I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any, please email me ! And beware the copycat websites - from Monny-bloggers to out-and-out plagiarists, they simply copy my work; they are just out to make a quick buck. Since 2004, I am make updates and corrections every day! (let me know if you see copycats!)

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 !
    DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM (by phone, email or find current information on their website or Facebook page!
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Northern suburbs of Columbus, Ohio that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!

    Comments from a visitor on July 12, 2010: "They have blue spruce and evergreen, I think. This is my brother and sister in law. They do a wonderful job of caring for their trees. They are quite popular in the area and sell out quickly. You can choose your tree or they will choose one for you if you wish. They donate trees to the parish, the school, the museum, pretty much like to donate to those who has a hard time affording a tree. This couple has worked their own tree farm for about 18 years. The family has grown up working the trees. They do all their own trimming of the trees and will cut your tree for you. You can go out at the beginning of their season and tag a tree for them to cut closer to Christmas."
