It’s that time of year again! And although this year might look a little different, it doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy some of those traditions we love around the holidays or even create some new ones. If you’re wondering where to pick up a Christmas tree in Ottawa this year, here are some fun and festive spots where you can pick out your own with the family.
Thomas Tree Farm
Located in North Gower, Thomas Tree Farm has 50 acres where you can browse their tree selection as you ride along on their horse-drawn sleigh. It’s always a hit with kids. They also offer complimentary cookies and hot chocolate that you can enjoy while warming up around the fire.
Ian’s Christmas Adventure Park and Tree Farm
This is one of the most popular tree farms around Ottawa. It’s only about a 30-minute drive from the city and has plenty of trees for you and the family to choose from. Whether you prefer a pre-cut tree or wish to cut down your own, you’ll find the perfect tree to take home. Ian’s Christmas Park also offers other fun activities such as a petting farm, hayrides, bonfires, hot chocolate, and socially-distanced visits with Santa.
Fallowfield Tree Farm
If you prefer something a little closer to home, this tree farm is about 15 minutes from the city. There’s also a wagon ride here to hop on, bonfires and even marshmallows for you and the kids to roast.
McGowan’s Christmas Tree Farm
Beyond their selection of trees, bonfires and wagon rides, McGowan’s also has other items for sale, including unique ornaments and cute handmade wreaths. Perfect for the parents to browse and pick up something special for your home.
Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm
Located 30 minutes from Kanata, Cedar Hill is known for their organized and well-oiled operation. Like the other farms, there’s hot chocolate, a bonfire and a wagon ride that can take out to pick your tree. But they also have a sledding hill, a little shop on-site and even a country-style kitchen where you can enjoy some tasty treats.
