What are cut your own Christmas tree farms?
A visit to one of the many Cut your own Christmas Tree farms in the Hudson Valley is a unique way to begin the Holiday Season.
Although my mother extravagantly decorates her home for Christmas, she has always opted for an artificial tree. Even though it’s not a real tree, she has a premium, very full and elaboratley decorated Christmas tree.
My father-in-law, on the other hand, had a tradition of going to cut his own Christmas tree at one of the many cut your own Christmas Tree farms in the Hudson Valley.
