We are sorry to announce that we don't have any more Christmas Trees for sale. They all left home and found a new home over the last 40 years. They all grew up!

We would like to sincerely express our thanks to all of you who came to our farm over that time to share the joy of picking out a tree and taking it home for Christmas. It meant as much to us as it did to you. The joy we all experienced would bring tears to our eyes day after day watching the children's wide eyed fun while searching for and finally finding the perfect Christmas tree.

We are actively looking for another Christmas Tree Farm we can recommend to you and we will share that with you on this page when we find it.

 

In the interim we are leaving our Christmas Tree pages up so that you can still find the care and feeding instructions just in case you can't find them anywhere else.

 

How to keep your ‘Christmas Tree’ Happy!!!!

 

  • Keep tree in a sheltered unheated area away from sun and wind.
  • Before bringing it in, make a fresh cut across the base of the stump (1/4” - 1/2" up from the original cut).
  • After making the fresh cut, make certain you have the tree in your stand and fill it with boiling water within 1.5 / 2 hours!! (If unable, make another new cut!!!) Yes, use boiling water!! The heat at its base will open the tubules allowing more efficient passage of water and your tree will be happier for it!! Keep your tree stand filled with water because a seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump within 2 hours if the water drops below the base of the tree—effectively preventing further water up take.
  • Within the first 24 hours your tree may ‘drink’ as much as four liters!!
  • Be certain it doesn’t go dry! After the initial 'boiling water treatment, simply use hot tap water each time you  refill the reservoir in your stand. (Remember, 'Christmas Trees' love just plain water!! Not distilled water! Not mineral water! Just plain water!!)

You will also want to keep your tree away from any heat source such as a fireplace, a radiator, a furnace duct outlet, or a television set—which all increase the risk of dehydration and or combustion! Check your ‘Christmas Tree Light’ cords and connections too, and make sure they are in a ‘safe’ condition! Also, unplug your tree lights before leaving the house or retiring for the night—and never overload your electrical circuits!! Simple precautions such as these will help preserve the freshness, the beauty, the fragrance, and the tradition that only a real 'Christmas Tree' can provide!!

Bring the Kids (See Video)!

Bring the kids and make it a fun filled family outing. Enjoy a ride on our hay wagon-which we pull behind a Honda quad. The kids love it and it makes for a great ‘photo op’--especially with grandpa or grandma or mom & dad in the wagon with them!! We have a big fire pit, keep a good fire burning and serve a hot drink for your comfort and pleasure (included free), while our staff shakes your tree to rid it of weeds, bird nests, loose needles, etc. Then, (also included) we pull it through our ‘Tree Baler’ to make it easy to load and bring in doors without knocking the pictures off your wall or scratching the paint!! We’ll help u load it on your vehicle too, and for a reasonable fee (depending upon where u live), we will even deliver to your residence at the close of our day!!
