Taking the Trolley
Before boarding the trolley, take a moment to browse our handmade holiday wreaths. We’ll be happy to set one aside for you while you head out in search of the perfect tree.
A short trolley ride will take you out to our Christmas tree fields, where you’ll find saws and carts for your use. After choosing your tree, our staff will place it on a trailer behind the trolley, which you will ride back through the woods.
Bringing Your Tree Home
Once back in the main area, our staff will measure and shake your tree. Then they bale it and provide twine to make it easier for you to take home. Drilling is available for those who want it.
For a snack or light lunch, stop by Calla’s Café, where you’ll find it hard to resist our homemade apple cider donuts.
Pre-Cut Christmas Trees
Not interested in taking the trolley? No problem! We have a wide selection of quality fresh pre-cut trees, as well as a field of cut-your-own trees in the main area. Ask for help from anyone with a red apron.
