EASTON, — For many Connecticut families, the conclusion of Thanksgiving signifies the start of Christmas Tree shopping season. State Rep. Tony Scott, R-112th, visited Maple Row Farm, 555 North Park Ave., and toured the grounds with General Manager Scott Edwards ahead of the holiday rush.

The 112th District includes Monroe and a portion of Trumbull and Easton. Scott visited the farm in his district leading up to Small Business Saturday. He encourages residents to shop local over the holidays.

“I want to thank Scott for taking the time to meet with me and explain more about the tree business here in Easton,” Rep. Scott said of Edwards. “It’s a classic New England tradition to take a hayride and cut down the tree you’ve picked out with your entire family. In addition to trees, you can find wreaths, boughs, and ornaments to decorate your house or apartment.”

According to Maple Row Farm, there are over 200 acres of farmland accessible to visitors via hayrides. The farm has been family owned and operated since the 1920’s, providing a century of stewardship to the Easton community.

In addition to Maple Row Farm, Scott said there are many area farms that have quality tree selections, including Slady’s Tree Farm, Everett’s Corner Tree Farm, Sabia Tree Farm, Ganim Tree Farm and Jones Family Farm, among others.

“I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season and good luck in finding your family Christmas tree or farm-crafted decorations,” Scott said.
