UPPER CUMBERLAND — Christmas trees are not the only draw to some of Tennessee’s tree farms.
“The best reason to visit a local Christmas tree farm is to make great memories,” Tennessee Department of Agriculture Marketing Specialist Clay Dunivan said. “People have so much fun being outdoors at a farm during the holiday season. Friends and families can enjoy a wagon ride through the trees, drink hot chocolate or cider, see Santa Claus, take a holiday crafts class, and even make their own wreaths and garland – with the help of the farmer, of course.”
Even if you don’t plan to purchase a tree from a farm, farmers work hard to make a visit a holiday experience that will draw visitors year after year. The addition of petting zoos, gift shops and other attractions assure that customers go home planning to return next year.
The Pick Tennessee website and the Pick Tennessee mobile app offer a directory of 58 Christmas tree farms across the state. Four are located in Upper Cumberland counties, including:
