Freshly Cut: FFA Christmas Tree Lot Grand Opening

Christmas is right around the corner, and luckily there’s still time to purchase a fresh cut Christmas tree without leaving the valley. The Kern Valley FFA Christmas Tree Lot, located this year at the KVHS Ag. farm, has several trees left for sale. Sales have been steady since the grand opening on November 28, but a great selection of Noble, Grand and Douglas Firs are still available. This is one of the most important fundraisers for the Kern Valley FFA Chapter. Proceeds help fund activities such as travel for chapter members to FFA competitions, scholarships and the chuck wagon at the Kern County Fair. The lot is open Monday-Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
