Welcome to Greene Meadows Farm!
One of the last choose and cut Christmas Tree Farms in Central Virginia!

 


Christmas 2020

Update 2 (24 Nov)  I've picked up the pre-cut trees and we are finalizing preparations for our opening on the 27th.  The weather forecast looks very good and we've received lots of inquiries this year so we're expecting a busy opening weekend.  We'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and look forward to seeing you on the Farm.   

Update 1 (12 Nov)  Christmas 2020 is nearing and I hope it finds all healthy and well.  We're busy getting things set up for opening day on Friday 27 Nov; Pre-cut Concolors, Fraser Firs and Canaan Firs to be picked up the week of Thanksgiving.  Fortunately I was able to get the same number of trees that I got last year from the my supplier.  We have made some changes to our operation to ensure the safety of our customers and staff.  We have constructed a porch across the front of the green sales shed so customers can take cover during inclement weather while not being enclosed. Given the small size of the sale shed and the resulting inability to distance, we have reluctantly elected not to have customers enter this year. Anne will set up her cash register on a table in front of the doors and has come up with a way to display the products in the sales shed like jellys and jams, tree stands, ornaments, mugs, etc. so that you can still purchase them.  Hot Chocolate and Cider will be served under the porch through the window to the left of the doors.  We have established 5 hand sanitizing stations at strategic places on the farm.  Our staff will be screened each day and will be wearing masks when they can't distance; we encourage all customers to do the same when they can't distance from persons other than family members. While these actions are in keeping with current COVID mitigation practices, we hope they aren't to intrusive to your visit.  I will post the next update during the week of Thanksgiving.   

Welcome to Greene Meadows Farm
 

It is our objective to provide a traditional Christmas experience to our friends, neighbors, and customers.

We invite you to come out to the farm and search through over 7 acres of trees or choose from our selection of fresh pre-cut trees featuring the Concolor Fir.

After you've either cut a tree from the fields or selected a pre-cut tree, visit our new Christmas Shop, enjoy a cup of complimentary Hot Chocolate or Cider and a Candy Cane, and browse our selection of ornaments and other decorations and gift items.

Augment your traditional family decorations by choosing a freshly made wreath, table center piece, swag, or garland.

Visit the lambs and don't forget your camera...you'll want to capture the moment or take a picture of the beautiful mountains and scenery.

 

A Note to Our Friends, Neighbors, Loyal, and New Customers...

It's hard to believe but Christmas is almost here.  We've been busy preparing for your visit sprucing up the farm. 

As I mentioned in the update I will pick up the Pre-cut trees the week of Thanksgiving.  I was fortunate to get the same number of trees that I got last year.  We will have Concolor, Fraser Firs of a variety of heights to include 12 foot Fraser Firs, and a selection of Canaan and Douglas Firs.      

For our Concolor Fir customers, we will continue to have a nice selection pre-cut trees from our supplier in Pennsyvannia.  Remember all of our pre-cut trees are cut the week of Thanksgiving and are stored out of the wind and sun to preserve freshness.  We continue to have a nice selection of taller trees, 8-9 feet and for those looking the "Griswold" tree, I have a number of trees that are 12 feet and over. 

For choose and cut we have a nice selection of White Pines and a reduced selection of Canaan Firs, and very limited supply of Scotch Pines and White Spruce.   Sadly the 36 days straight of 90 plus degree temperatures in June and July killed a number of our newly planted seedlings.  We have a number of seedlings on order for the Spring planting.   

By popular demand, we continue to offer our Greene Meadows Farm private label preserves, jelly's, and relishes that include Apple Butter, Black Berry Preserves, Pumpkin Butter, Horseradish Mustard and Hot Pepper Jelly. Our new selection this year is Strawberry Cranberry Preserves.  These items make great stocking "stuffers" and great gifts for friends and family.  Remember to reserve a jar or two for your own enjoyment. 

Based on demand, we will also continue to offer the Krinner Tree Stand; you may recall Anne refers to it as the "marriage saver" stand.  Once you see the demonstration you'll want one. 

We will continue to have youth sports clubs and the Boy Scouts conducting fundraisers during the season.  We are working to get Boy Scout Troop 174 to sell hot dogs, hamburgers and pit beef sandwiches on 5 Dec.  Plan to come out and have lunch on the farm while supporting the Scouts.   

Santa was so impressed with the letters he received last year that he's agreed to provide the "Special Mail Box" again this year.  As you may remember John had a long talk with Santa three years ago and he agreed to give us a special mail box for direct mailing to the North Pole.  It has been so successful that Santa has agreed to let us use it another year.  So if your interested in sending Santa a letter, you can bring it with you to the Farm or we will have paper and pencils so you can write one during your visit.  An Elf from the North Pole Post Office comes down after each weekend and picks up the letters so you can be sure Santa is going to see them.  Santa let John conyinue to borrow one of Santas old sleds for the Farm for pictures. 

A Ho Ho Hogan and Big Bo Update....Both are doing well and settling down some, however they're not quite ready yet to venture down freely to the selling area.  I know I said this last year.  Hogans around 90 lbs and too smart for his own good and Bo is a 130 lbs or more and believes he's a lap dog.  So both are not quite ready for prime time yet.  I'm sure Garrett will bring them down on a leash or you can see them dog wrestling in the back yard.  We hope they'll be ready some year soon. 

Anne's shop will be open with tree care supplies, wreaths, and unique items to include ornaments, and decorations.  As mentioned in the update we sadly aren't going to allow customers into the shop this year as it is nearly impossible to distance.  Anne will display the items for sale and will set up the cash register on a table infront of the doors under the new porch.  We will continue our tradition of offering complimentry hot cup of cider or hot chocolate to keep you happy. 

We say this every year and it is true...The most enjoyable part of the farm is visiting with our friends and neighbors who return each year to  make us a part of their Christmas and meeting the new folks who venture out to Greene Meadows in search of that traditional Christmas experience.

For your convenience we accept checks and credit cards.

We look forward to seeing you again this year!
