OSWEGO COUNTY - The holiday season is fast approaching, and Oswego County Christmas tree farmers are ready to help people find that perfect tree. Big or small, narrow or round, people can find a tree that is just right from one of the many local tree farms. Buying local not only supports Oswego County farm businesses, it also assures the people have the freshest tree possible. Fresh cut trees also smell better and keep their needles longer.
Buying a fresh and local Christmas tree is also a great bonding experience for families. Last year during the pandemic, many Christmas tree growers saw increased activity as families from across Oswego County were looking to get out of the house to do something fun. In many cases, the Christmas tree farmers saw brand new faces for the first time, especially young families. Faye Beckwith from Beckwith Family Christmas Tree Station in Hannibal, says it just right when she explains, “The experience of going to the farm to choose the perfect tree fosters family traditions and creates memories that last a lifetime.”
