As part of their on-going efforts to promote Loudoun-made, Loudoun-grown products, Loudoun Economic Development is publishing its annual holiday brochure promoting locally-grown Christmas trees, poinsettias, wreaths and other greens.
The deadline for Loudoun businesses to apply to have their products included in this year’s marketing campaign is Friday, October 19, 2018. To apply, fill out the online form at Biz.Loudoun.gov/TreeApp.
“This is a great opportunity for our local producers to showcase their products,” said Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer. “It’s become an annual tradition for many families throughout the D.C. area to come to Loudoun to cut their own trees and buy holiday products.”
Christmas in the Loudoun Valleys 2018 – Guide to Trees, Greens and Holiday Floral Products will feature Loudoun farms where customers can cut their own trees or buy evergreen wreaths and poinsettias. The guide will also include a map of participating farms, plus a tree-care guide with recycling tips, and information on fun activities taking place this holiday season in Loudoun.
“Loudoun farms produce unique experiences and products year-round,” said Acting Agricultural Development Officer Vanessa Wagner. “The holiday brochure is a great way to showcase Loudoun products during the winter season.”
The printed guide will be available at libraries and other public buildings around the county, and at participating farms. The electronic version will be online at LoudounFarms.org.
