And Thanksgiving Day
MAKING UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES IS WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT!!
Dear Friends and Family,
Can you believe that the Holiday Season is already upon us? As beautiful as the various seasons are here in the mountains of WNC, it is refreshing to feel a nip in the air. How exciting that our favorite time of year is here again.
David and the Southern Living Christmas Edition
We have been working hard and eagerly anticipate your visit to the Farm to select your perfect Fraser Fir Christmas tree. Opening Day is Friday, November 11th and we will be open weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 9am-5pm through December 11th.
Our retail lot, located four miles from the Farm at 1368 Dellwood Road, Waynesville, NC (Grass Root Gardens) will be open DAILY from November 20th-December 20th from 9am-6pm. This location will be stocked with fresh cut trees from the Farm as well as live (dug) Fraser Firs, wreaths, roping, tree stands and watering spouts
New this year for your ease and convenience, we have added a tent stocked with fresh cut trees (in water to ensure freshness) from another one of our growing locations. This will be a help to those that wish to experience a Christmas Tree Farm without the hike up the hill.
On Thanksgiving weekend, to expedite pickup of your tree, we will have a truck loading area as well as the car tie-on line. Our goal is for this to be the best experience we can provide.
As always, our hospitality tent is heated and stocked with refreshments for your enjoyment. Hot apple cider, hot chocolate, Boyd Mountain Blend roasted coffee, spring water and holiday cookies will be waiting for you. There are gift items available in the tent including sweatshirts, t-shirts and ball caps for children and adults, toboggans, wreath hangers and our popular watering spouts that allow you to keep your tree fresh with ease and no mess. Our favorite stocking stuffers are the memorable hand painted Christmas tree ornaments, hand thrown pottery mugs and embossed stainless steel water bottles.
Boyd Mountain Log Cabins and Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree Farm were honored to be featured in two magazines in October 2015.
Country Living Magazine October featured 15 Great Vacation Spots where you can bunk up and get down with nature. Boyd Mountain Log Cabins is one of the Log Cabin Getaways from Coast to Coast.
Southbound Magazine, published by Atlanta magazine, showcases the top travel destinations in the Southeast. The story, "Oh Christmas Tree... It's Time to Visit the South's Most Fetching Tree Farm", featured Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree Farm as one of four farms!
Additionally, we have been featured in Smoky Mountain Living, Blue Ridge Country, Travel and Leisure, Our State and Southern Living. We are thankful for the opportunities we have had to share our Farm through these wonderful media outlets.
Fresh wreaths are being made daily at the Farm in a variety of sizes. Special orders can be requested with a few day's notice. The wreaths are made by hand with fresh Fraser Fir branches on rings from 6 inches to 36 inches. Also being created by employees of the Farm are mailbox wreaths, swags, centerpieces, roping and garland. These items add wonderful charm and scent to any home during the Holidays and are also very thoughtful gift items that can be delivered early and don't require wrapping! That is a bonus in my book. We will be making the wreaths throughout the season to provide you with the freshest product possible. Shipping boxes are available specifically designed to mail a wreath to that special someone. Also we will offer beautiful plaid bows in addition to the traditional, waterproof, red velvet.
The Amazing Answer Stand
Many of our repeat customers use The Answer Stand tree stand and others come specifically to purchase one. The Answer Stand is the easiest, safest and quickest way to put up your tree. Our special tapered drilling equipment creates a hole in the base your tree that is compatible with the metal spike on the Answer Stand. The tree can be placed on the stand in a minute by anyone and remains nice and straight throughout the Christmas season. The bowl on the stand holds one gallon of water to help you keep your perfect tree fresh. The Medium stand is recommended for 5'-7' trees, Large for 7'-9' trees and the Super stand can accommodate up to a 12' tree. All the stands feature removable rebar legs for simple storage. Ask any Farm employee for a demonstration of this great stand and remember to be certain to have your tree drilled if you already use The Answer Stand.
SANTA VISITS THE FARM
Once again, we're expecting a very special guest at Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree Farm. Santa Claus will be joining us from the North Pole so all you children and children at heart can share your wishes with him and let him know how good you've been this year. This will be a fabulous photo opportunity so don't forget to bring your camera!
Santa will be at the Farm Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 25th through November 27th and Saturday and Sunday, December 3rd and 4th. Hours will be 10am-5pm. So, remember to plan some additional time to visit with Santa when you come to choose your perfect Christmas tree.
