Visiting our Christmas Tree Farm

As you enter the farm, you will follow the signs directing you to the off-road parking area right next to the heart of the operation. We hope this makes it easy for you to pick your Christmas tree, and enjoy this family experience.

You will then proceed to the Greeting Hut area where you will be greeted by a friendly face and given a map and a price list. On exhibit there will be examples of the various trees available with descriptions so that you can choose what you like.  After you have parked, be sure to stop at the Welcome Booth for any help you might need!

Continuing on your way to board a trolley, take a moment to view the lovely display of hand-made wreaths available to you. Feel free to ask someone to set one aside for you before you head out in search of that perfect tree!

A short trolley ride will take you out to the fields of trees where you will find saws and carts for your use. After choosing a tree, it will be placed on a trailer in the back of the trolley which you will ride back through the woods to the main area. There our staff will measure and shake your tree. They will then bale it to make it easier for you to take it home. Drilling is available for those who want it.

For those not wishing to take a trolley ride out back, there will be a wide selection of quality fresh pre-cut trees, as well as the field of trees in the main area. Ask for help from anyone with a red apron. While in the main area, you may also choose to enjoy a tasty snack/light lunch in Calla’s Cafe. You’ll find the homemade apple cider donuts impossible to resist and might even want to take some home!!!!

As your trip to the farm nears its end, each family member is invited to enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate with the purchase of a tree or wreath and be entertained by our NEW CHICKEN CAROLERS!

Come make us part of your family traditions!!
