Before you visit!!

Measure the height of your ceiling. Bring a tape measure with you to measure the field tree. Trees tend to look smaller in the field than in your home, especially when you bring it home and put it in a good tree stand. Harvesting a Christmas tree can be hard work. Bring helpers to help carry or pull your tree on a tarp to our baler. We can help too. Wear appropriate foot wear. This is a real working farm. You will encounter an all natural terrain. Boots with good firm treads are recommended. If it has snowed, be prepared with snow boots. Dress in layers and especially wear warm socks on cold days. Strollers should not be in the fields, please plan accordingly. Bring a tarp. Once you find the tree your family loves, the tarp will help you carry/pull it back to a baling station. It's also perfect for covering the trunk of your car or the roof when you tie it on to bring it home.

 

Do I need to bring something to secure my tree?              

Do you provide netting?

We can supply string for you to secure your tree. If driving on the highway, we recommend you bring rope for a secure ride home. We can secure the tree to your vehicle, but our farm and personnel assume no responsibility! We supply netting (netting or string) to wrap your tree. We have invested in a machine that wraps your tree with string when available. This feature helps with reducing plastic waste, it wraps the tree tighter for transporting and easier to go through doorways.

What is the cost for your field trees?

Our field trees varies in price.  $78.00 (plus tax) for the average trees up to 7 ft. Pricing over 7 ft & under 9 ft are $98.00 (plus tax), over 9 ft can be determined prior to cutting, pricing is based on the height and shape of the tree. Why have tree prices risen? Labor cost (planting, shaping, fertilizing, watering) has risen, fertilizer has increased over 40%, and fuel have all risen in the past few years.

Can I tag a field tree and pick up later? Please read.

Yes. Please understand, we have no control of missing tags, tags taken off trees, trees cut and missing when you come back, or damage to a tree beyond our control. At this time, only customers who have been on our email list will be able to tag trees. We currently have a waiting list for tagging, please email us for further information. For your safety, our fields close at dusk. Currently, we have a waiting list for our field trees.

Due to the drought conditions from 2019 to 2022 our trees suffered. The summer of 2023 was to wet. We have lost hundreds of trees of all sizes. The surviving trees have grown slowly. We have been planting 100-200 trees per year and hope to be able to offer more trees in the next few years. We hope you understand.
