We started a family tradition of cutting our own tree back in NJ at a farm in Griggstown / Princeton along the canal just north of the causeway. We've been hooked since. Courier and Ives we're not but it's still a fun tradition.
We've tried a few different farms here in Central VA and LaRon Christmas Tree farm is our favorite. They are very close to Goochland, in Powhatan, and always have a fine selection of trees and a very family friendly atmosphere. They were closed a year or two due to drought issues so we tried a few others that were just fine too.
Just a little further away are Hanover Pines in Beaverdam and Nuckols Christmas Tree Plantation in Cumberland. I've used a number of web sites to search for the local farms and have found these to be quite helpful:
Everyone had fun adding their own assortment of ornaments to the miss miss tree this year. We had some new paper chains made and added them to the older faded ones. We've gradually replaced most all lights with LEDs and add new vacation ornaments every year.
The kids decided that the Geo Trax belonged under the tree and then put the village up this year.
