic holiday greenery. Many Christmas tree growers have special equipment for wreath and garland making, and they will work with customers to create the wreath that is the ideal variety and size.
Whether you’re hoping to create the picture-perfect wreath, take a hike along the trails or stroll through a gift shop, you will make extraordinary memories that will last a lifetime. So, catch the holiday spirt at a local Tennessee Christmas tree farm this season.
