Boys Home Christmas Tree Farm Opens on November 25, 2022
November 15th, 2022

On Friday, November 25, Boys Home Christmas Tree Farm will open for its 29th season. The updated hours for the 2022 season are below. In her bequest, Joanne Tannehill, left her Augusta County Tree Farm to Boys Home as a teaching and learning experience for students. The Boys Home Christmas Tree Farm is maintained throughout the year by the Christmas tree farm manager and students. In the spring, students assist with planting young seedlings and relocating mature transplants to the tree field. In the summer and fall, they shear trees and groom the fields. Once the Christmas tree farm opens, students assist visitors with choosing a Christmas tree, cutting down the tree and loading the tree on their vehicle. If you’re purchasing a live tree this season, please consider a visit to the Boys Home Christmas Tree Farm. The purchase will support an organization that serves as a home for the holidays and all year round for over forty young men.
