Each holiday season, we all begin looking for our Christmas trees. Some of us opt for the faux Christmas trees that we can buy at Target or Walmart, while others of us like to get those fresh, authentic Christmas trees that speak to us as soon as we see them. Within that group, there are also some of us who love to head to Christmas tree farms to cut down our own trees.
Living in the Philadelphia area, I’ve always loved finding family tree farms where you can have a holiday day trip to pick out and cut down your own Christmas tree. And what I love about a lot of the tree farms in the area is that many of them all have Christmas festivals where you can enjoy treats and activities with the family. So in that spirit, I’ve rounded up some top Christmas tree farms in the Philadelphia area.
