Christmas Tree Farms Where You can Pick the Best Holiday Tree
feature image is Horrocks
My husband and I both grew up having real Christmas trees in our house.
One of his family’s ultimate Christmas activities would be to go out to the U Cut Christmas tree farm and cut down a tree.
My family would just wander into the backyard (okay, it was 12 acres of woods) and find the perfect spruce!
Now that we have our own children, the Christmas tree farm family tradition continues.
These days West Michigan Christmas tree farms have so many activities and hot cocoa, it makes braving the cold an enjoyable experience for all.
Sometimes we even bring our dog along for the fun.
