Welcome to a festive journey through Vermont’s enchanting Christmas tree farms! As the holiday season twinkles to life, what could be better than selecting the perfect tree from the very land where it grew?
In this post, I’m going to share with you the best Christmas tree farms in Vermont, where the scent of fresh pine and the thrill of finding your ideal tree create unforgettable holiday memories.
Best Christmas Tree Farms in Vermont
What I love about Vermont (among many things) is it’s strong sense of tradition and the great stewardship of its people. Vermonters have a tremendous commitment to the environment and to a culture that supports agriculture. It will come as no surprise that all of the Christmas tree farms on this list are family-owned Vermont businesses. If you love to support and shop local, choosing your own holiday tree from one of these locations is an excellent choice this festive season.
All of these tree farmers are known for their beautiful crop (with its heavenly scent) but they also have raving reviews from customers who love their prices, gorgeous locations, kind people, and festive atmospheres. Let’s find you your tree!
Werner Tree Farm, Middlebury VT
Family-run Werner Tree Farm in Middlebury, VT is a prime example of quaint Vermont Christmas charm. Whether you cut your own tree or choose from their pre-cut stock, the Werner family provides all that you need to have a fun, festive experience while picking out the perfect Christmas tree!
Spruce, fir, pine? They’ve got all varieties of evergreen at this farm, so you can take your pick.
Complimentary hot chocolate and cookies will keep your energy up as you hunt for your tree, and when you return, you can head in to check out the farm shop! You’ll find a wide selection of handcrafted garlands, wreaths, kissing balls, and other Werner Farm staples, like their maple syrup and raw honey products.
Oh, and a special note for families with kids: don’t leave this VT Christmas tree farm without meeting Twister, the Christmas pony!

If that doesn’t rev up your Christmas spirit-ometer, rumor has it that if you stop by the Christmas Cottage on the weekends, you might just run in to Santa himself!

With an Elysian Hills tree, you’ll not only get to enjoy the beauty and freshness of a real Vermont tree, you will be doing something good for the environment and supporting Vermont agriculture.”
