Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm opens for the season on the day after Thanksgiving in November with holiday fun for families until mid-December.
If you want the traditional family experience of going out and finding your tree, they have some beautiful Virginia pines, 5-12 feet tall, for only $69. You can ride out in a horse-drawn or tractor-drawn hayrack. The horses are there during select weekend hours, but the tractor-drawn hayrack ride is always available.
But did you know that, besides Christmas trees, Prairie Pines also sells fresh fir garland and tree trimmings in its Christmas shop and has family holiday activities too?
Prairie Pines is a favorite stop for Santa, who will be out to the farm on select Saturdays. They also have free train rides for the kids, Christmas carolers, and cookies and hot cocoa or cider sold by the Maize High music department.
Visits with Santa are free, but donations for his reindeer food fund are always appreciated. 🙂
The Christmas tree farm will be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. On weekdays, they’re open from 3 – 6 p.m. It’s located at 4055 N. Tyler Road in west Wichita.
