This past Saturday was so warm, it was the perfect day to get our Christmas tree. We decided we wanted to visit a cut your own tree farm. We ended up deciding to visit Dreamland Christmas Tree Farm to cut down our Christmas tree.
Dreamland Christmas Tree Farm is located in Middletown, Maryland.
The road leading to the farm is narrow so watch for cars as you drive in. We parked in the overflow parking area and it was a short walk to the barn and then on to the trees.
Walking up to the open barn you pass a firepit with plenty of seating. Next to the open barn are a number of pre-cut Christmas Trees.
At the open barn, we spoke with one of the young men working. He gave us a brochure with a map and price as well as a saw to cut down our Christmas tree.
As we walked to the tree fields our little man had to stop and play on the swing set.
After numerous times down the slide, we made it to the trees.
The little man had tons of fun running up and down the rows of trees. He loved exploring the little forest and pointing out the baby trees and the big ones.
After walking 90% of the trees while the little man explored we found our Christmas tree. (No we aren’t that picky it was such a warm November day we just let the little man set our pace. )
Jared made quick work cutting down our Christmas tree and the kids loved watching him.
After cutting down our tree we took it to one of the paths and it was picked up by a couple boys on a 4 wheeler so we didn’t have to carry it back to the barn.
At the open barn, we were given a price tag to take to the enclosed barn to pay for our tree.
Pricing of the trees wasn’t bad. Prices ranged from $45-$55 for trees under 10 feet.
In the barn, there are garlands, wreaths and other decors for sale. As well as a snack bar, seating, and a couple fireplaces.
Once we paid for our tree we went and got the van.
Loading the tree was really fast and easy. We pulled right up to the open barn, told them our entails (they ask for them when they pick up the tree) and they loaded the tree for us.
Visting Dreamland Christmas tree farm was a lot of fun, we really enjoyed our family outing among the trees.
A few tips for visiting the Farm
Wear good shoes – The day we visited it was muddy so be prepared for dirt. Also, it’s a real farm so there are stumps from previously cut trees, as well as baby trees to watch out for.
Bring the Camera – Taking pictures among the trees was so fun. I had dreams of matching outfits and beautiful family photos among the trees. That so didn’t happen but we have some fun candid shots of one of our family adventures. The boys that loaded our tree even took a family picture of us with our tree.
Take Your Time – I know this is somewhat contingent on the weather, but if it’s a nice day take your time. Let your kids explore the area and just enjoy being outside together as a family.
