2016 FAQ’s: Our trees grow for an average of 7 years to 11 years of age before they are cut and become part of the Christmas Magic in your homes. This fact is why pricing is variable. (It is possible some years growers can have an over-abundance, or even a lack of a variety based on a variety’s shortage of planting stock 5 to 10 years ago! Growing trees can be a tricky business!) None of our trees are sprayed – and we accept VISA & MasterCard. Free hot chocolate. Free wagon rides on weekends (weather permitting).
Our historic farm is full of pasture and tree forests. Acres of trees means you will find your perfect one! And don’t forget that you do not have to cut your own tree. Beautiful individually priced freshly cut trees grace the grounds around the new Warming Shed!
