Butler’s Orchard: For All Your Holiday Needs

This past weekend we went to Butler’s Orchard up in Germantown to get our Christmas Tree. We have a tradition of making the trek up there to pick out and cut down our own tree. Their land is beautiful and they have a variety of pick your own crops throughout the year – they are my favorite place for picking blueberries during the summer months.

For Christmas trees, you drive out to the field and they give you a saw to pick out and cut down your perfect tree…

This past weekend, they had Newfoundland dogs on site to help pull your tree from the field to your car…

Once we had found the perfect tree, which was no easy task as I wanted a ten foot tall tree, we snapped a quick picture before cutting it down.

Then after loosely putting it on the top of our car, we drove back up to the market building to have them bale it up for the trek back to DC.

While we were having the tree strapped on top of the car, I was inside doing a little shopping for my wreath making projects (stay tuned later this week for a How To on wreaths). You can either buy the pre-made plain wreaths or pick out embellishments and they will put together a wreath just for you while you wait.

Butler’s also has a variety of holiday ornaments and food products as well. I was sure to pick up some pumpkin seeds and hot cider for the ride home.

Cut your own Christmas Trees are $45 and $50 (depending on the variety of tree) and are available from now until December 24. For hours and more information, check out their website here.
