2010 Tree Cutting

To our wonderful customers,

Evergreen Farms has had amazing support this year. All the awesome customers that have come out and shown support as we deal with the results of a two-year drought has been heart-warming for the Walterscheidt family.

We have a nice selection of Fraser Firs at the farm this year. But because of the large volume of customers and the recent drought, we are no longer cutting any trees from the field at Evergreen Farms for the 2010 season. We want to make sure our trees grow nice and tall for you to cut down next year.

HOWEVER, you can still take the wagon ride out to the "yard" to find the perfect tree, which has been watered since arriving from North Carolina and Washington state. They are set up in stands so you can stroll through the row of trees and pick which one you'd like to take home.

After picking your tree, you can then enjoy the campfire and roast a marshmallow or two, while drinking a cup of hot chocolate and enjoying an Elgin sausage wrap from the concession stand. Paint a pine cone to hang on your new tree, get lost in the maze, play a game of teatherball and don't forget to feed the goats.

We regret that this has come to past and know our valued customers understand our situation. As farmers, we sometimes can't control what Mother Nature throws at us. Luckily, we still are able to provide a place for you to make wonderful family memories while you pick our your tree.

We hope to see you out at the farm for a fun farm family experience.

All the best,
Mike & Beth Walterscheidt
