Cedar Hill BridgeCedarhill Christmas Tree Farm

Just 30 minutes from Ottawa, we offer a delightful destination for individuals and families during both weekdays and weekends. It doesn’t cost a thing just to visit!

A wonderful family Christmas tradition in Pakenham for three decades, we offer a great time out to folks in a variety of ways.

You don’t need to buy a tree to enjoy the Farm!

It doesn’t cost a thing to visit the farm, and there is no expectation that you need to cut or buy a tree. Consider coming for a quiet lunch or treat during the more relaxed weekdays. Getting a bit stir-crazy with kids at home? Consider coming just to use the sliding hill and take a sleigh ride, followed by a hot chocolate by the fire, indoors or out.

Traditional activities at the farm

Cut your own tree or buy pre-cut. We also offer handmade wreaths, delicious food and drinks, family activities including a sliding hill, horse drawn sleigh rides, tractor rides, and more.

We also invite pet owners to bring their dogs; please be sure to review our Dog Policy before you visit.

Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm is owned by The Martin Family; find out more about the farm’s history.
