 Creating Holiday Memories Loudoun County Style

Cut-Your-Own Christmas Tree Farms

Yes, cutting down your own Christmas tree is a tradition found all over the country, but I think Loudoun County celebrates this tradition best (I swear, I’m not biased!). Loudoun County is home to several family owned, locally grown, Christmas tree farms, each offering their own unique experience. My husband and I loved sharing this tradition with our two daughters. It's a family memory that we hold dear to our hearts. We would start the day piling in our car, toasty warm in our winter coats, boots, gloves, and hats! The day would end with excitement over finding the perfect Christmas tree, drinking hot chocolate, and returning home to decorate the tree with our favorite ornaments.  

It’s that time of year to get into the holiday spirit!  Why not create your own holiday tradition and memories by visiting one of the Loudoun County cut-your-own Christmas Tree Farms listed below. Take Note: be sure to call before going to confirm business hours and availability
