It’s almost time to plan the annual trek to procure one of the emblems of the holiday season—the Christmas tree! Most Christmas tree farms are in full swing by the weekend of November 28 so use our guide to find locations right in the city or slightly farther afield and plan the experience that works best for your crew. With cider, hot chocolate, decorations galore and a million photo ops, this is a much-loved family tradition. Tis the season to be jolly, after all…
Taylor Tree Farm: Stouffville
Tractor rides to the fields, bonfires and refreshment stands make the experience of picking our own tree that much more awesome. Drilling, shaking and baling are also included. Deck the halls!
Elliott Tree Farm: Hillsburgh
If you’re looking for something with less pomp and circumstance and more nature, check out Elliott Tree Farm near Orangeville. The nature trails offer a great way to get active with the whole family and the Settler’s Cabin and Barn are neat to see. Don’t forget to warm up with cider.
We’ve got 10 more places with beautiful trees. See them all in our guide: Where to Get the Perfect Tree in Toronto.
