One of the quintessential holiday activities is picking out the perfect Christmas tree. If you prefer the time-honored tradition of cutting down your own, these are the places to go:
The Wildes is located in Trafalgar and offers a holiday experience complete with Christmas trees, live music and warm drinks. Tickets are $125 per car (includes a tree) or $55 (without a tree). This year, they’ll be open for two Saturdays: Nov. 26 and Dec. 3, both from 2 to 6 p.m.
You’ll find Peiffer Tree Farm in Trafalgar as well. They offer both cut and uncut trees and fresh wreaths. Stop by starting on Thanksgiving Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., then 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on November 25 and every weekend in December while supplies last.
Trees from DeHart is another local favorite. Here you can cut your own tree and top off the experience with hot chocolate, wagon rides and a meal from the food truck. The farm is located in Nineveh and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from dusk to dark. Opening weekend is Nov. 25 to 27 and they'll be open every weekend after until Christmas.
Located in Franklin, Jenkins Farm Market is known for their produce, market and corn maze scavenger hunt in the fall, but in the winter it's a great place to buy pre-cut trees as well as fresh, handmade wreaths, festive decorations and more. They’re open every day from November 19 through Christmas Eve.
