2017 – OUR TREE FIELDS WILL NOT BE OPEN THIS YEAR
2017 UPDATE: OUR TREE FIELDS ARE NOT GOING TO BE OPEN DURING THE 2017 SEASON.
This is our 26th season and unfortunately it is necessary to allow our tree fields time to regenerate and not open our fields for a year or two. We have many young trees that simply need a few more cycles of rest and growth. Seedling shortages and weather patterns the last few years are contributing factors.
The best thing about being a Christmas Tree Farm is looking forward to having all of our beautiful loyal families arriving and letting us be part of their personal traditions. Our hearts are heavy knowing we won’t see all of our old and new friends – we appreciate all of you and are grateful for your support over the years. Please understand this is necessary and that it was not an easy decision.
With that said, if you are looking for a LARGE CHRISTMAS TREE such as a NOBLE or GRAND Fir over 10 feet high, please call us direct. These extra large beauties are the only trees available for cutting at our Historic Kirchem Farm this year and will be by appointment only .
Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season. We will miss all of you very much.

UCut Natural Christmas Trees – the MAGIC starts at Historic Kirchem Farm
2017 UPDATE-As trees grow and are cut our focus changes almost every year. At the moment we are specializing in TALL trees. We did a review of the tree fields today. Here’s the latest 2017 report:
- 2017 SOLD OUT!!! There is still a beautiful selection of tall, un-sheared, wild and majestic Noble & Grand Fir trees which stand over 10 feet tall in the fields.
*However, our sheared cultured Noble fields are depleted for 2017.
Reminder: Our river fields are closed and locked in 2017. Please do not enter any tree fields after 3:30 PM. It is too easy to fall over little tree stumps when it’s dark around 4PM.
If you only require a small 3′ or 4′ tree then our fields simply can not accommodate you this year (2017). Growing trees means our fields change Every Year – it’s a tricky business but we love it!
We have 100 acres and plenty of room to roam. When you ask for our NATURAL noble & grand fir, both unsheared and unsprayed, just like in the forest, we will direct you to those beautiful areas! If your family wishes to enjoy a walk in the woods along the river bench then this would be a great family adventure for you! (We do ask that you check-in for directions and driving conditions at the Warming Shed before heading out to these natural areas. Our recent wet weather patterns may not allow safe driving along some areas.)
2017 is SOLD OUT – 2016 FAQ’s:

The interior of the new Warming Shed!!!
We are still where the Historic Kirchem Farm has been since the mid-1800’s. We still have stunning outdoor venues for weddings and reunions, and of course our no-spray U-cut Christmas trees.
