The Elgin Christmas Tree Farm is a choose-and-cut farm.
"Hay rides take them out to the field and drop them off, and once they're out there, they're just free to roam about, pick the tree they want, cut it down," farm owner Marc Nash said.
Randy Burt and his family said picking the perfect tree took a little while.
"We walked pretty much from one end to the other," he said. "You try to circle back around to one you think you liked before, but then you find a different one, so eventually we all just say, 'Yeah, that's a good one.'"
The farm also has animals to visit, mazes to go through and a playscape and hay bail mountain for children to play on.
"So just a lot of stuff for families to do," Nash said. "Good quality family time while they're getting their Christmas tree."
The Elgin Christmas tree farm is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.
"It's really about families," Nash said. "Giving them an opportunity to get out and do this other stuff together and build these memories together."
