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!

Christmas Season  2019

We will be open November 21st through the 24th. Santa will be here the 23rd and 24th.

We will be open the 28th (Thanksgiving day) through December 1st. Santa will be here the 29th, 30th and December 1st. 

We are also going to be open a third weekend, December 5-8.

We have been planting more trees each year because of the tree shortage and we’re trying to look down the road to take the best care of our customers. We will be very limited on our 10 to 11 foot trees this year but within the next year or so we should be good. We look forward to having you at the farm for the best Christmas tree experience.

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.

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 15th and we will be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5pm through December 2nd. When using Google Maps or GPS to navigate to the Farm, please enter 445 Boyd Farm Road, Waynesville, NC 28785, NOT Boyd Mountain Road which will take you towards the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

For your ease and convenience, we have added a tent stocked with fresh cut trees  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.

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 thrown pottery mugs and ornaments and embossed stainless steel water bottles.

Fresh Wreaths

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.
