Frosty windows, cool days, crunching leaves, early sunsets and the aroma of Thanksgiving dinner… that must mean it’s time for Christmas trees — my favorite time of year.
We will be opening up our farm for cut-your-own Christmas trees during the two weekends following Thanksgiving: Saturday & Sunday, November 27th & 28th and December 4th & 5th, from 9AM to 4PM. We may optionally be open on Saturday, December 11th as a snow day if we have bad weather on the earlier weekends, so call us or check in on our website.
There will be cider & cocoa, plus s’mores around the campfire. (Bring your own hot dogs!)
Opening up the farm for families to enjoy our place and pick out a tree is always a joy. I spend so much time here, and love the land so much, it’s nice to share it. But, this time of year also marks the close of the season; my work on the farm winds down as winter sets in. Sure, it’s a brief respite since sugaring season picks up in two months, but it’s a break nonetheless. For me, these weekends are about taking a breath, but also about a catching up that nicely weaves into the holidays. It’s a time to sit by the fire, see old friends and share a drink(s). So, even if you don’t need a fresh local tree because you have a sentimental attachment to the fake one you grew up around, that’s alright, c’mon by anyway and have a cider so we can catch up.
Third Stone Farm is a cut your own Christmas tree farm. We’re serious about sustainability. We’re organic and we put a lot of energy into being as green as we can be, both on the farm and at home. Buy your Christmas tree from the family that grows them and support local agriculture.
