Christmas is under two weeks away. Have you yet to find the perfect Christmas tree? Just outside of Middlebury, VT you will find a tree farm where we guarantee you will find the most perfect Christmas tree for your home. The Werner Christmas Tree Farm is run by the Werner family, a group of people passionate and dedicated to providing gorgeous, fresh, Vermont-grown trees.
They open their “choose & cut” farm the Friday after Thanksgiving and are open Tuesdays-Fridays from 12-5pm and weekends from 10am-5pm. You can go out on your own and find your tree or take advantage of one of the “elves” hanging around who would be happy to act as a guide and assist you. They have racks stocked full of trees from the three fields of trees they maintain in Lincoln VT, or from other Vermont tree growers. So, if a precut tree is what you need – they will have plenty to choose from. Varieties of trees include Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir, Canaan Fir, Blue Spruce, and White Spruce.
They have a wonderful little Christmas shop where you can enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and cookies on the weekend and they also sell Vermont maple syrup, maple cream, maple candy, and honey. They sell beautiful handmade wreaths, garlands, kissing balls, and other greenery as well. For the little ones, they have a G scale model train and ponies to visit next door.
Cut your own trees are $42 and pre-cut trees range from $42-$50. When you are ready to go they will bail your tree and help you load it or tie it down to the top of your car. Visit their website for more information. Happy tree hunting!
