Picking a Christmas tree during COVID-19

2020 has already been a year of big changes for the Holly Berry Hills Christmas Tree Farm in Saucier and COVID-19 is causing slight changes for their operations this holiday season.

Owner Larry Haley has passed on operations of the nearly 15 acre farm to his grandchildren and they’re hard at work preparing their Christmas trees for the holiday rush.

Due to the virus, some things will be different when selecting a tree, such as social distancing with staff members and doing a letters to Santa event instead of Santa appearing in person.

Despite the changes, Haley says picking out the perfect tree is still a safe, socially distant activity. “It is open air. The kids just have a ball out here and run and just do things and play. I think it’s good for the soul.”

The farm is preparing for two pre-tag dates on November 14th and 21st for the public to reserve trees and Thanksgiving Day is when the farm will begin their regular operations.
