With the cold weather heading toward the Chippewa Valley in full force, Pleasant Valley Tree Farm in Elk Mound is gearing up for the holiday season. They offer many events and happenings, as well as opening up their very own special Country Store where you can shop to find that perfect gift for anyone on your list (including yourself!).
Many families share a tradition of cutting down their own tree for Christmas, and Pleasant Valley Tree Farm offers a great setting for this. A free wagon ride takes you out to the tree field where you are given a saw and a hearty “good luck” wish. After you find “the one,” Pleasant Valley shakes the tree to remove any debris, bales it up for easy transport and set-up, and even ties it to your vehicle. They also offer hot chocolate, hot cider and popcorn to help your warm up after your adventure.
While you sip your cocoa, check out the Country Store, open from November 2 through December 23rd. It is brimming with unique gifts, many with a casual or upscale country/lodge theme. Everything from nativity sets to santas, snowmen and floral arrangements. Looking for an ornament? They have thousands to choose from. You can also create your own festive gift basket with linens, scented candles and gourmet foods.
Pleasant Valley also offers precut Christmas trees and beautiful evergreen wreaths. Their fresh balsam and Fraser fir wreaths are handmade at the farm and individually decorated with designer ribbons, pinecones and berries.
