Why Christmas trees?  Clagett Farm is a hilly place--not the right spot for a lot of plowing.  The hills have been heavily eroded from the years of tobacco farming before our time, which makes them a poor spot for most crops.  Christmas trees are a way of keeping the hills covered in vegetation, providing insect and animal habitat, and still making some money. 

As it happens, they also make a great spot for wandering around outside in the sunshine on a wintery day with your family and friends.  Bring a picnic, your dog, and enjoy the fresh air. 

Consider measuring your ceiling height before you come.  A tree that looks small under the big, open sky suddenly looks larger inside your house!
