Pick the perfect Christmas tree — and help support a King County farmer at the same time.

Puget Sound Fresh has encouraged revelers to buy trees from local farms. Purchasing Christmas trees and holiday greens from local farms helps agriculture to remain a part of the local economy and landscape into the future.

Find the Enchanted Winds Tree Farm and Noel Trees Limited near Issaquah. Find a list of tree farms in the Evergreen State here.

Each farm offers something to make the experience special, like hot cider or cocoa, baked goods, pony rides, gifts or a visit from the all-important North Pole guest.

King County launched Puget Sound Fresh in 1998 to help consumers identify products grown, raised or harvested in the 12 counties around Puget Sound.

In 2001, Puget Sound Fresh became a program of Cascade Harvest Coalition, a nonprofit organization formed to support sustainable food systems. Cascade Harvest Coalition operates in partnership with the county and the King Conservation District.
