We are closed Thanksgiving, open Black Friday!

The farm will be closed to the public on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22. We will open on Black Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. for cut-your-own Christmas trees, and we will remain open every Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 25, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During Christmas tree season, farm admission will be $5 per person (children 2 and younger free). We will have our mountain slides, straw barn swings and other farm enjoyment, but we will not run hayrides during the holiday season (it tends to be too cold!). Even if you don’t need a tree, this is a great option for bringing out-of-town family guests out to enjoy some fresh air.

We sell cut-your-own blue spruces for $95 per tree. Price includes tax, use of a saw, baling and twine.

We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards. Dogs on leash are welcome on our farm.

Christmas photography

If you are coming to the farm for a professional photography session, we charge a $20 photography fee per session or client. In addition, all members of your party (including those who will not be in the photo) will need to pay the $5 admission fee.

We are open at all times to photographers, and no appointment is needed.  Photographers should deposit this money (cash or check only) in the box at the carport in advance of the session, and sign into the book. If we have to chase you down, the fee will be $100. Our photography policy can also be found here.

CSA News

We want to invite all of our CSA members to join us at the farm for a potluck supper on Wed., Oct. 3, from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. This is the same day you’ll pick up your quadruple fall box packed with pumpkins and other fall goodies, so mark your calendars (and remember that all CSA members get the fall box at Snead’s Farm, regardless of where you’ve picked up during the summer).

This has been a very enjoyable CSA season for us here on the farm, and we want to get our members together for food and fun. Bring a dish for your family or to share. We will have The Well at Snead’s Farm serving simple fare like chili dogs and Snead’s Farm corn on the cob. We’ll also have a few local breweries on hand selling brews they’ve made with our ingredients this year. We hope it will be a fun evening of celebrating the local harvest, something our CSA members play a big role in.

We are already offering CSA shares for the 2019 season. Find the contract here. We will have it in the online store shortly. Join before Oct. 3 to take advantage of the 10 percent discount.

Thanks for a great season, we’ll see you in October!
