What forms of payment do you accept?
We gladly accept cash and all major credit cards. Unfortunately we are no longer able to accept checks.
What is the weather like?
Our farm is located in the mountains of north Carolina, so this time of year it can be a bit brisk outside. The typical temperate around thanksgiving ranges from the mid 20s to low 30s in the early morning with temperatures getting up to the low 40s as the sun continues to rise.
What if it snows?
Is the farm still open?
Unless we receive a very heavy snow that makes roads impassable to even seasoned locals we will be open. Stay tuned to our facebook for updates when snow is forecast. As you can see from some of our pictures there is nothing more magical then seeing all of the Christmas trees after a fresh snowfall.Can my car make it?
If your car has four wheel drive then you should have no problem making it to the farm. Vehicles with front wheel drive should have all-season or snow tires on with good tread life left. Rear wheel drive only vehicles are not advised to attempt during times of heavy snow. The area most cars experience difficulty is exiting the drive of the farm due to a slight uphill pitchWhat is the road like?
The road back to the farm is a small two lane road with several low speed turns, and only minor elevation changes with a couple small bridges that are prone to icing during times of winter precipitation. The road runs through a valley between mountains.
What should we wear?
Christmas trees grow on mountain sides so plan to wear comfortable shoes with a bit of tread on them. Unless you are hoping to anchor yourself to the mountain high heels are not recommended. As clothing goes; layers are recommended. While you may be a bit cold when you arrive you may warm up by the time you finish picking out your tree. Three piece suits are not required. It is always a good idea to bring a hat and gloves with you. We do occasionally experience a strong brisk breeze through the valley.
Can I bring my dog?
Sure! We love animals and there is plenty of room to roam. You should bring a leash just in case there are other animals visiting at the same time.
Do I have to cut the tree?
How good are your lumberjack skills? As promised before you do not have to be a professional logger; although some of our annual visitors are. We will cut your tree, transport it back to your vehicle, and assist with loading it.
Can I cut the tree?
Unfortunately due to insurance regulations we are not able to allow our guests to cut their own trees.
What do the colored ribbons on the trees mean?
The ribbons are mainly used for inventory and planning purposes. Some of the ribbons have been in the trees longer than others, so they shouldn't be used to estimate the size of the tree.
Are real trees messy?
Not as long as you take them through the car wash on the way home - kidding! With simple proper care you should have very little needle loss from your tree. The most important thing - keep your tree watered!
