Farm News

Dear Friends and Family,

Can you believe that the Holiday Season is already upon us?  As beautiful as the various seasons are here in the mountains of WNC, it is refreshing to feel a nip in the air and we have actually already enjoyed our first snow!  How exciting that our favorite time of year is here again.  We are very pleased to let you know that one of our Fraser Fir Christmas trees is on the cover of this years Southern Living Christmas Edition!
David and the Southern Living Christmas Edition
We have been working hard and eagerly anticipate your visit to the Farm to select your perfect Fraser Fir Christmas tree. Opening Day is Friday, November 14th and we will be open daily from 9am-5pm through December 21st.  Our hospitality tent is heated and stocked with refreshments for your enjoyment.  Hot apple cider, hot chocolate, Boyd Mountain Blend roasted coffee, spring water and holiday cookies will be waiting for you.  There are gift items available in the tent including sweatshirts, t-shirts and ball caps for children and adults, toboggans, wreath hangers and our popular watering spouts that allow you to keep your tree fresh with ease and no mess. Our favorite stocking stuffers are the memorable Christmas tree ornaments, coffee mugs and embossed stainless steel water bottles.
New for 2014, we have hand painted ornaments made by a Waynesville artist and hand thrown pottery ornaments made by my cousin, Molly of Hemphill Pottery.
Dan, Bryce and David Boyd

In the News…

Boyd Mountain Log Cabins and Christmas Tree Farm was honored to be recognized in the  Southern Living Best Weekend Getaways magazine as one of North Carolina’s best farms stays and family vacation spots.  Information about our cabins can be found on our website and brochures and rate cards are available in the hospitality tent.

My parents, Dan and Betsy Boyd also had the opportunity to be interviewed in 2011 and appear on the late Dr. William Friday’s NC People, which aired on UNC-TV. Much of the interview was dedicated to growing Christmas trees and operating a Choose and Cut Farm.

Additionally, we have been featured in Smoky Mountain Living, Blue Ridge Country, Travel and Leisure, Our State and Southern Living. We are thankful for the opportunities we have had to share our Farm through these wonderful media outlets.

 

Fresh Wreaths

Fresh wreaths are being made daily at the Farm in a variety of sizes.  Special orders can be requested with a few day’s notice.  The wreaths are made by hand with fresh Fraser Fir branches on rings from 6 inches to 36 inches.  Also being created by employees of the Farm are mailbox wreaths, swags, centerpieces, roping and garland.  These items add wonderful charm and scent to any home during the Holidays and are also very thoughtful gift items that can be delivered early and don’t require wrapping!  That is a bonus in my book.  We will be making the wreaths throughout the season to provide you with the freshest product possible.  Shipping boxes are available specifically designed to mail a wreath to that special someone.  Also we will offer beautiful plaid bows in addition to the traditional, waterproof, red velvet. 

Fresh wreaths suit any style!

The Amazing Answer Stand
Many of our repeat customers use The Answer Stand tree stand and others come specifically to purchase one.  The Answer Stand is the easiest, safest and quickest way to put up your tree.  Our special tapered drilling equipment creates a hole in the base your tree that is compatible with the metal spike on the Answer Stand.  The tree can be placed on the stand in a minute by anyone and remains nice and straight throughout the Christmas season.  The bowl on the stand holds one gallon of water to help you keep your perfect tree fresh.  The Medium stand is recommended for 5′-7′ trees, Large for 7′-9′ trees and the Super stand can accommodate up to a 12′ tree.  All the stands feature removable rebar legs for simple storage.  Ask any Farm employee for a demonstration of this great stand and remember to be certain to have your tree drilled if you already use The Answer Stand.
