Come On In, Warm Up, Browse & Enjoy
Once you select your tree, either from the field or from the pre-cut display, come inside the Christmas Barn to pay for it. While inside, you can sit on our big benches to warm up in front of the stove, enjoy a free cup of hot mulled cider, and look through what’s offered in the barn.
For The Tree
Custom Commemorative Ornament
Diane and Ernie Balch live right down the road in Malta. Every Christmas season they craft a unique Boulder Brook Farm ornament for your tree. Start your collection!
Your tree needs to be well-supported and well-watered. We stock two sizes of tree stands to make sure you’re properly equipped to set up and care for your tree at home.
Santa’s Magic Water Spout
The keys to a long-lasting indoor tree are getting it fresh and keeping it watered. This little funnel system makes it easy to monitor and replenish the water supply in your stand.
Our beekeeper George Howe keeps his hives right here on the Farm, just across the pond from the barn. Honey can’t get more local than that – and his is delicious.
Bruce Carpenter taps his own trees up by Lake Luzerne. He brings us fresh syrup, when he’s not tending to his own crop of Christmas trees.
Gladys Graser lives on Lake George, and has been making balsam pillows for as long as she can remember. What else in the world smells like Christmas all year?
Goat Milk Soap
Annelise Wood keeps her own goats at the family farm outside Schuylerville. Each bar is 4 ounces of natural softness. So good for your skin in so many ways!
Wreaths & Greens
We display our decorative wreaths on the rack just outside the Christmas Barn, to keep them fresh. Pick out a size you like for your front door – or to give to a friend! And – if you want to make some decorations at home, our crew in the Welcome Area usually has a pile of fresh branches trimmed from the trees. Just ask, and they’ll give you what you need – no charge!
Just for Fun…
While you’re in the barn warming up, sipping cider, and shopping, take a look at our collection of antique children’s sleds. Offer the kids even more insight into history, by showing them our display of ice harvesting tools. This old-fashioned practice used to be a big deal right here on Saratoga Lake!
