Nearly 400 trees and more than 200 wreaths arrived at Wilton’s Ambler Farm on Tuesday, Dec. 2, as volunteers began gearing up for the annual Greens Sale, a beloved holiday tradition. On Tuesday, volunteers helped unload and set up trees and wreaths for the sale, which will begin this weekend.
Families will be able to pick out trees, wreaths and roping during the Greens Sale, which will be held on the first two weekends of December. Up to 100 volunteers will help visitors choose from Fraser or Balsam trees, several sizes of wreaths – including 24-inch decorated wreaths – and pine roping. Gift items, including Ambler Farm’s popular maple syrup and merchandise (jackets, blankets and thermal tumblers), will also be available for sale.
Santa will be on hand for visits with children. Visitors can warm up with hot cider, cocoa and other treats as they pick out their holiday greenery.
Proceeds from the sale of the holiday greens support the Farm’s ongoing programs, including education, agriculture and the restoration of the historic Raymond-Ambler Farmhouse.
Emily Humiston and Kerrie Scofield are the Greens Sale co-chairs.
The sale runs 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6 and 13, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 7 and 14. Ambler Farm is located at 257 Hurlbutt St..
