Christmas Tree Season

We're so excited that the Christmas tree season has started. Our first two days have been wonderful and we've had hundreds of happy families visit the farm.
We can't wait to have you come out to the farm to pick your own Christmas tree too. We've heard a few questions over and over and thought we'd address them here:
1. You can bring your dog as long as they're on a leash.
3. We provide everything you need to cut down your tree - from a saw to a stick to measure your tree to twine to tie it to your vehicle.
4. Complimentary marshmallow roasting, pine cone painting, apple cider and coffee is ONLY on the weekends.
5. We are open every day until Christmas eve. Weekends from 9 until dark and Weekdays from noon until dark.
6. Oh, and dark is around 5:30 p.m. so make sure you get here before 6 p.m. so you have enough time to pick out your tree in the field.
If you have any other questions - don't hesitate to call us at 281-4833.
Can't wait to see you out here!

Trees for Troops

Happy Veterans Day to all veterans that have or are currently serving our country. In honor of Veterans Day today, we'd like to make sure you know about our Trees for Troops program. Trees for Troops is a national program organized by the nonprofit ChristmasSPIRITFoundation that provides real Christmas trees to troops around the USA and overseas.

While our farm will not be providing trees this year, we will be collecting money to help pay for the program. Every penny you donate goes directly to the program. There are two ways you can donate while you're at our farm:

1. You can find a donation jar in the gift shop when you check out.
2. You can donate $1 to color a Christmas tree and write a message out to the troops, which will be delivered to the troops. We will have more information about this soon.

Make sure to follow @Trees4Troops on Twitter for updated information on the Trees for Troops program throughout the season.
