The Best Christmas Tree Farm in Brantford & Area

Looking for that perfect Christmas tree? We’ve made it easy and put together a list of our favourite Christmas tree farms in the area. We can’t believe that we’re writing this as it is 16 degrees outside in the middle of November. Christmas is just around the corner and if you’ve been out in most stores you’ve probably noticed that Christmas is already in full swing. Between the decorations, the sales and the black-Friday presales already. There’s something about the tradition of going and cutting down your own tree. As much as we love a faux tree for the easiness of it all, a real Christmas tree is about more than just the tree. The experience of going and getting it is so much fun!

So here’s our list of the best Christmas tree farms in the Brantford & surrounding area!

>h3>1. Merry Farms

If you’re looking for a classic Christmas tree farm experience, Merry Farms does just that! I mean how perfect is the name? Even better is that it is the owner’s last name. Merry Farms is situated on 176 acres and offers both “cut your own” or “pre-cut” Christmas trees. They have a variety of different trees including Balsam Fir and Fraser Fir. Trees are tagged with colour ribbon to help you identify the pricing. For example, a blue tag Balsam Fir up to 8’ is $105.00 HST included.

On weekends, they also have food available at the “Sweet Shack” where you can grab some delicious peameal on a bun, cider donuts and more! They also typically have a large fire going as well that offers a great place to hang out. On your way out, make sure to stop by their Christmas Store for some more décor! If you are planning on visiting, make sure to make a reservation as they are required Friday – Sunday. P.S. Dogs are welcome! Just make sure they are on a leash.
