December 5, 2013: We have an excellent array of non-profit groups conducting bake sales on our busiest days. These services are scheduled to provide funding for worthy causes and to give you an opportunity to have hot food and baked treats before, during and/or after you have picked out your perfect Christmas tree. Here's the line-up of what you can expect:
- December 7: The East Brookfield Congregational Church will have hot corn chowder and chili in addition to an array of baked goodies.
- December 8: The Randolph Union High School Junior Class will have hot chili and some hot soup plus a tasty collection of baked goods.
- December 14: The United Federated Church Youth Group of Williamstown will have hot cheddar cheese chowder and delicious meat balls to complement their collection of baked goods.
- December 15: The Randolph Union High School Junior Class will have some hot soups and perhaps hot macaroni and cheese (stay tuned) plus an appetizing collection of baked goods
December 4, 2013: Consider combining your trip to our farm for a Christmas tree with a stop at the Floating Bridge Food and Farm Co-Op Holiday Market in beautiful Pond Village (Also see the still floating, Floating Bridge). Ask us for directions. See our events calendar for dates and hours.
November 25, 2013: This year some customers will have to walk further than in the past if they want to look at and compare all of our trees. We have an adequate supply of trees but they are scattered in many different parts of the farm. We will be happy to direct you to the likely places that you may find your perfect tree. Please dress warmly and have proper shoes or boots. Remember that our farm is often colder and has more snow than in the lower elevations.
November 24, 2013: We have completed our bough harvest for 2013. We do have a few 50 pound bundles of Fraser Fir available at $14.00 each. Please contact us ASAP by phone or email if you would like some or all of them. First come, first served.
November 14, 2013: The five sisters (shown above) are five large trees available for adoption. See our large tree prices. These five trees were too beautiful to chip and are available for sale. If you have a large room with a cathedral ceiling, a patio, a front yard or other good spot for a large tree, please contact us in advance. These trees will need some tender loving care from our crew and your truck and/or trailer. You should view them ahead of when you would like them if at all possible.
November 13, 2013: We are nearly done cutting boughs. Hopefully just one more weekend. Brandon Emerson is tying a Colorado Blue Spruce bundle and making sure it is a compact bundle.
November 11, 2013: Veteran’s Day at the tree farm was accompanied by snow that has accumulated on the ground making work on boughs wet and slippery.
November 4, 2013: As of this weekend we have cut about half of the brush that has been ordered. We may be able to accept a few new orders for brush to be picked up before Thanksgiving.
October 30, 2013: We are sold out of wholesale trees except for the large trees. For what we have available, check our Wholesale Prices page.
October 30, 2013: Dates for a charity to conduct a Bake Sale at our Choose & Cut operation are filling up. Please contact us soon if you would like your group to conduct a bake sale this season.
October 29, 2013: We are now only taking orders for boughs that will not be picked up until the week of November 18, 2013. We have had a record number of inquiries already. We are cutting boughs now for customers who have sent a firm order accompanied by a deposit.
October 26, 2013: We started cutting boughs today after a few light to moderate frosts. Since then we have had two severe frosts. As you may know, the needles adhere to the twig better if cut after a few frosts.
August 26, 2013: We had some late frosts in May and a lot of rain this summer but the trees are doing well.
