Christmas at the Farm: What to Expect
This year we have a great selection of hand-sheared White Pines and Norway Spruces up to 8′ tall priced at $60 for any tree. You may walk the fields to choose a tree and cut it yourself (we provide the saws) or select from fresh, pre-cut, Norway Spruces priced at $70. We do not have Frasier Fir or Douglas Fir trees. Once you have selected a tree, our attendants will be available to bundle it and secure it to your vehicle for easy transport home. Or they will provide you with twine so that you can tie your own tree. In our farm shop you will find a variety of hand-crafted gifts and farm products for sale (you may pre-order these through our online store for grab-and-go service) Be sure to visit the bonfire outside and enjoy the view. Bundle up, bring your family, and come out to see us sometime this holiday season.
Items we will have for sale at the farm include:
- White Pine and Norway Spruce Christmas Trees
- Wreaths and red-berry holly bouquets
- Homemade jams, honey and beeswax candles
- One of a kind hooked rugs, weavings and wood crafts
- Gift baskets featuring our farm products
- Fresh garden produce
- Hand-crafted gift items

Tree Care Tips: When you get your tree home be sure to place it immediately into a bucket of water and keep it supplied with water. Your tree will take up lots of water the first few days. If you are storing your tree outside before you put it up in your house, be sure to keep it in a cool, sheltered place, out of the sun and wind. Inside – set up your tree away from heating vents, and far from woodstoves and fireplaces. Add water daily.
We are once again offering tree marking/reservation on tree fields adjacent to Oak Shade Farm. The trees available for marking are all short-needle varieties, mainly spruces.
Here’s how it works if you want to visit the marking fields at the Day farm:
-Visit us any day, 9-5, starting Nov. 7th at 7006 Waterford Road, Rixeyville, VA
-Mark the tree you like and pay for it – the price is $70 for any tree.
-Tell us which day you would like to pick it up (or take it home the same day.)
-Call or email us if you have questions about the Day farm: 540-937-7505 firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s how it works if you want to visit the marking fields at Waterford Run Farm:
-Visit the farm at 14477 Waterford Run Lane by appointment starting Nov. 7th
-Mark the tree you like and pay for it – the price is $70 for any tree
-Tell us which day you would like to pick it up
-Contact email@example.com to schedule a time or call Caroline Mello 540-272-9712
We will cut your tree, bundle it and deliver it to Oak Shade Farm, 14455 Waterford Run Lane, for pick-up on any date during our regular Christmas season, from November 27th to December 24th. Of course, you may take your tree the same day you select it.
Remember – the later you cut your tree the better it will look at Christmas. Needle drop is a problem in spruce trees cut more than 3 weeks ahead.
