(Bel Air, MD – November 21, 2008) – – With the holiday season now upon us, County Executive David R. Craig and the Division of Agriculture are reminding Harford’s families that we have many great Christmas tree farms right here in the county.
Harford County tree farms offer many varieties of pine, fir, and spruce. Some of the farms also have other goods and attractions such as wreaths, holiday crafts, baked goods, and even reindeer and train rides.
“Our Christmas tree farms provide not only the highest quality trees, but also fun family activities and an old fashioned holiday atmosphere,” remarked John Sullivan, III, Deputy Chief of Staff for Agriculture.
County Executive Craig added, “Our ‘Buy Local’ effort doesn’t end with the first frost. You can also support our farming community by buying local in the winter as well. I encourage Harford County families to make a trip to one of our Christmas tree farms a part of their holiday plans.”
