Go out to Holden Farm this December to pick a living Christmas tree. The smell of a real tree immediately says “Christmas,” and Holden Farm has a wide variety to choose from. Nothing says it’s the holiday season quite like picking out a Christmas tree. This activity is sure to get you into the spirit of the season.
Holden Farm, on Floyds Fork, is one of the hidden gems of Middletown. This East End community is well-known for ritzy homes, great shopping and a wide restaurant selection. But it’s also home to Holden Farm, a charming place that’s somewhat off the beaten track – but not too far.
You’ll find it on Apple Hill Road, just past Anchorage in Middletown. Visit on December 12 until 3 pm to pick out your perfect tree. Choose the right tree from among Norway spruce and Scotch pine, two of the prettiest evergreen species. There are trees in all sizes here, so you can find one that will fit your home just right. Trees start at $15, and you can cut your own if you like. The farm will provide saws. Or, the farm will provide the labor and cut the tree for you.
