Florida: What To Know About Our Best Christmas Tree Farm

The Pioneer Woman Magazine recently published a list of the best Christmas Tree Farms in every state. In Florida, you’ll have to travel to the central part of the state to get to what they say is the best Christmas Tree farm in the area. And you will be in for a memorable experience that allows you to explore thousands of trees. Each of the locations that Pioneer Woman named offers acres of fresh Christmas trees grown right onsite at the property. Then, you either cut down the tree of your choice or select one that the staff takes down for you. “The best part is that you’ll be supporting a local farm, many of which have been in their families for generations,” they state. Your efforts give back to the local community, and it’s a great way to kick off a festive holiday season. The best Christmas Tree Farm in Florida, according to them, is also well known for their hayrides. Gibbs Christmas Tree Farm in Citra Florida Located on East Highway in Citra, Gibbs Christmas Tree Farm announced in October that they are ready for a great 2023 holiday season. "After three tough years of shortages and many years of dry summers, we installed an irrigation system and of course had one of the wettest summers in years," they said in a Facebook post. Now in its 23rd season, Gibbs Christmas Tree Farm officially opened right after Thanksgiving—specifically, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. "You'll find choose-and-cut Sand Pines or pre-cut Fraser Firs, the latter of which are brought in fresh from North Carolina," Pioneer Women explains. The in-ground trees are planted in lines allowing customers to navigate the property conveniently. Then, you can hop on the hayride for a complete tour of the farm. Finally, wreaths, snack items, and drinks are also sold at Gibbs Christmas Tree Farm, allowing you to make a complete day of this holiday experience.
