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 Greece'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! Help me keep this page complete and up to date, by
reporting any corrections needed or suggesting farms to add!

- If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website or Facebook page. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
- ALWAYS email or call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO
- many farms have closed in the past year, and of course, we won't know until the season starts and we find they aren't open! Call 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, email or find current information on their website or Facebook page!
- And please tell the farmer you visit in Greece 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!

bought. Choose & Cut farms, in the form of CHO.C.O. farms, operate
for the first time in Greece in 2015, after a project undertaken in
the Forest Research Institute of Thessaloniki, Greece. The idea
belongs to Dr. Konstantinos Papaspyropoulos, (Forest Economics PhD)
and the project is financed by Greek and EU funds. CHO.C.O. farms
(CHOose, Cut, Offset) are the business as usual Choose & Cut farms,
but additionally, the farms will have offset the emissions caused by
the car use of their customers driving to the farm. Thus, the farms
will be carbon neutral and they will display the certificate of
forest offsets' purchase to the customers.

Complete Water Bath Canner Kit
This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother
used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and
spaghetti sauce! This complete kit includes everything you need and
lasts for years:
the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs,
lid lifting wand, six pint jars with lids and rings, a plastic funnel,
labels, bubble freer, and the bible of canning, the Ball Blue Book. It's
much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll
never need anything else except more jars and lids!
