Vermont Christmas Trees
Trees 5'-8' tall are $46 plus tax.
Since 1986, we’ve sold choose and cut trees from our family farm in Middlebury. Our knowledgeable staff of elves is happy to help with tree selection and tying trees on cars.
RETURNING IN 2021: Our Christmas shop has complementary cookies and hot cocoa during weekend hours. We are happy to turn on our G scale model train or take guests to visit Twister the Christmas pony.
For our customers who prefer the convenience of a precut tree, we keep our racks stocked with fresh, Vermont grown trees. We maintain several fields of trees up in the mountains of Lincoln, VT where most of our precuts come from. The rest come from other tree growers in the New Hampshire/Vermont Christmas Tree Association. This allows us to ensure that our precut trees are fresh and were grown with the same care and expertise as the trees in our choose & cut fields.
Choose and cut trees of any size are $46 plus tax. The tree farm elves are always happy to answer your questions or lend a hand, and when you return with your tree we are happy to bale it for you, and then help you get it into or tied down on top of your car. Choose and cut fields close at 4:00.
Below you can find a brief description and pictures of the varieties of Christmas trees we offer to help you decide which kind is best for your family. Additionally, we have small numbers of exotic and unusual conifers.
A Balsam sub-species from the Canaan Valley in West Virginia. They are emerald green and have slightly longer needles than a balsam. They tolerate both our clay soils and late spring freezes quite well, making them ideal for growing in the Champlain valley.
Sometimes called Fralsams, this hybrid typically combines the best traits of both fir species. Only available as cut-your-own on weekends, these trees typically sell out by mid-December.
Fraser fir are a popular alternative to balsam fir. While they lack the strong fragrance of a balsam, their strong branches and dense needles make for an attractive tree.
Blue Spruce are a beautiful shade of blue with stiff needles. They have strong branches, making them an excellent choice for heavy ornaments. Their stiff, prickly needles are very useful for keeping pets from climbing on them.
Trees have short, stiff needles and a very distinctive fragrance. Like the Blue Spruce, they are an excellent choice for people with pets who like to climb trees. If you like the look of natural pine cones on your tree, this is the tree for you.
