  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • 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 more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here !
    DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM (by phone, email or find current information on their website or Facebook page!

Proceed through the main gate and down the snow packed road approximately 2 miles to the Valle Grande staging area. You will be directed on where to park. You will board a van from here to take you to the sleigh/wagon. The Valle Grande staging area is located approximately two miles inside the Preserve along a north facing, often snow packed and icy unpaved road. We will plow road when weather permits but four wheel drive and/or chains are recommended and may at times be required. On windy days drifting snow can make the road sometimes impassable, even if it has recently been plowed. Click here for a map and directions . 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.

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.
