This weekend we enjoyed a brisk (to put it mildly) trip up north to Feezers organic Christmas tree farm in Mariottsville, Maryland.
It was just a little further than the farm we went to last year, and we actually paid a little less for a lovely blue spruce. One caveat, there weren’t a whole lot of taller trees to be found as most topped out around 5-6 feet. They do supplement their offerings with (non-organic) Fraser firs from Pennsylvania. And the complementary hot chocolate and candy canes are just the thing to warm up little hands after the hard work of hauling ones tree back up the hill is complete!
Last week I noted the Green Promise organic tree directory; if you don’t have an organic farm nearby and still need to find a tree, consult the National Christmas Tree Association’s search feature. Even if they’re not organic, a locally-grown tree helps support green spaces and fresh air near your hometown!
