Getting Ready to Open

We are excited to have you come visit the farm this year!  In preparation, we chose a tree for the gift shop.  The following pictures show the process we went through to chose our tree.  It is similar to what your experience will be!

Grab a saw and sled and pull it into the field…

Chose the tree for you.  We chose a Scotch Pine that was about 11 feet tall…

Cut the tree…

Place the tree on the sled to pull it up to be measured…

After the tree is measured and tagged, it is shaken to remove any loose needles and branches.  If you have a tree stand which works with a drilled hole, we prepare the tree with the drilled hole in the trunk…

Next the tree would be wrapped in netting and brought to your vehicle to travel home.  For our tree, we carried it into the shop and set it into our Answer Stand…

The video did not transfer well, so it is not posted.  This was a very heavy tree, however, our staff was able to set this tree into the Answer Stand in less than one minute!

Our tree will be decorated with lights and hand crafted ornaments which will be for sale in preparation for opening day on the 23rd!
