Barclay’s Christmas Tree Farm

Address: 35 Orchardside Drive, Cranbury
Details: This choose-and-cut, family-owned and operated farm has been in business for more than 45 years. Their two most popular trees are the Douglas Fir and the Fraser Fir.

Trees up to 12 feet are $60; trees over 12 feet are $120.

Belly Acres Christmas Tree Farm

Address: 665 Royal Avenue, Franklinville
Details: When the property was first purchased in 1966, it was an apple orchard. The family’s boys often got bellyaches from eating too many apples. Their mom would tell them, “Quit your belly aching,” which led to the farm’s name. Apple growing didn’t go well and over the years, the family started growing Christmas trees instead. All trees, regardless of size, are $60. The farm primarily grows Douglas Firs but an increasing selection of Concolor Firs, Fraser Firs, and Blue Spruces are available.
Why I like it: Staff will cut down your selected tree for you, but you can help if you want.
More info: Visit the website or give them a call.

Exley’s Christmas Tree Farm

Address: 1512 Monroeville Road, Monroeville & 1535 Tanyard Road, Sewell
Details: Exley’s Christmas Tree Farm now has two locations to better serve its customers. But this is more than your average tree farm; for instance, depending on the location, you’ll find hay rides, sleigh rides, even Santa Land (filled with animated holiday houses); as well as train displays, train rides, fire pits, scavenger hunts, and more. Wreaths, roping, grave blankets, and custom greenery are also available.
Why I like it: Both Exley’s locations allow early tree tagging, so head on out and claim your perfect tree.
More info: Visit the website or call 856-468-5949.
