Create Holiday Memories with a Locally Grown Tree
It’s time to select that tree, so why not make it a family event that will become a happy memory?
Arkansas boasts plenty of beautiful tree farms that make choosing the tree a highlight of the season. We’ve highlighted a few to help you make plans to visit one soon.
At this happiest time of the year, we encourage you to enjoy this family fun that will not only get you in the Christmas spirit, but will mean the tree that ends up in your living room will be fresher and last longer.
Due to COVID-19, some activities may be subject to change as new information and directives become available. Call the farm before your visit.
Motley’s Tree Farm
Take a wagon ride out to the Christmas tree field and spend an afternoon or the whole day choosing your very own tree! Whether you want to cut it yourself or have a staff member do the honors, they will load it on the wagon and help you tie it to your vehicle. Motley’s offers Carolina Sapphires (live or cut); Leyland Cypresses (live or cut), and Fraser Firs (cut).
While there, visit the gift shop (with thousands of ornaments to choose from!), toys, and other goodies. Don’t forget the Fudge Kitchen, offering more than 20 flavors, including Candy Cane, Maple Nut, Cranberry Nut, Amaretto Chocolate, and more! It’s made fresh with real cream and butter every day. And you can’t leave without catching the pig races and zoo farm!
Papa Santa’s Christmas Tree Farm
Customers may come by during their appointment to choose a tree, tag it, and make arrangements to take it home then or pick it up later. Due to COVID-19, an elf employee will meet you near the parking lot as you’re arriving, and will direct you to the fields.
You may cut your own tree if you wish (a saw will be provided), or Papa Santa’s staff will cut it for you.
Customers may also look forward to:
- Scavenger hunt for children ages 12 and under
- Complimentary cocoa, cider, and candy canes
- Santa will be on hand to visit in a socially distanced area
- Photo sittings can be scheduled via Facebook
