Real trees for real people
Do you take debit/credit cards?
Yes, we now take debit/credit, cash and checks also accepted-no American Express, please.
Should I add vodka/bleach/sugar/ginger ale to the tree water?
While adding sugar to the water might not damage the tree, it won't make a difference. However, other substances may damage a tree and cause the needles to fall off prematurely. We recommend just using plain old water.
Does my tree need a fresh cut?
Yes. If it has been 2 or more hours, you should cut at least 1/4 inch off the bottom before you put it in water.
How do I know if my tree will fit in my stand?
We recommend measuring the opening of your stand before arriving, and bring a tape measure with you to measure the base of your desired Christmas tree.
Can any size tree be baled?
We can bale most of our trees. However, extremely tall, full trees will not fit through our balers. If you plan on getting a very large tree, be prepared for this by bringing a trailer or a pickup truck.
How often do I water my tree?
Your Christmas tree is going to drink a lot of water in the first week. We suggest adding water morning and night, but if you have pets, you may need to add more as they might drink it, too. Make sure the water level never falls below the butt of the tree, or it will reseal itself.
Can we come get a tree in the middle of the night?
We don't have outside lighting at our farm, so once the sun goes down it gets very dark. Our hours are Mon-Fri 10am-dark, and Sat-Sun 9am-dark.
Do we bring our own saw?
Only if you want a sharp one. Just kidding! We supply saws and twine for you to tie the tree down. Please no chainsaws, ask an employee if you need assistance.
Can I bring my dog?
All family members are welcome. Please keep your pets leashed and clean up after them. If your dog marks a Christmas tree, then it's yours to purchase :). Please keep pets away from the livestock.
Can we pet the farm animals?
You are welcome to view the animals, but please don't pet them.
Can we walk around the farm?
We have designated trails around the farm that you are welcome to enjoy. Look for the signs!
When does your farm open?
We open the day after Thanksgiving at 9am. If you would like to get your tree before Thanksgiving, please call 503-647-5288 or 503-329-7512 for an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate.
