It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Formerly known as Plantation J.D.V., the Christmas tree farm is located on Rang 4 in Ormstown. Customers were greeted by many farm animals, and horse-drawn carriage rides amongst the trees were offered. New owners Andreanne Lasalle and Alex Quesnel took over last October and have opened the tree farm for two weekends only. December 3 and 4 will be the final weekend to choose your tree.

The Peddie Farmhouse Boutique, located on Fertile Creek Road in Howick, is open for those looking for the perfect tree. The last weekend for the boutique will be December 18. The Vallée des Vivaces in Godmanchester is also selling trees and will be open daily until December 22. The Scouts are also selling Christmas trees. They are taking preorders and will have some for sale at the MFCH market in Ormstown on Sunday, Dec 4 .To preorder a tree from the Scouts, call Heather at 450-264-3779. (YLL)
