Our family owned and operated farm, established in 1980, is located in northern Culpeper County and sits atop a hill with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge mountains.

We grow White Pine and Norway Spruce trees, without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and all of our trees are hand sheared for a natural look. We provide saws for your convenience and after you select and cut your tree we will bundle it and tie it to your car.

Our farm store features a beautiful selection of local handmade crafts and food items, most of which are produced by members of our extended family. Our products include wooden ornaments, kitchen items, and toys, jams, apple butter, honey, baked goods, beeswax candles, handmade ornaments, pork and eggs, and more. We also sell holiday decorations such as wreaths, sprays, garland and centerpieces, as well as tree stands and removal bags. For more about our products and the people who make the items in our shop please visit our website at www.oakshadechristmastreefarm.com.

We welcome well behaved pets, but ask that they remain leashed at all times during your visit.

We are open from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, Wed-Sun 9-5.

We love this farm!

5.0/ 5

This is a great tree farm! This has been our favorite family tradition for several years. We love getting to sit around the bonfire before we head out to pick out our perfect tree to cut down together as a family. The Mellos take great care of their customers. We love the gift shop.

Christmas Spirit Galore

5.0/ 5

My family and I have been getting our Christmas tree each year along with gifts and home decor items since I was a child. I continued the tradition when I got married and now bring my husband, children, and their partners for the same amazing experience each year. If you need some inspiration and magic to start off your holiday season this is the place. So delighted and proud to call the Mello’s family!
