Blue Ridge Conservancy Presents ‘Old-Fashioned Farm Christmas,’ Hosts Choose & Cut on Saturday, Dec. 1

Nov. 13, 2012. Blue Ridge Conservancy (BRC) will host its first annual Christmas Tree Choose & Cut, Saturday, Dec. 1, on the Old Orchard Creek Farm located at 410 Swansie Shepard Road in Lansing.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., anyone is welcome to take part in the High Country’s time-honored tradition of Christmas tree cutting. Trees start at $40, and cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

Cider, hot chocolate and other holiday treats will also be provided in the blueberry shed on the farm. Bring your family and come celebrate the holidays with BRC. 

“Everyone is invited to come out to the beautiful Ashe County countryside and cut a Christmas tree to help support Blue Ridge Conservancy’s mission to protect our North Carolina resources,” said Walter Clark, Executive Director of BRC.

All proceeds will benefit BRC and its mission to permanently protect land and water resources with agricultural, ecological, cultural, recreational and scenic value in northwest North Carolina.

Blue Ridge Conservancy is a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization incorporated in North Carolina. Since our founding, we have protected over 16,000 acres in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes and Yancey Counties. In addition to protecting working farmland, BRC’s efforts have resulted in the creation of state natural areas like Beech Creek Bog, Bear Paw and Bullhead Mountain. We continue to help Elk Knob State park expand its borders and in 2008 we led the way in establishing a 2,000-acre State Game Land preserve on Pond Mountain in Ashe County.
