Nothing Like a Fresh Cut Christmas Tree – Let this Asheville Inn be your Guide

November 18th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

Let this Asheville Inn be your guide to the best fresh cut Christmas trees in WNC! We are so fortunate to live in western North Carolina, the number two state in the country for growing Christmas Trees! There are 3 farms within 30 minutes of Asheville and many more as you drive toward Boone.  One of our family favorites is Sandy Hollar Farm located in the beautiful Sandy Mush area about 30 minutes north/west of Asheville.  Every year we head out to Sandy Mush, which  also happens to where our good friends and well known organic farmers, Vanessa and Alex Brown call home.  Our kids always enjoy the hayride up to the meadow passing llamas and goats,  where we pick  and cut down two Frasier Firs — one for our Asheville Bed and Breakfast and one for our private home.  Each of the farms listed below offer hay rides and other holiday festivities. Rounding out the family outing, Santa often shows up so the kids can sit on his lap and tell them what they would like for Christmas.
