Make the Holidays Brighter With a Loudoun-Grown Tree

Nothing says “the holidays are finally here!” like the sharp, tangy scent of a fresh-cut fir, pine, spruce or cedar. Fill your home with that wonderful aroma by bringing home a tree from a Loudoun farm.

There are almost 20 farms featured in Loudoun Economic Development’s brochure Holidays in the Loudoun Valleys – 2017 Guide to Trees, Greens and Holiday Floral Products. This free guide is available at libraries, participating farms, and public buildings around the county, as well as online at LoudounFarms.org.

“The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as ‘Small Business Saturday,’ and buying a tree from a Loudoun farm is a great way to strengthen the county’s economy,” said Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer.

This year’s guide features:

  • Loudoun tree farms and other venues where you can buy your own tree or locally grown wreaths, poinsettias and other holiday decorations;
  • A detailed map showing farm locations;
  • A tree care guide;
  • Information about fun activities taking place in several Loudoun towns.

A number of the farms offer activities, complimentary hot drinks, or hot food for a fee. Some farms have pre-cut trees to choose from, while others allow families to cut their own trees.

“It’s a great family tradition to load up the car with kids, drive out to the Loudoun countryside on a beautiful fall day, and sip hot cider while strolling among rows of pines, firs, spruce and cedars. It makes memories that can last a lifetime,” said Agricultural Development Officer Kellie Hinkle.

Details and directions to each venue can be found on the Loudoun Farms app, available as a free download for iOS or Android devices.
