Page 13: Homegrown Christmas trees


Rows and rows of Christmas trees are set to brighten the holiday season at Holly Berry Hills Christmas Tree Farm in Harrison County.

Owner Larry Haley says it's been a banner year.

"Our business has been fantastic. I would say we're up 30 percent over last year," said Haley.

There's nothing quite like visiting a farm and picking out your own tree.

"You know you are getting a fresh tree when you buy it cut off at the stump. Can't get any fresher than that."

The debris is shaken from the tree, a hole is drilled and the Christmas centerpiece is prepared to go.

Picking out a tree is a rich family experience. At the farm they've set up things for the kids to do like a petting zoo, games and a walking trail. You can even take a train ride.

One of the great things about buying from a farm, besides supporting a local grower, is the many choices.

"We grow five varieties."

It's a great holiday tradition at Holly Berry Hills Christmas Tree Farm. The farm is located on Success road off Highway 67.
