The holiday season is upon us! Any recommendations on where to get a locally grown Christmas Tree? Any fun places to go with the family to choose/cut your own?

  • Tonya Lemos recommends: Pieropans Tree Farm in Ashfield! Our fav.
  • Kate Erickson recommends: Cranstons in Ashfield – it seems like it always snows when we go! Fletcher Family Farm in Southampton off Rt 10 is great too! Plus they have cows and everything!
  • Tricia Sayre recommends: Justamere Tree Farm in Worthington … beautiful farm and trees!
  • Arianna Alexsandra Grindrod recommends: Cranston Tree Farm in Ashfield. They are on Baptist Corner Rd.
  • Andrew Garcia recommends: Itty Bitty Tree Farm in Windsor.
  • Jody Hadden recommends: “West Mountain Rd. in Cheshire – about 1 mile up on right – new family owed cut your own tree farm – beautiful tress $35 – $40 – great service too!! – Belongs to the parents of a kid that used to be on my bus! I love supporting new local businesses – especially those of people I know – they are a great family!”
  • Diane Hinze Kanzler recommends: “Emerson Family Tree Farm on Bernardston Rd., Greenfield. They sell awesome eggs, too, and the gift shop is charming.”
  • Jude McGowan recommends: “Northeast Tree Farm in N. Hatfield (Depot Rd.). They cut ‘um, shake um’ (to get the dead needles out), bale um’ and put them on your car! Great longtime family business! This was my 22nd year!”
  • Jody Hadden recommends: “The one on West Mountain Rd. shakes and bags them too – first time I ever saw a shaker – it was pretty cool and helps when you get it home to not have a ton of needles and debris all over your floor.”

The Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture writes, “Buy local… Christmas trees and holiday decorations!  Locally grown trees, wreaths, roping, and cemetery boxes are available now at farms and farm stands across the Valley. Make a family excursion of choosing and cutting a tree, or pick one that’s all ready to go. Either way, local trees, wreaths and greenery are fresh and long-lasting, and they smell good, too. Decorate your house while feeling good about your carbon footprint and your support for the local economy! See our list of local farms that sell holiday greenery.”

    Emerson Family Tree Farm on Rt 5/10 in Bernardston- hay rides out to cut your own tree, if you find the hidden dwarf you get $5 off (kids love to hunt for it), then warm up with some popcorn, cookies and hot cider in their warming hut/gift shop.

    Since moving to the Berkshires, I always get my tree at Noble Farms at 356, East New Lenox Road in Pittsfield. It’s a family farm, and every year, the first tree I pick up turns out to be the perfect tree.

    They not only wrap and trim the trunk of the tree, but if you live fairly close by, they will deliver the tree right to your door.
