Cut-Your-Own Christmas Tree, North of Boston

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 2:58 pm

They say you should eat local and buy local.  How about chop local?

Looking for a u-cut Christmas tree place?  We think the best one is Ingraham Tree Farm in Georgetown, MA.  We got our tree here a few years ago and little did we know we’d live down the street from them one day.

There are LOTS of trees and they can get pretty big.  Dogs are welcome (on- or off-leash) and you can ride the orange Allis Chalmers tractor around the farm.  Cut it yourself (saws provided) or let the kids who work there cut it down load it on the tractor if you want.  They’ll tie them to your car roof, too.  We tried to bribe them to come to our house to set it up, but they finally said no.

Which one will be ours? The many trees to choose from at Ingraham Tree Farm.

They don’t have a web site, so here’s the scoop (call to make sure they are open if you’re going on a weekday):
Ingraham Tree Farm – 167R Nelson St, Georgetown, MA 01833. Phone: 978-352-6668. Open: Weekends, 8am – 3pm (last entrance at 3pm)  , Weekdays W,TH, F 2-4pm.  Payment: Cash, Check.

Directions — five minutes from Rte 95 — take exit 53B Georgetown/Rt. 97.  Go north on Rt. 97 for four minutes.  (Do not follow the first Christmas tree sign to Herricks.  Pass that sign and pass Nunan’s Nursery.)  Take a left on Nelson St.  It’s on Nelson St. , on your right.  Park on the street (you’ll drive your car up later and they’ll put the tree on top).

Here are some photos from our day —
