Cutting your own Christmas Tree near Lincoln, NH

Over the next few weekends you will be able to come up and cut down your own Christmas Tree.
The most popular place to do that is the Rocks Estate in Bethlehem, NH. Here you can go 7 days a week and cut down a tree. They have several nature trails that you can hike or snowshoe on where you might see some winter wildlife. Some people would call the experience of going here a "Norman Rockwell Christmas". They have a variety of events occurring on a weekly basis.

My favorite place to go is Windy Ridge Orchard in North Haverhill, NH. We go here during the Fall on our Autumn Tour to Apple pick, but they also have cut your own Christmas Trees. You will enjoy a tractor ride down over the ridge and be able to select your own tree. I went with my family last year and my kids enjoyed riding the Toboggan in the snow and trying to find that perfect tree. The cost was around $30 per tree and was a great opportunity to create a Christmas memory with my family. After we harvested our tree the tractor brought us back up to the baler and then they helped tie the tree up to the roof rack. We went into the gift shop to look around and purchased some cider. We will be repeating the tradition this year.
