For some, the days following Thanksgiving are to be spent at the mall. For others, it’s time to head to the farm.
Starting Friday, thousands of families will head to Loudoun’s Christmas tree farms in search of the perfect tree. Last year, 5,000 trees were cut and sold at the county’s farms.
The county Department of Economic Development’s annual Guide to Christmas in the Loudoun Valley details the offerings of 11 cut-your-own farms and others selling pre-cut trees and holiday greenery. To get the guide, go to loudounfarms.org/christmastrees.
