There are a lot of things I loathe about growing up: Paying bills, buying wrinkle creams, hangovers and anything that requires lines of actually speaking on the phone (aint nobody got time for that.) Then there are other things I absolutely love, like creating my very own Christmas traditions. As a child my parents did Christmas BIG but the one thing we never did was visit a farm and cut down our very own tree. Geographically we weren’t close to any and economically Home Depot always delivered.
But, now that I live in an area booming with Christmas tree farms and Christmas spirit I have taken it upon myself to create the tradition of cutting down a tree with my own little family. There are plenty to choose from in the greater Nashville area and each delivers its own unique charm. I have complied a quick list that should serve a guide to finding the Christmas Tree Farm experience that suites your family best.
Christmas Tree Adventures: Hendersonville
Christmas Tree Adventures provides free Hot Chocolate and coloring books for kiddos. They have a manager scene, general store and other goodies for the family. My favorite part of this farm is the option to buy a tree in a pot. The purpose is to plant the tree after you have enjoyed it during the holidays! I love this idea!
Country Cove Christmas Tree Farm: Murfreesboro
I could paraphrase, but really their website says it all: “For your family Christmas tree, start or continue a tradition of cutting down your own tree (we supply the saw). Stroll our fields of White Pine and Leyland Cypress (great for allergy sufferers) and choose the perfect tree for your family.
If you prefer a pre-cut tree, we have our always-popular Fraser Firs from five feet up to twelve feet tall. Regardless of the tree you choose, we will shake, bale, load and securely fasten your tree to your vehicle (we supply the super-soft string, too).
For your additional Christmas decorating needs, stop by our wreath shop and select a custom-made wreath candle ring, and garland. We can use any combination of greens to make your wreath, swag, candle ring, or garland and each item can be customized with our great selection of bows and Christmas picks.
Come inside our beautiful Christmas shop and find a big selection of ornaments, gifts and tabletop decorations. We also have a free ornament personalization booth to create a custom look for your ornament.
And don't miss our complimentary hot cocoa and spiced apple cider at our refreshment bar. Also enjoy a leisurely hayride around the tree farm (bring a blanket for those extra-chilly days) and sit around the fire pit to warm up.”
Santa's Christmas Trees operates Christmas tree lots in the greater Nashville area. Each location offers premium Fraser fir trees, wreaths, garlands and other holiday greenery.
I love Santa’s Trees because of the various convenient locations. For my family, being in walking distance to restaurants ,shopping or a short car ride home if our little one decides not to bring his Christmas spirit is key! Here are the locations:
Additonally, Santa’s trees delivers! Santa's Trees offers custom home or office delivery and setup for your Christmas tree and accessories. They do the heavy lifting; you just string up the lights!
