Outside, the air grows ever colder and frost covers the ground each morning. Inside homes and community spaces, festive decorations are going up to brighten our nights as the days grow shorter.
The holidays are upon us!
Holiday decorating is a fun and festive tradition that you would have to be a literal Scrooge to not enjoy; get yourself in the holiday spirit by heading out and looking for a Christmas tree from one of the best Christmas tree farms in Massachusetts!
If you’re looking for an idyllic, storybook setting to search for your perfect Christmas tree in, Sleighbell Farm in Sutton, MA is the perfect tree farm for you! Sleighbell Farm is a 10+ acre farm that grows 7 different varieties of Christmas trees for you to choose from; you can cut your own or select a pre-cut option.
Sleighbell Farm goes above and beyond to provide a merry and bright holiday experience, with hot cocoa, a fire pit, hay wagon rides, and a “Santa Express” train running for the kiddos.

Chestnut Mountain Christmas Tree Farm
Located in Hatfield, MA, Chestnut Mountain Christmas Tree Farm is a 130-acre farm that prioritizes sustainability in their farming and forestry production practices, planting 3,000 new trees every single year to offset the hundreds of trees that are cut down and sold. You can cut your own if you’d like or choose from one of their pre-cut trees, but be sure to check out their handmade wreaths and other goodies available in the “workshop.”
Yummy and warm complimentary cider and cookies are available while you wait for your tree to be properly baled for you, and you can even go on a lovely horse-drawn hayride if you end up doing your tree-hunting on the weekend!
