Does anybody know of a good Christmas tree farm on the Eastside? We want to take DD off to tromp through the "woods" to pick out a tree (not just a parking lot with pre-cut trees!), and maybe drink some cider and ride on a wagon... is there a good place to go that's not too far from Bellevue?

It feels like there are a bazillion out here in North Bend. I've been to two and they both had hot cider etc. I can't remember the name of the one I really liked, but it was north of town...you could just get to North Bend and look for signs. Crown Tree Farm was OK but felt a little more like you were in someone's backyard. There is also one off Cedar Falls Road - take exit 32 and go south (right if you're coming from Bellevue). Just as the road starts to climb you'll see a turn on the left which is well-signed. Never been, but I've heard it is cute.

It's probably flooded now, but should be more clear by this weekend or next, but we love this little tree farm off of SR 203 between Carnation and Duvall. I think it's called something like "Ronnei Tree Farm", but not 100% sure. It's small, and new as of 2 years ago. But they always have cookies and cider or cocoa and the two families that own/run it are super nice. Both years we've gone they've helped us get our tree on the car and tied down and such and been really nice to my ds. And the prices are really good too! No wagon rides, though.

Here is a link from the Puget Sound Farm Guide that's really helpful. (link broken--close up the space) Call before you go b/c of all the rain we've having!<br><br><a href="http://www" target="_blank">http://www</a>. pugetsoundfresh.org/<br><br>
Funny story: The 1st year we moved here from Colorado we drove to a tree farm in the North Bend/Issaquah area. When we got there they said there were no more cut-your-own trees available. They showed us some they had on their lot and we asked where it came from. Imagine our laughter when he said "Colorado". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

This is where we go: <a href="http://www.red-woodfarm.com" target="_blank">http://www.red-woodfarm.com</a><br><br>
They have a smaller farm and you can walk out amongst the trees, they have cider and hot chocolate. Oh, and for wagon rides, typically you walk out into the tree field yourself, cut a tree, and then there is a tractor and wagon that will come and pick you up and take you back to the front. There have also been years where they've taken us out on the wagon as well.

Thanks!<br><br>
That last one actually looks perfect -- it's between our house and my parents', and I'm pretty sure they will want to tag along.
