Exactly one year ago I was waxing poetically (well, maybe not poetically) about how much we love cutting down our Christmas tree each year at the Beverly Tree Farm.
This year was no different.
With a gorgeous red “barn”, a roaring fire, cider, hot chocolate, Christmas Cookies, holiday decorations, the friendliest staff going, and beautiful decorations, our time there each year screams Warm Fuzzies.
To some, the trees may seem pricey at $90 each, but the experience of living the good cheer, walking the fields, searching for THE ONE, sawing it down, and tagging it is honestly, truly priceless.
Another thing that you should know, is that every penny over the expenses of operating the tree farm goes to a worthy charity. Over $110,000 has been gifted in just the four short years that the Bertolon family has been running the farm. This year’s charity is the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salem.
This year we spent a good hour searching for our perfect tree. CERTAINLY not because there were not hundreds of good options, but simply because it was fun to take our time.
We went on Saturday after gaining confidence that the rain was over. In talking to the owners we learned that more than 450 trees had been sold on Friday. Which, they also pointed out, was one tree every 48 seconds!
Sadly, if you are feeling inspired to go find the tree that speaks to you, you only have one more day to do so. With so many fans, friends, and returning customers the tree farm sells out quickly. They plan on being open Saturday, December 5th but that just may be the end of the season! Please check the link above to be certain.
