Oh Christmas Trees!
There’s still time to get a fresh cut Christmas Tree before Santa arrives. This year why not make it an Norman Rockwell experience? After all what could be more idyllic than cutting your own tree as soft white snowflakes peacefully flutter to the ground around you?
Booth’s Tree Farm in Orland, Indiana offers a unique experience among u-cut Christmas Tree experiences. Casey and Prince, a trusty team of horses, happily haul families and their trees in an old fashioned wagon to and from the neatly planted rows of trees.
Bill Booth partnered with his father in the early 60s on the tree farm, which they originally started near Miller Poultry. Nearly three decades later he moved it up the road a mile or two to it’s current location. Every spring he and his wife Bonnie plant 4 varieties of pine tree on their 40-acre farm. And every Christmas they sell upwards of 5,000!
Don’t have your own saw? No problem, Booth’s has a steady supply on hand. Not sure how to cut your own tree? The helpful staff will show you how it’s done. Rather get a fresh tree, but don’t want to cut it yourself? They can take care of you there too, with a large selection of pre-cut trees. They also have plenty of fresh wreaths and greens for hanging.
Once a tree has been selected and Casey and Prince have hauled it back, the modern equipment takes over. All trees are shaken for free. Whether it’s snow, needles, or a little something else from the great outdoors, the shaker gets almost everything free. Wrapping the tree is only $1.
Inside the warming house, customers can thaw out with hot chocolate, coffee, and other holiday treats.

They’ll be open every day up to Christmas Eve.
