Tips:

  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO - many farms and lots are selling out of trees early this year - Call to confirm their supply, their hours and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.  All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here !

    Comments from a visitor on November 15, 2010: "The thing I really like about it is that it is very beautiful in that it looks like what it is: a really nice well kept 4th generation family Tree farm. Deer and all kinds of animals can be found at various times around the farm, and in the center of the farm there are these 100 foot tall White Pines that sway back in forth in the wind. I also like the paths that one can walk around the farm and the people working there are really good. I always found them helpful and kind. They offer cut-your-own and some pre-cut Christmas trees. There is cider and a gift shop with a warm wood burning stove. It is really nice and warm in the winter when you are buying a Christmas tree. There are carts for bringing the trees back, and very sharp saws. They have a bunch of trees that will be ready in the next few years, but there is still a good selection to choose from. Best get there sooner than later. "
