‘Tis the Season

PHOTOS/VIDEO: Christmas tree farm celebrates 20th anniversary

A family tradition for many this time of year is bringing the nature indoors. Christmas trees will adorn homes throughout the North Okanagan over the holiday season.

While some have resorted to the fake version, there’s nothing quite like the fresh scent of a real tree.

For the Christmas Ranch Tree Farm in Lumby, families have been coming out to the farm for two decades.

The farm celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and welcomes everyone out to take in the winter wonderland the owners have created.

From the experience of getting a tree, to enjoying hot chocolate and pulling the kids around sleds, there’s fun for everyone just in time for Christmas.
