Cleave Douglas fir, blue spruce, and Canaan fir at the family-­owned field or pick up a pre-cut evergreen. For tree skirts and ornaments, stop by the Christmas store.

Sip complimentary hot chocolate while strolling this Yuletide plot near the Blue Ridge Mountains. Cut your own conifer or snag a Fraser fir, which can grow up to ten feet.
