Turn tree shopping into a family outing at Mockingbird Hill Christmas Tree Farm in Lakeville, Mass.

The act of buying a Christmas tree can be so special that some people even plan momentous occasions around it.
That’s what happened at Mockingbird Hill Christmas Tree Farm in Lakeville, Mass., last year when one man planned his proposal at the farm. When his prospective bride said yes, Santa Claus, who visits the farm on the two weekends before Christmas, presented the engagement ring.
This is right in line with the family-run farm’s motto that it offers a “family experience” along with a pretty tree. The owners – the second generation of the Simmons family – give free hayrides to the fields to find and cut your tree, free hot chocolate and coffee, and of course, visits from St. Nick, who sometimes brings his own special talking Christmas tree.
In addition to the choose-and-cut trees, the farm sells pre-cut trees and live ones that you can plant after the holidays. Varieties that you can cut, or have the farm cut for you, include Scotch pine, Norway spruce, blue spruce, Fraser fir, concolor fir, Douglas fir and white pine. Pre-cut tree options are either balsam or Fraser firs and living trees varieties are Fraser fir, white spruce and Alberta spruce.
Farm staff will shake the dead needles out of your tree with special machine, net it and help get it onto your car. You can also pick up other festive decorations at the farm, including poinsettias, wreaths, roping and centerpieces.
And if you decide you’d like to be the family that stands out in your neighborhood, you can hire the farm, which has a 62-foot lift, to hang a huge wreath high on your house or to decorate an outside tree as tall as 50 feet. Your experience can then be shared with the whole neighborhood.

It is with regret that I have to inform you of the passing of Leavitt C. Simmons. He passed with a brief illness on 03/26/21. He was ninety years old and passed at home in his favorite room that he built with a great view of the farm and the many bird houses that he put up. His Son Tom and his Granddaughter Sarah were at his side when he passed. He is now reunited with his wife May. He and his wife May were the matriarchs of Mockingbird Hill Christmas Tree Farm. They started planting in 1973 and opened November 1982. We will miss them dearly. It is currently a third generation tree farm with a young fourth generation growing with the trees.
