Crane Neck Christmas Tree Farm – West Newbury, MA

Today the four of us set out to cut down our own Christmas tree! Sure part of us was thinking it was terrible to cut down a tree, bu the other part was tarnished from last year’s experience we wanted it to be as fresh as fresh could be.

So after some research we decided to head to Crane Neck Christmas Tree Farm in West Newbury. Such a nice, family-friendly place. I vaguely remember cutting down our tree 15 years so with the McIntyre family but it’s completely foreign and out of my mind.

Upon arrival we were greeted and asked if we knew what type of tree we wanted to find. I said we had loved the look of the Fraiser Fir from last year but the experience with it dying with a week of getting it home was so poor, we wanted to see what they had first. One thing was for sure, I wanted to get a glance at their $5.00 trees, yep that is right, $5.00 trees! They were nothing worth taking but we had some laughs.

We were told the general direction of some trees which would fit our needs and off we went complete with a sleigh for pulling the tree back and a saw. It sort of backfired on us as Maebh was so tired she cried and hated almost every minute of the expedition. Soren had a lot of fun and next year will just be better!

A little past the $50 and $60 trees was a little section of “discounted trees” with tags… well a few were terrible and most were half decent. I think we lucked out too because come tomorrow (Saturday & Sunday) I think most of the “cheapo” trees will be taken.

Enjoy the photos, we had a lot of fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you believe it, FIVE DOLLARS!  A bit like Charlie Brown’s tree – but decorated it will be great!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

A Boston girl currently living in Dublin, Ireland snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journeys from the USA to the UK. We were there for a couple years then onto Ireland for the past 3+ years. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is 1/2 American & 1/2 Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring Europe and beyond with our two amazing kids. It’s essentially a journal of our family.
