Whether you want to cut your own tree, pick a live tree and have it cut for you, buy a tree already cut or buy a living tree you can plant, this page provides detailed listings of Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Central New Mexico's
choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms, places to buy pre-cut (also called pre-harvested and fresh-cut) trees, stands, sleigh rides,
hay rides and related winter events and fun. Some listings are for tree farms, others are tree lots, and some only offer hay rides, sleigh rides or other winter events. READ EACH LISTING to know what each facility offers. The farms are listed further down this page, so scroll down the page!

- ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO
- many farms and lots are selling out of trees early this year - Call to confirm their supply, their hours
and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.
All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For

Grande staging area is located approximately two miles inside the
Preserve along a north facing, often snow packed and icy unpaved road.

drifting snow can make the road sometimes impassable, even if it has

. Matched draft horses take you
through the historical ranch headquarters. From aboard the 60-minute
ride, you'll experience a winter wonderland with possible visions of
hunting birds and jumping coyotes. A guide will share the interesting
history and lore of the "old Baca Ranch," offering you insight into its
past and its future. With the deeper snows of winter, the horses will be
hitched to a large horse-drawn sleigh for an experience you'll long
savor. (Note: When snow is not sufficient, a horse-drawn wagon will be
used instead of the sleigh.) Horse-drawn tours are a great alternative
for those who are seeking an outdoor experience of a shorter duration
and with less exertion than hiking or skiing. Winter 2010/2011 Fees:
Adults $30, Seniors 62-and-over $24, Children 15-and-under $15, Children
$ Free (Age 5-and-under). Reservations are not required, but are
strongly encouraged due to the limited season and popularity of the
rides. We will accept walk-ins on the day of the ride ONLY if there are
seats available. Our sleigh comfortably holds 12 adults. Special
arrangements may be made for large groups or additional dates or times
by contacting us via email with your request including dates, numbers of
participants, and expectations.
