Christmas Tree Farms = Hot Chocolate, Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides, and Trees Galore
Our family takes the same Christmas tree farm pictures in the same spot every single year – grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and all. And we love it. For others, it’s a tradition to try a new Christmas tree farm each year. The fun and anticipation are a blast for families experiencing something new.
Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, it’s a tradition in our family to head to Zokvic Tree Farm just west of Lansing. You won’t find it in a Google search, but when you arrive you’ll be greeted by an adorable couple who’s passionate about their beautiful trees.
It’s much the same for many families in Lansing with their own favorite Christmas tree farm as the destination. Some farms offer FREE hot chocolate, a visit with Santa, wagon rides, and more.
