I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any, please email me ! And beware the copycat websites - from Monny-bloggers to out-and-out plagiarists, they simply copy my work; they are just out to make a quick buck. Since 2004, I am make updates and corrections every day! (let me know if you see copycats!)

Tips:

  • 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!
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Metro Ottawa, Ontario that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!
