I discovered this last weekend, because they had a hay ride available according to the advertisement that i saw. Well, Not only did they have the hay ride, they also served hot cocoa and appe cider, which was great considering the cold weather that day.
I also found out that they sometimes offer sleigh rides and other winter festivies around Christmas. I have never been on a sleigh ride, so that sounds like something i can do in the future! There is something here to do for people of all ages!!

Like Edwards Apple Orchard, this too is a great family tradition. Go out and ride the wagons, pet the golden retrievers, and cut your own tree. Then have some hot cider and relax by the fire. The service here is unbeatable! However, the crowds are intense on weekends. I highly recommend taking a day off work and school and making it a family day (lots of chicago folks drive in here, just for the experience!). YOu'll get really personalized attention during slow times, such as help loading your tree.

PROS: GREAT SERVICE
CONS:

Message from Williams Tree Farm

History: Williams Tree Farm has been family owned and operated for over 60 years. The farm was purchased in the 1940s by Carlton and Amelia Williams and their son Wayne. Originally a dairy and hog farm, timbers were harvested from the farm and sawn for what was known as The Wagon Wheel, a historic resort located in Rockton,IL. To replace those trees and for good stewardship of the land, the trees that we harvested where replaced with seedlings. When a winter storm occurred and Christmas trees where in short supply, some of those seedlings were harvested to meet that demand. Thus a new business was born. Christmas tree production was the focus for decades, with the farm shipping trees to local areas as well as sites in the suburbs of Chicago, but as the families began to look for experience based purchases, Williams Tree Farm led the industry in becoming a choose and cut farm. Now more then ever, making memories is what we are all about.
