Growing up, we always cut down our Christmas tree from my dad’s deer lease in the Hill Country, but my kids haven’t ever had that opportunity! It’s such a nostalgic activity that I couldn’t wait to take my kids out to 4D Farms in Weatherford to see their Christmas tree farm! In addition to picking out and cutting down your own tree, they have a cute shop, hayrides and more!
Know Before You Go
They accept cash and credit cards.
They provide everything for cutting down the tree.
Opens Thanksgiving weekend each year.
4D Farms, a family operation since the ’90s, offers 2 unique varieties of Christmas trees; Leyland Cypress and Blue Ice Arizona Cypress.
In a good season, the trees can grow up to 3′ a year!
The Leyland Cupress is a terrific choice for those with allergies, as it doesn’t have a strong scent.
The Blue Ice Arizona Cypress is actually a light blue is color, and has a fragrant scent.
The Country Store has complementary hot chocolate and homemade cookies while you browse their cute, Christmas themed items for sale.
We purchased the yummy, homemade wild grape jelly they can in early fall.
4D Farms also sells potted trees.
My son just loved the little train that ran under the tree!
