Edgar’s Feed & Seed
Edgar’s Feed and Seed has been selling Christmas trees for nearly 50 years, so when Elliott Miller built a big new retail store five years ago, expanding its Christmas offerings seemed like a natural progression. Generations of families have made picking out their tree at Edgar’s part of their tradition and now they can get the whole house ready and pick up some local treats for their holiday table.
When the pandemic hit, Miller was looking for a safe way for kids and families to still enjoy a visit with Santa. They added an Amish-built insulated cabin for Santa and each year they have been adding more detail and more props. The photos with Santa happen over two Saturdays (this year the dates will be Nov. 26 and Dec. 3) and over 150 families and more than 300 children attend, so be sure to book your time slot early. There is no cost to participate, but donations to the local food bank are gratefully accepted, and your photo will be e-mailed to you.
The Christmas trees are available from about the third week in November until Christmas (or until supplies run out). Edgar’s has alway complemented the trees with garland and wreaths, but in recent years they have focused on even more Christmas decor, and their product line is constantly evolving with local artisans and vendors. Christmas gift baskets that feature local meat, cheeses and other products have become extremely popular.
Edgar’s Feed and Seed is a traditional feed and farm supply that has grown to include a lot more retail for consumers and they are proud to feature local products, like maple syrup and honey. This is a stop that is sure to surprise and delight you, especially in its full holiday splendor.
