The Farm

High above the hustle and bustle of everyday life there is a magical place with rolling hills, ponds, and more than 80 acres of beautiful Fraser Fir Christmas Trees. Nestled among the trees is a haven of tiny little elf-sized cottages – each with its own elfish decor. Every year, in late November, the Elf Village comes to life with holiday fun for kids of all ages, as Tom Sawyer’s Christmas Tree Farm reveals the best selection of fresh trees in all shapes and sizes.

Our family-run farmstead practically glows with Christmas magic year-round, but during the months of November and December, the elves stir up special fun and frolic for everyone. Come see what we mean! Make this holiday season one your family will remember and treasure for years to come!

Tom Sawyer’s Christmas Tree Farm and Elf Village is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina on the Highlands/Cashiers Plateau overlooking Lake Glenville. At about 3800 feet elevation, Lake Glenville is the highest large reservoir in the eastern U.S., with over 1400 acres of water surface. The lake’s cool mountain waters provide a beautiful backdrop for our farm.  We have over eighty acres dedicated to growing the finest Fraser Firs, ranging from 3’ to 13’ in height.

Just 6 miles from the Village of Cashiers, we invite you to Choose ‘n Cut your own Christmas tree, or we’ll cut one for you, then experience our magical Elf Village for lots of fun family and holiday festivities.  We also have horse & carriage rides on the weekends (weather permitting) and Santa is here on the weekends!  Take a few minutes to stroll through our gift shop, purchase some gifts, or find something special to take home for yourself!

Choose ‘n Cut hours start the Saturday before Thanksgiving from 9 am to 5 pm – come rain, shine, or even snowfall!  We are closed Thanksgiving Day to spend time with our family.

Bring the kids and/or grand kids. Bring the dog too! (on leash please) Feel free to bring your own picnic lunch as well!

From our family to yours, may the peace and joy of the holiday season stay with you all year long!
