Make your visit to the Christmas Farm an annual event with family and friends like the group below with their bus. Make a day of it, if you like, tailgating, walking among the beautiful trees and riding the free horse-drawn wagon.The area around the farm sign near the entrance off Highway M is decorated to create a place where you can take group photos. We have a porta-potty on site for your convenience. We are a pet friendly farm so bring your favorite animal to help pick out that perfect tree!
The Christmas season is filled with traditions. One of the most cherished of these traditions is finding and decorating the family Christmas tree. The Christmas Farm can make this a special occasion for your whole family. The Miller family invites you and your family to choose and cut your own Real Christmas Tree from our tree farm.
Last year we closed early, after the second weekend, because we were concerned that by continuing tree sales we would create a shortage of trees available for this year. We apologize for any inconvenience we caused. At the time we didn’t know that the spring and summer of 2017 would be the third year in a row of excellent growing conditions for Christmas trees. All seven varieties of trees we grow and sell put out extraordinary growth, with good needle color and no disease or insect problems. The bottom line is that we have never had so many quality trees available as we approach the opening of a selling season. This year, including all varieties, we will have over 3500 trees six feet and up in height and # 1 quality to sell when we open.
We’re also pleased to inform you that we will be opening a new field of Fraser Firs for sale this year. We will open with over 600 # 1 quality Frasers between six and nine feet in height in this block. Although we have graveled the road to this new field up and over a small hill, heavy rain or snow might require a bit of a walk for those without the proper vehicle.
The only reason we would curtail tree sales this year would be extreme weather conditions. If you have any doubts about our being open or any other questions, call the farm at 608-857-3593.
In addition to Christmas trees, we offer our own handmade and decorated Balsam and Fraser wreaths in various sizes and designs, and Balsam garland by the foot. We also sell tree stands, stand trays, tree removal bags and wreath door hangers. Loose evergreen boughs for decorating are available free. In addition, get free coloring books for the kids with pictures and stories about Christmas trees.
The Christmas Farm has over thirty acres of Christmas tree fields spread over a considerable area, but all our trees are easily accessible from adjacent field roads, with ample parking and no slippery slopes to climb. Our staff of friendly “elves” will shake and clean your tree and wrap it in biodegradable netting at no extra charge. Saws and twine are furnished and we offer assistance to those who might find it difficult to cut down a tree.
Again this year, we invite you to help us support an area foodbank by bringing non-perishable food items and/or cash donations. Help make this a merry Christmas for everyone, especially those in need. Both our sales building staff and wagon team will be collecting for this cause, a true expression of the Christmas spirit!
HOPE TO SEE YOU AT
