It’s that time of year when you can’t go a few miles without seeing Christmas tree stands alongside the road and bushy trees tightly bound on top of cars and headed to
their new homes for the holidays 🌲
If those sights don’t get you into the seasonal spirit, the scent of freshly cut fir certainly will! In our opinion, it's one of the coziest fragrances on earth 💜 Interested in bundling up your own evergreenery? Check out this list of fantastic Loudoun County farms for this awesome family tradition!

Milltown grows Blue and White spruce; Douglas and Concolor Fir; Scotch, White and Southwestern White Pine — plus, this variety ranges in height from tabletop size up to 10-footers! If you prefer, you can also skip the sawing and select a fresh pre-cut tree or wreath. Pop into the Christmas Shop, where you'll find handmade ornaments, tree stands and cider. With scenic views, complimentary hot cider on the weekends, and life-size cartoon caricatures for picture-taking opportunities, the Milltown experience will quickly become a favorite holiday memory!
