The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development invites area families to bring home Loudoun-grown greens, plants and Christmas trees this holiday season. Information about participating Loudoun businesses is now available in the free publication Christmas in the Loudoun Valleys – 2016 Guide to Trees, Greens and Holiday Floral Products.
This printed guide features:
- Participating Loudoun County tree farms and other outlets where you can choose and cut your own tree and purchase evergreens or locally grown poinsettia plants;
- A detailed map showing farm locations;
- A tree care guide;
- Information on fun activities taking place this holiday season in Loudoun.
“Seven years of care go into every Loudoun-grown tree,” said Economic Development Executive Director Buddy Rizer. “Purchasing from the farms in this guide is a terrific way to not only support our local growers, but to make lasting family memories as you visit their farms, select a tree and bring the holidays into your home.”
This year, the department has also partnered with Param Solutions to offer a smartphone app that will help families find participating tree farms and holiday activities in Loudoun. The “LC Farm Tour” app is available for download at the Apple & Google Play stores. This free app features up-to-date lists of where to buy trees and greenery, and holiday events taking place in Loudoun towns.
Many of the farms open for the season the day after Thanksgiving. For specific farm information and to receive a copy of the guide, visit www.loudounfarms.org/christmastrees.Download iTunes/Apple App Download Google/Android App
