Tree Picking At Bast Brothers.

I had been debating on which tree farm to go to this year, and because we are adventurous, and like change, and trying new things we decided to go to Bast brothers to see if their trees were in, and they were. And they are absolutely beautiful. The fact that they come all the way from North Carolina got us sold. The trees down south are no doubt the best looking trees and because of the pine makes them smell great too! The wreaths are also done beautifully. The talent these ladies have in decorating the wreaths is amazing. They also have a little shop inside the barn with handmade gifts such as soy candles, birch log tea lights, white birch coasters, and these hand painted stockings made of burlap are one of the cutest I've ever seen! 
It didn't take us very long to find a tree that we liked and so with the help of the kids we all decided on a blue spruce. 

The environment was so cozy and friendly that it took us a while to leave this place. The family that owns it were extremely friendly and accommodated our every need. The kids lounged around for a bit inside the barn while drinking some hot chocolate, and I was admiring all the wreaths on display.
^^^ The kids especially loved this hot chocolate bar. What a nice set up! ^^^ 

I really enjoyed talking with Allie who is part of the family. She truly was a gem in telling us a bit about the business, and how she and her husband got in it together. It was interesting to hear about their story, and how they've made this quaint place a thriving business. They've only been open for a year, but I guarantee you won't be disappointed with their service, and trees! 
^^^ Upon leaving Noah was in awe with the saw in trimming the tree trunk, and how they netted the tree. He asked how did they do that, and papa "said magic!" ^^^
We all had so much fun as a family tree picking, and so glad we bought one this early. I want to able to decorate the house, and have a tree put up before Sierra comes home so she truly can be like Karen Carpenter and sing, " there's no place like home for the holidays!" This is our favorite part of Christmas, and a tradition we want to keep on having. 

If it wasn't for Lexie having an audition at Woodstown high school we would've never seen this big old wreath with a sign that read wreaths and trees coming soon. 
Things definitely happen for a reason and I'm so glad I listened to that voice telling us to go back because this has got to be the best hidden gem in all of Mullica hill. And I'm so glad we stopped by! 

Hope your holiday season is off to a great start!
