  • None of our trees are sprayed!
  • We have both open pastures and tree fields for your family to explore.
  • We accept VISA & MasterCard.Separate CASH line.
  • Free hot chocolate.
  • Free wagon rides on weekends (weather permitting)

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 NATURAL non-sprayed U-cut CHRISTMAS TREES Friday after Thanksgiving through Early December, and 35 varieties of heirloom PUMPKINS on the vines for October weekends.

2020  Update:

 

COPING WITH COVID during Pumpkin Harvest Festival, October 2020 weekends, 9-5. This is a family event, and as always, safety is a concern. Please note: Masks are required in structures, the animal barn, and on hay rides. Masks are also required outside where ever Social Distancing can not be maintained – Please respect Social Distancing in fields and use good judgement.

Thank you for understanding these measures are for everyone’s safety and are necessary for this event to take place.

You are invited to join us again in 2020 and share the Magic of Christmas that radiates across our 100 acre u-cut natural tree farm. We strive to create a simple happy Country Christmas visit for you and your loved ones.

 As trees grow and are cut, our focus changes every year.

Reminder: For your own safety and our peace of mind, please try to not enter any tree fields after 3:30 PM. It is too easy to fall over little tree stumps in low light, or misplace part of your family! Dress warm!

In 2020 We Will Have Several Wonderful Varieties Of Natural Non-sheared Christmas Trees. They Stand Proudly In The Fields Growing as fast as they can to Bring The Magic Of Christmas Into Your Home’s next year!

  • Norway Spruce
  • Douglas Fir
  • Noble Fir

We grow beautiful natural non-sheared trees – NO SPRAY!  We strive to be as environmentally conscious as possible.

Our historic farm has been featured in Sunset Magazine, KOIN6 TV, Clackamas County’s Summeryule tours, even a Norm Thompson commercial, and our trees star in thousands of town squares and living rooms across the region.

We will help you decide which tree best serves your need. Be sure to start your adventure at our warming shed. There you will learn how to identify the differences between the trees and get headed in the right direction.

Everyone has been busy getting ready for your visit!

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 with hot cocoa. Giant Gingerbread Cookies are available to purchase! Your hosts, Reg and Cher Tollefson, are smiling at the thought of all our wonderful visitors arriving soon . . .
