Starting the weekend after Thanksgiving, all area tree farms are ready to help you find your perfect tree. Walk among the rows to find just the right height, width, and type! Local farms specialize in the well-loved Frasier Fir, but you can also find White Pine and Blue Spruce trees, wreaths, and garlands at farms in the High Country.
Visiting a tree farm is an event, and many have other attractions like hayrides, plus hot chocolate & cider, too! At Big Ridge and What Fir! tree farms, even Santa makes appearances. Panoramic View Christmas Tree farm features horses and cows that love to be fed and pet by visitors. Circle C farm has a sweet Christmas Shop where you can find goodies and ornaments. Don’t forget about decorating with lovely fresh wreathes and garland like those available from Appalachian Evergreens. There are SO many more farms in the area! See the Watauga Christmas Tree Farms directory and map to see those closest to Blowing Rock. Or, take a look at the NC Christmas Trees website and select the amenities and attractions that interest you and your family, and pick a farm to visit based on your preferences. The site even provides mapping so you can select one close to the High Country area you’re visiting. Once there, walk or ride through the farm to find your favorite tree, and the folks at the farm will have it cut, baled, and secured to your vehicle, fresh and ready for your trip home!
Blowing Rock makes a great base for enjoying a choose & cut holiday. Lots of local inns make it easy for you to turn your holiday trip into a tree-hunting adventure. Just ask them about Christmas Tree packages. Of course, while in Blowing Rock, enjoy great shopping (with one-of-a-kind gifts around every corner), varied dining, and fun outdoor activities.
Plan a trip today and continue or start a fantastic tradition!
