We love the Pines Farm. We have been going every year for the last 8 years. We have pictures of our children in the little "Santa Sleigh" from every year. We also get some great shots by the little lake that's in the middle. The folks there are so sweet. It feels just like going to visit family. They have little coloring books for the kids, cookies, cocoa, cider, lollipops. Although at first I wasn't crazy about the long-needle pines (and they now have some other shorter needle varieties, but those are more expensive than the long-needle ones), we have been able to get a super-beautiful fresh tree every year that lasts all season and for CHEAP!!! It's a wonderful tradition and very worth the drive out to visit this wonderful family.
