ASHEVILLE – Want to have a really “green” Christmas?
Then come out with the Western North Carolina Alliance as we host an outing to What Fir! Choose and Cut Christmas Tree Farm on Sunday, Dec. 2.
We’ll meet at the What Fir! Tree Farm and owner Nathaniel Maram will take us on a tour of the farm and share a history of its transition to natural growing practices.
The What Fir! Tree Farm offers the option to buy a Christmas tree grown without the use of synthesized chemicals. What Fir! has not used any pesticides or herbicides for five years, and the abundance of Fraser Firs on the tree farm are evidence of the success of organic farming practices.
What Fir! is located on 50 acres outside Boone. Visiting the farm can be a great day-long event that includes choosing your own tree, taking a hayride, hiking, sledding, shopping for wreaths and other Christmas decorations, and enjoying a cup of warm cider.
