Some farms offer Christmas-themed crafts and gifts, hot cocoa or cider, cookies, hayrides, farm animals to pet, antique machinery to admire, and spectacular views. High Country tree farmers will also to ship their perfectly proportioned trees all over the world - but the choose & cut tradition of old is still alive and well - and close to home in the Boone area.
