THE ROCKS BRINGS THE HOLIDAYS ALIVE WITH TREES, HORSE-DRAWN WAGON RIDES, CHEER, AND MORE

Open Daily Starting November 23 for Cut-Your-Own Trees

There’s no better place to get into the holiday spirit than on Christmas Lane, home of the Forest Society’s The Rocks’ Christmas Tree Farm. Holiday cheer is alive this season with cut-your-own trees, retail trees, wreaths, maple syrup, horse-drawn wagon rides, visits from Green Father Christmas, and a fire pit to warm your toes.  

“Even with the fire at The Rocks last winter, we will still be bringing the spirit of Christmas to The Rocks with trees, wreaths, and maple syrup,” said Nigel Manley, longtime manager of The Rocks. “The Rocks has been a long-standing holiday tradition for families and the community and we’re dedicated to keeping that spirit and tradition alive.”

The Rocks opens for cut-your-own trees November 23 to December 15, open daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. (closed Thanksgiving Day). The Rocks lost its gift shop in the fire, but will still be selling trees, wreaths, and maple syrup. The Rocks is operating as usual during the weekends with sales at the main buildings on Glessner Road in Bethlehem. Weekday sales will be at 686 Main Street (Route 302), right on the highway across from the Adair Inn in Bethlehem.

The Rocks’ own Green Father Christmas will be here Saturdays, November 23 and 30th and December 7 and 14th. Horse-drawn wagon rides, a favorite among the young and old alike, will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 23, 29, and 30th and December 1, 7, 8, 14, and 15th. Reservations are highly recommended.

The Rocks has been featured on WMUR, New Hampshire Chronicle, Good Morning America, and in Yankee Magazine. The Rocks’ shopper-friendly online store will offer holiday wreaths and The Rocks’ own maple syrup. All items include free shipping, and customers may create a holiday wish list and ship to multiple addresses with one order. Mail order shopping is open through Dec. 15.
