Christmas Time is Here!

Only 25 days until Christmas! We are busy with the season here at the farm, selling trees, wreaths, garlands, and don’t forget the “famous” Jones Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies! My weeks these past few weeks have been filled with making cookies for the Christmas season. Last weekend was our first weekend opening the “Canteen”, where we sell the cookies and coffee and hot cider from the Harvest Kitchen window.

The barnyard is filled with pre-cut trees, but by far the most choices for a tree are found in the 200 acres of Christmas trees here at the farm. Coming to Jones FamilyFarms during the Christmas season means more than just coming for a tree. There is so much to do. Visit the farm gift shop in the winery tasting room for great holiday gifts, get some cookies and cider to enjoy around the bonfire, and even write a letter to Santa!

It is great to see the happy families coming to get their trees. People can bring their dogs during the Christmas season as well, which many people do. I am enjoying seeing the variety of canines that are brought to the farm, from huge Swiss Mountain Dogs to tiny terriors. The Christmas season is a great, happy time. I can’t wait to see the first snow on the ground!
