Find local Christmas tree farms here!

Whether you want to cut your own tree, pick a live tree and have it cut for you, buy a tree already cut or buy a living tree you can plant, this page provides detailed listings of Fredericksburg,  Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia's choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms, places to buy pre-cut (also called pre-harvested and fresh-cut) trees, stands, sleigh rides, hay rides and related winter events and fun. Some listings are for tree farms, others are tree lots, and some only offer hay rides, sleigh rides or other winter events. READ EACH LISTING to know what each facility offers. The farms are listed further down this page, so scroll down the page! Since this service is free and open to ALL Christmas tree farms, not just those who belong to an association or pay for an ad, like almost all other websites do, this is the most complete and current listing available! I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any, please email me!

Tips:

  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.  All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here!
    DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM BY PHONE OR EMAIL!
  • The dates indicate when I last received an update, no date means it may be years old!
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Fredericksburg,  Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!

    Comments from a visitor on December 14, 2014: "Went to Whispering Pines Tree Farm today (Sunday, December 14th) and they still had A LOT of trees to choose from. They have a few pre-cut trees up front by the office, but the majority is you choose and cut (or they can cut for you after you choose). The farm has main concrete paths that lead to each section of trees. Within each section, the grass is cut and it is easy to navigate from tree to tree. After you cut your tree, you can have them bring it back up front for you if you want (or you can haul it yourself). They are extremely helpful here and all you have to do is ask. All tre es were $50. Will definitely go back next year."
    Comments from a visitor on December 06, 2012: "This is a wonderful place to go. BEAUTIFUL trees. Price is $45 any tree. They are friendly and will help with whatever you need!"
