2017 – This Year OUR TREE FIELDS ARE ONLY OPEN WEEKENDS THRU DECEMBER 10, 2017

Featured

2017 Update: OPEN for cutting tall trees!  We have a limited supply of u-cut trees. Plus freshly cut Nordmann Fir and natural Grand Fir are by the tree shed while they last.

2017:   This Year OUR TREE FIELDS ARE ONLY OPEN WEEKENDS THRU DECEMBER 10, 2017. 

2017 UPDATE: Our U-Cut Tree Fields are open December 3rd, December 9 & 10. For your own safety please DO NOT enter our field after 3:30 pm. We close at 4:00 pm. As the light fades it is difficult to see uneven ground, the tree stumps, and where your family is. Thank you.

This is our 26th season and unfortunately it is necessary to allow our tree fields time to regenerate, and that determines which tree fields we can harvest from now. As of today 11/25/2017 we have opened our Douglas Fir Fields! There are many great Dougs waiting for you. They are 5 to 6 feet tall for $30.00 each, all non-sprayed, and both sheared and un-sheared.

With that said, if you are looking for a wonderful LARGE CHRISTMAS TREE such as an unsheared natural NOBLE FIR  9+ to 20 feet high, we have a bountiful selection in the u-cut fields. They are only $10.00 per foot.

Otherwise we have many young trees that simply need a few more cycles of rest and growth. Tree 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 that limiting our harvests is necessary and that it was not an easy decision. It will also make it easy for our customers to find parking and get checked out!

Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season.

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 November 25, 2017. Here’s the latest report:

There is still a beautiful selection of tall, un-sheared, non-sprayed wild and majestic Noble Fir trees which stand over 9 to 20 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!

2017  FAQ’s:

  • We are USUALLY open weekends from Thanksgiving through December 3rd, 9 to 4, or by APPOINTMENT.

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.

Brian’s Metalwork and Blacksmith gifts are so popular Brian has expanded his product line. Stop by the Warming Shed and take a look.

December 6, 2016 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 2016 report:
*There is still a beautiful selection of tall, un-sheared, wild and majestic Noble & Grand Fir trees which stand over 6 feet tall in the fields (over 8′ are the most plentiful).
*However, our sheared cultured Noble fields are nearly depleted for 2016. *But Oregonian’s favorite tree is our state tree and we have a gorgeous plentiful selection of Douglas Fir under 6 feet tall.

Reminder: Please try to not enter the tree fields after 3:30 PM. It is too easy to fall over little tree stumps when it’s dark around 4PM. Dress warm!

If you only require a small 3′ or 4′ tree then our fields can’t accommodate you very well this year. Growing trees means our fields change Every Year – it’s a tricky business but we love it!

The horses are excited to have their stalls decked out. The little fox at the edge of the farm shyly agreed to wear a Santa hat. The U-Cut Shed has the fire stoked to warm guests, hot cocoa and giant Gingerbread Cookies! Your hosts, Reg and Cher Tollefson, are smiling at the playfulness of the miniature donkey and pony . . .
