Head to the Christmas Tree Farm this Year! Tree Farms In and Around Jax

It’s already that time of year! The Halloween decorations are coming down, and it’s almost time to start decorating for the holidays. Nothing quite makes the festive atmosphere complete, though, like a Christmas tree! And there are tons of options, of course: you can use an artificial tree, you can go to a Christmas tree lot… or you can go for an exciting new experience for your littles, and check out a Christmas tree farm! It may be surprising, but even here in Florida, there are farms where you can not only get your very own Christmas tree, but cut it down yourself, too! Talk about a holiday experience to remember!

Born and raised in the Aloha state and a traveling gypsy at heart, Chantel left the nest fresh out of high school and headed off for college in sunny Southern California. Almost a decade later she met and fell madly in love with her hubby who whisked her off to the great Midwest. After five brutal winters in Nebraska, Chantel realized that home will always be where the ocean is (and the snow isn’t), so off to Jacksonville they went, where this Hawaiian girl now spends her days as a stay-at-home wrangler to her two baby bears. Prior to becoming a household CEO, she joyfully spent her time as the Program Assistant Director of a preschool. Digging deep into wellness and health is her jam alongside spontaneous dance parties with her kiddos are what sing to her soul. Chantel is wildly passionate about advocating for her son, who lives with multiple severe food allergies. You can find her out and about on a daily basis as she is a self-proclaimed busy body and loves hitting up the beach or exploring new spots in town while homeschooling her kiddos. If you ever see this fast-paced mama on the go, be sure to say hi because she is always up for meeting new people and making new friends!

  1. We just moved from Westchester NY and have a family tradition of picking and cutting our 🎄
    We are in Ponte Vedra and are looking at options not too far

  2. Christmas tree farms are great! I remember going to pick out a Christmas tree as a kid and it being a memorable tradition each year.

    There is a great Christmas Tree Lot in Callahan called Griffin Farm Fresh Christmas Trees. They give a fresh cut on each tree to make them last longer. Service is top notch! I put their website address in if you click on my name.
