It’s that time of year! I’m sure some of you hurried out, the day after Thanksgiving, and got your tree as soon as possible; for those who haven’t, here’s a list of great local farms, shops and lots where you can pick one up. The places with an asterisk are participating in Trees For Troops, Friday, Dec 2 – Sunday, Dec 4th. There are tons of great spots here, but I’ll be right up front about my bias and start off with my favorite place…

A few farms are closed on Sunday, also the choose and cut your own fields sometimes close down earlier than the farm itself, so be sure to call before you go to confirm that they are open and still have a good supply of trees. Happy hunting!
