There’s just something about a REAL Christmas tree. Yes, yes…I know all about the needles and sap. BUT, the gorgeous pine aroma makes it all worth it! Make sure you’re getting the most jolly out of your Christmas tree memories by visiting a local Christmas tree farm to choose your own tree and cut it down! Parking lots stacked with trees cut states away just aren’t nearly as wonderfully classic as tromping through rows of pines and firs in the chilly air while you hunt down your perfect tree. Tall, short, skinny, fat, long-needled or not? A locally-sourced fresh Christmas tree brings the holiday spirit home!
Come with me for a short drive north of Iowa City as I take you to my favorite local Christmas tree farm, Handley’s Holiday Hillside, located in Solon, Iowa. I’ve created a short YouTube video about Handley’s Christmas Tree Farm here.
