Fulton Farms U-Pick Christmas Trees

November 26 – December 5
Monday – Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Summer may bring beautiful vegetables and berries, but Fulton Farms brings the spirit with plenty of festive activities during the colder months.

There are fewer, more traditional activities than chopping down your own Christmas tree. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, enjoy a horse-drawn hayride to choose and cut your very own tree!

After the perfect tree has been chosen, stop into the cafe and warm up with a cup of coffee. Don’t forget to check out the market for last-minute gifts like Ohio-made goods, homemade pies, canned goods, jams, and salsas. Stop in the cafe and enjoy a cup of coffee, hand-dipped ice cream, or a delicious shake.


This is just a small sampling of what Miami County has to offer during the holiday season! For more information on these events and others, contact Miami County Visitors & Convention Bureau today.
