HARPERSVILLE –Old Baker Farm in Harpersville continues its tradition of tree-cutting and Christmas tree lighting this season.
According to event coordinator Leah Harry, Old Baker Farm is a working farm with crops and livestock.
“We grow cotton, pumpkins and corn, and have many kinds of animals the boys and girls enjoy seeing,” she said.
Harry said the farm has offered “choose and cut” Christmas trees for about 30 years.
The Christmas tree sale began the day after Thanksgiving and will continue until Christmas Eve. According to the website, types of trees available include Virginia Pine, Leyland Cypress, Carolina Sapphire, Arizona Sapphire, Limited Red Cedars and Fraser Firs.
The second annual “Christmas on the Farm” event will be Dec. 8-9 from 5-9 p.m.
The event includes cookies with Santa, Christmas tree lighting, a classic Christmas movie, s’mores pit, local vendors, food trucks, choir and live Nativity scene.
Harry said the tree lighting will be at 6 p.m., and the movie begins at 6:30 p.m.
“We want to give customers an additional experience to add to their traditions,” Harry said. “We’re a traditional Southern family, and we think going from pumpkin season to the Christmas season is an important time to spend with family as we celebrate the real meaning of the season—the birth of Jesus.”
Admission is $10 and free for children 2 years old and younger.
Old Baker Farm is located at 184 Furrow Lane in Harpersville. The farm can be reached at 672-7209.
