If you are looking for the experience of cutting your own Christmas tree, Bainbridge is a great place to come! Lucky guests have the potential for a snowy hunt for their tree, walking along a worn snow path through the tree lot on a feels-like-Christmas kind of day. Whatever the weather, the fresh air and fun of finding that perfect tree will delight any who visit – whether it’s cutting your own down or choosing from the pre-cut options. Tucked into the tree-covered landscape around Bainbridge are numerous Christmas tree farms that open their land to people who want the experience of hiking onto the tree lot, choosing the perfect tree for Christmas, and cutting it down themselves.
Sipple’s Tree Farm is closest to the Village of Bainbridge along the back side of the river, on a flat tree lot. Visitors can end the experience at the Christmas gift shop on the premises where a hot drink and a chance to wander through the holiday gifts and decorations awaits. Click here for map.
Tucked into the tree-covered hills near Oquaga Creek Park is Baxter’s Tree Farm, where visitors are welcome to experience hiking into the tree lot to cut down their tree or enjoy a free hayride into the acres of trees. Free hot chocolate and cider complete the experience, and the view is an added bonus! Open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. every day until Christmas Eve. Click here for map.
