ARE YOU OPEN FOR TAGGING FALL 2017?
Unfortunately, no. Due to high demand for trees and staffing limitations we have not had tagging since 2013. To keep things fair we will need to take down any decorations found on trees around the farm for the upcoming season.
HOW MUCH ARE YOUR TREES?
All of our trees are $65. We take checks or cash.
WHEN WILL YOU OPEN?
A: We open our cut-your-own tree season on Friday, November 24th 2017 and will be open from 9am to 4pm Thursday-Sunday thereafter.
WHAT'S YOUR SELECTION OF TREES LIKE THIS YEAR? WHERE SHOULD I GO FOR THE BEST TREE?
We have GREAT trees this year! Many beautiful 5-8 foot concolor, balsam and spruce trees all around the farm. We have a good selection all over the farm so you can go to either side of the farm on route 88, and you won't see the "best trees" signs on the road.
DO YOU HAVE 10+ FOOT TREES?
Yes! We do. Finding these trees takes a bit more time to walk around the whole farm, so we suggest you plan on spending a few hours at the farm if you're looking for a big tree.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TREE?
Since your tree is fresh cut it will last a long time. But, like a large bouquet of flowers it needs plenty of water daily as well as one package of tree preservative which we will give you. The preservative is a gell-like substance that keeps the tree moist between waterings- just be sure to keep it out of reach of kids and pets.
WHAT TYPE OF TREE LASTS THE LONGEST?
Many people keep their tree up for over a month. Very warm homes, wood stoves or direct heat will shorten the life of your tree. Fir trees are shown to be better in those circumstances but spruce trees last a medium-long time with proper care since it is fresh cut.
WHAT TYPE OF TREE SMELLS THE BEST?
Smell is a personal preference. Different tree varieties have different smells, so crumple a few needles and take a whiff. The smell comes from the pitch which is most abundant under the water in the stand. To get your tree to smell more, take a pair of scissors and cut 1" pieces off the inner branches.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU SELL?
We have 24" & 36" mixed greens decorated wreaths, 12" exotic wreaths with mixed greens and fresh ornamental plant materials. These wreaths come with a variety of bows, all others have red velvet bows, but any can be switched out if you ask an employee. We also have kissing balls as well as mixed greens mailbox covers.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
The kids, the dog, rope for tying down your tree (we provide baling twine for normal size trees), and a camera. We provide saws (no power saws please), sleds or the haywagon for tree retrieval, netting for normal size trees.
