Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm

Thanks to a blog-reader tip, when the weather turned a balmy 45-degrees, I took C out to the very enjoyable Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm. Even though we already have our Christmas tree, we needed to get out of the house and I felt like exploring.

Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm was a great little stop for us! If we didn't have our tree, we would have had the option to walk through the acres of trees and pick our own fresh one growing right out of the ground (you tag it, someone else comes and cuts it) or to pick up and take home immediately one of the pre-cut ones at the stand.

There were so many cute Christmas ornaments and decorations for sale in the barn and two girls sold hot chocolate (for $1). We ended up bringing home a gorgeous, fresh wreath for our front door.

For kids especially, out near the acres of trees, there was a very nice wooden playset, a moonbounce that is inflated on the weekends only, and an old tractor to climb on. And the owners here are pretty thoughtful in that there is a major road behind those trees near the playset, so they put a caution barrier up.

Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm is a labor of love of a local professor so opens the day after Thanksgiving and closes up Dec 19th (that's your last day to buy stuff).

Honestly, I am a horrible judge on prices of trees and Christmas paraphernalia. I feel like I am always shocked at how much trees cost, but I didn't feel like Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm was more expensive than other stands out there. But boy do I love the idea of heading out to a field to pick it out. We also had a very lovely drive around Jordan Lake to get there, and enjoyed stopping to take in the scenery and the birds. This is a great little adventure for the family and I look forward to visiting again next year.
