We will open for tree sales on November 29th, 2013!
We open on November 29th, 2013 at 9:00am - the day after Thanksgiving. We will then be open Saturdays and Sundays, 9am until dark, weekdays, 12 noon until dark. If you need or want to get your tree earlier, feel free to call or email and we'll make every effort to accomodate your schedule. Note that we have a huge selection of very tall Blue Spruce this year, up to 14' tall! Be sure to check our webpage for updates and our yet to be determined closing date.
We invite you to our family friendly farm where you can choose and cut your own Christmas Tree at your leisure. We provide saws to cut your tree, a rope to help pull it back to the sales barn, friendly instruction on where to find your tree, a beautiful setting on the slope of the Blue Ridge from which to view the Loudoun Valley below, complimentary hot spiced cider and wreaths for sale from our own greens. Included in your tree purchase, we shake your tree clean and bale it tight for easy transport. We have plenty of heavy duty twine to help tie your tree to your vehicle, but BUNGEE CORDS or other tie-down straps are strongly recommended! Kids love the opportunity to run around the trees and have free form fun! We also sell multi-purpose cam straps that are excellent for tying a tree to your car top and many other uses.
Our specialty trees for 30 years have been Mountain Slow Grown Douglas Fir and Colorado Blue Spruce, and we have thousands of each to choose from up to 10 feet, with many taller. We also have a great selection of fragrant Mountain Slow Grown Norway Spruce.
All of our Mountain Slow Grown Douglas Fir, Norway Spruce and Colorado Blue Spruce up to 7 feet are the same price, taller trees are priced at the sales barn. Click on the "Prices/Map" link to the left for our current year farm map and pricing information.
We have some very tall trees this year, up to 14 feet! Ask at the barn or the red Parking Shack for details on where to best start the hunt for the big boys.
Simple - after parking, get a map either from our staff at the parking lot or up at the sales barn. At the sales barn we will give you a saw and rope and some complimentary hot cider before you head out to find your Christmas tree. Once you find and cut down your tree, bring it back to the sales barn where we will tag your tree with your initials, then shake your tree clean, bale it tight for easy transport, and price it for you. In the sales barn we have a variety of local goods for sale as well as our wreaths made on-site from our own greens. Once you've purchased your tree and any other items, we'll load up your tree and take everyone & their trees back down to the parking area, or you can walk it down yourself.

Yes, so long as they stay on leash and you clean up after your friend.
When you arrive at the farm, we provide you with a map of the farm, a saw to cut down your tree and a rope to help pull your tree; you are welcome to bring your own saw. Chain saws, saws-alls, hatchets and axes are expressly prohibited.
Yes, we have a large gravel based parking area, as well as an expanse of grassy areas where you are free to relax with friends and family. You are welcome to bring coolers.
Bring gloves to handle your tree, and warm clothing as necessary... the weather and particularly snow conditions can vary significantly from what exists in the city. Bungee cords or tie-down straps make it extremely easy to secure your tree to your vehicle in a few minutes. Some people like to bring a plastic tarp on which to pull their tree, it ensures a smoother, cleaner ride for the tree.
We have a large gravel based parking area for easy parking and access to your car regardless of weather. If snow is in the forecast and you have All-Wheel or 4-Wheel drive, please bring that vehicle to make movement into the farm more easy and guarantee smooth travel to, from and within the farm.
No, we do not allow any vehicles into any of the fields at any time.
If you come during the week, we can accommodate single moms and seniors in need of assistance in finding, cutting and bringing your tree to the sales barn. On weekends, we are not able to assist.
If you can come during the week, we are not as busy and some families with small children and other adults enjoy the quiet atmosphere. We stay open until dark every day, so families can come to the farm after school with plenty of time to select a tree. Historically, the first weekend in December is our busiest time.
Your tree will easily last through New Year's Day if you give it plenty of water! If you are not going to set up your tree for several days or longer after bringing it home, put it into water in a cool spot out of direct sunlight. If your tree is not put into water for several hours after cutting, just before you set it up, cut about one inch off of the trunk to allow the vascular system of the tree to absorb water. We recommend using only water, no additives. Recent research indicates that continuously leaving on white LED christmas tree lights can increase needle retention on your tree.
Depending on weather, the type of tree, and the height, anywhere from 8-14 years. We plant the trees as either 3 or 4 year old seedlings, have the kids count the rings on the trunk to determine it's age!
We provide complimentary local hot spiced cider.
Finn and Charlotte Wolff offer delicious hot dogs and hot soft pretzels at Finn's Snack Shack near the main barn, and they also have cider, candy bars, peanuts and soft drinks for sale. Don't forget to visit The Shack!
Yes, we have portable restrooms.
We accept cash, personal check and Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Square Wallet.
