Time to Tag-Your-Own Christmas Tree at The Rocks Estate!

At The Rocks Estate, we believe it’s never too early to start thinking about – and planning for – the winter holidays! On that note, we open this weekend for Tag-Your-Own tree festivities, complete with early holiday shopping, Christmas tree tagging, and the North Country’s magnificent fall foliage.

Once again, The Rocks will be open to Tag-Your-Own tree seekers autumn weekends, from September 28 & 29 through October 19 & 20. Visitors are invited to roam the fields at The Rocks in search of the perfect Christmas tree, “tag” it with their own decorations and personal flair, and return when we open for the traditional holiday season (November 23-December 24) to cut and purchase their tagged trees.

Both the Marketplace at The Rocks and The Rocks Farm Store will be open during Tag-Your-Own weekends, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Shoppers are sure to find gifts for everyone on their “Nice” list, as well as festive decorations for the holidays. The shops feature an array of U.S.-made, locally-crafted, and Fair Trade items, from hand-painted ornaments and balsam-inspired soaps and candles to local jams and jellies and The Rocks’ own maple syrup.

Autumn is a beautiful time to visit The Rocks and take in the kaleidoscopic colors of the surrounding landscape. Beyond Tag Your Own tree seeking and getting a jump on holiday shopping, autumn at The Rocks is a great time to check out the New Hampshire Maple Experience, wander our extensive trails system, and learn more about The Rocks by taking a self-guided Mobile Tour of this picturesque property owned and maintained by the Society for the Protection of NewHampshire Forests
