November 21st – December 22nd: Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm

Date: Monday, November 21st – Thursday, December 22nd

Time: Mon-Sat 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. • Sun 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Location: Cedar Hill Farm // 008 Love Rd. • Hernando, MS 38632


Trees will be available, Nov. 21-Dec. 22, 2016 (closed Thanksgiving Day.) There is no admission to the farm during Christmas! You just pay for your tree, the hayride is free! Tree prices are $8.00 per foot (Plus Tax) for choose & cut trees. The prices vary on the pre-cut shipped in Fraser Firs from the tree stand. Saws are provided to cut the tree; if you prefer the farm can cut it and haul it for you.  They will shake the loose needles out, wrap it up and even tie it on your roof for you. It is highly recommend that you bring 3-4 bungee cords that are 2′-3′ in length to strap the tree to the roof of your car. They are much safer and faster than string, if you forget to bring some bungees the farm does have string.

The petting zoo, playground and gift shop are open every day. The last hayride leaves out to choose and cut tree fields at 4:30pm each day.

All prices are subject to change without notice. For more information please call 662-429-2540, visit www.gocedarhillfarm.com or email cedarhfarm@yahoo.com.

Cedar Hill Farm is a proud member of the Southern Christmas Tree Association www.southernchristmastrees.org.
