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

Christmas 2018

 

Update 8 (9 Dec) We've closed for the Season.  if your looking for a tree please visit VCTGA website for farms and availability.  Also some of the tree vendors in town may have some nice trees.  Good Luck and Have a Merry Christmas!!!  

Update 7 (9 Dec) Busy day yesterday.  We have a handful of pre-cut trees remaining and a number of wreaths and pine roping.  The fields have been picked over pretty good.  Based on this, today unfortunately will be the last day we'll be open this year. 

Update 6 (7 Dec) This will likely be our last weekend for the year.  On Saturday the Scouts will have a fund raiser that includes a Bake Sale, Hot Dogs, Pit Beef, etc.. If your coming out plan to have lunch out here and support the Scouts.  The weather for Sunday may be interesting.    

Update 5 (1 Dec) Rain is expected today and into tomorrow morning; expect it to be muddy and wet.  

 Update 4 (25 Nov) Good News!!!!  Phone service is restored and we are able to process credit card transactions.   

Update 3 (25 Nov) 3 brave families came out yesterday in the rain.  Today looks like a great day however I suggest wearing boots or old shoes as it is a bit sloppy.  As of 8:00 our phone lines are down which means we can't process credit card transactions.  We suggest planning to pay with either cash or check.  We hope service will be returned quickly but the phone company can't make any promises.   

Update 2 (20 Nov) 85% of the pre-cut trees are at the Farm with the remainder due in tomorrow.  It looks like we have some really nice trees for this year to include 12 ft plus Fraser Firs and 10 ft Concolors. Weather looks great for Friday with some showers for Saturday and Sunday, not to worry we'll be ready rain or shine.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!! 

Update 1 (13 Nov)  Busy getting things set up for opening day on 23 Nov; Pre-cut Concolors, Fraser Firs and Canaan Firs to be picked up early next week; I've ordered 125 more trees than last year so we should have enough for our regular and new customers 

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.  Our regular customers will notice some changes this year.  The Nor-easter we had back in March hit us pretty hard.  14 large trees were blown down too include the "Port a Pot Tree".  We also lost a number of Christmas trees that were blown sideways.  The Red shed was rolled twice and has now been moved to the location where the "Port a Pot  Tree" was.  Over half the shingles on the Sales Shed were blown off and we've replaced them with a metal roof.  A number of the Scotch Pines were impacted by the wind and a fungus caused by the wet summer and had to be cut out.  This presented an opportunity to move our precut trees off the driveway; they are now located where the Red shed used to be.  So don't worry when you come out and don't see the precuts on the side of the driveway, we still have them. 

As I mentioned in the update I will pick up the Pre-cut trees early next week.  I have ordered a 125 additional tress this year that include Concolor, Fraser Firs of a variety of heights to include 12 foot Fraser Firs, and a selection of Canaan Firs which were very popular last year.  These additional trees should ensure a sufficient inventory for this year.  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, Scotch Pines and White Spruce.   

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 providing hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas and bake goods on most  Saturdays; I'll post these in weekly updates.  Plan to come out and have lunch on the farm while supporting these great organizations.  

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 last year and he agreed to give us a special mail box for direct mailing to the North Pole.  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.  See Picture Tab   

A Ho Ho Hogan and Big Bo Update....Both are settling down some, however they still believe their puppies.  Hogans around 80 lbs and Bo is a 100 lbs or more; acting like puppies at that weight  can and does lead to trouble.  So both are not quite ready for prime time yet,.  I'm sure Garrett will bring him down on a leash or you can see him in the back yard.  

Many of you may remember Raven the black cat who used to follow everyone around, unfortunately she died of old age; I believe everyone will miss seeing her.    

Anne's shop will be open with tree care supplies, wreaths, and unique items to include ornaments, and decorations.  The shop is always warm and you can find a 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!
