This holiday season, Loudoun Economic Development is encouraging consumers in the region to shop local, small businesses with its Take Loudoun Home for the Holidays guide.
Whether your farm or rural business provides locally-grown Christmas trees, poinsettias, wreaths, garlands, or artisan products perfect for personal and corporate gifts, then the annual holiday guide is right for you.
The deadline for Loudoun businesses to apply to have their products included in this year’s marketing campaign is Friday, October 18, 2019. To apply, fill out the online form at Biz.Loudoun.gov/TreeApp.
“This is a guide of memories in the making. Countless families throughout the region trust Loudoun farms as a source for high-quality trees and gifts that are perfect for any holiday wish list,” said Loudoun Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer. “This guide helps spread the word that Loudoun is open for business this holiday season.”
The Take Loudoun Home for the Holidays guide will feature a map of Loudoun farms where customers can cut their own trees or buy evergreen wreaths and poinsettias. The guide will also include locations where people can buy a pre-cut tree sourced from a Loudoun farm, as well as businesses selling unique gifts and experiences.
“Loudoun County boasts a 12-month growing season to accommodate its wide array of farm products,” said Business Development Officer for Agriculture and Business Services John Magistro. “The holiday brochure is a great way to boost business sales throughout the holiday season, at no cost to the business owner.”
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.
