Christmas Tree Farms in Fairfield County

Pick Your Own Christmas Trees in CT

As a child, I went every year with my family to a local Christmas tree farm to cut down our tree.  It was inevitably freezing cold, someone (usually me) desperately had to go to the bathroom, someone (ok, me too…) had forgotten their mittens, epic arguments over the size and shape would ensue…in short, it was magical!  It’s time to introduce my own kids to that wonderful holiday tradition, and there are plenty of places in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties where you can cut your own tree.

Warrups Farm, Redding
If you’re looking for picturesque, head to one of our favorite CT farms; Warrup’s Farm in Redding.  This organic farm boasts a beautiful old farmhouse – stunning all year, but especially so at holiday time - as well as a barnyard where you can visit with the farm animals.  Come pick a white or blue spruce tree – cut your own or have them cut it for you – and pick up some of the farm’s own maple syrup or maple sugar candy – a tasty Christmas present for someone on your list!
