Kinsey Family Farm has a plethora of trees available to choose from. The farm offers a variety of ways to harvest a Christmas tree including choose and cut your own, pre-cut, and living trees in containers.

This year is the farm’s 18th anniversary and as is ‘our tradition we love to give a small gift to our visiting friends . . . our annual pewter Christmas tree ornament.’ 

The ornament is included with the purchase of a Christmas tree, while supplies last and doesn’t include Charlie Brown trees or table toppers.

And our Christmas tree farm just wouldn’t feel complete without the classic Charlie Brown Christmas Tree . . . which we have plenty of in our barns! These “table toppers” are perfect for older couples that don’t desire a large tree anymore and are also fun for children to have in their rooms! Just don’t let those rascally Christmas “Elf on the Shelf” Elves get into them . . . we’ve seen some crazy “tree decorating” when that happens.

When: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday-Friday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

Where: 7170 Jot Em Down Road, Gainesville, GA 30506

Contact: 770-887-6028,, or on Facebook and Instagram @kinseyfamilyfarm.
