There’s nothing like heading to a farm and picking out your own Christmas tree. Here are ten spots in New Jersey we recommend checking out; some only sell trees, while others make for a festive afternoon outing with snacks, hot chocolate and Christmas lights. (Since hours and availability vary by day and depending on weather, we recommend calling farms before visiting or checking out their social media pages.)
