Christmas Trees

Our farm will be open the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 27 for cut your own Christmas trees.  We are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm for 3 week ends unless sold out earlier or due to bad weather.  Call if in doubt.

The Covered Bridge Farm is a family owned and operated cut your own Christmas tree farm growing trees on about 20 acres. We have been selling trees from this farm for the past 24 years. 

We grow Fir and Spruce trees for cutting.  Every tree is sheared (shaped) every summer to provide a dense and narrow tapered tree. There are at least six varieties of Balsam Fir,  three varieties of Spruce and several varieties of hybrid Fraser Fir crosses.  Our field is inter planted yearly so there are newly planted 1 ft. trees in the same field with mature trees.  There are no Fraser fir this year due to the severe winter of 2013 which winter burned this variety.  We are hoping that these trees will grow out of their injury and be ready to harvest in a few years.

This will be our first offering of full sized Meyer Spruce trees.  We used one last year and can confirm that this is one tough tree.  Its stiff branches will hold heavier ornaments and the needle retention, we feel, exceeds anything on the market. It does not have the fragrance of balsam fir, however.

The cone retention is very good so we have not de-coned some of these trees during the early growing season.  So if you are looking for a tree with cones, this is for you.

Another tree worth considering is the Korean Fir.  It has a deep green color and a tendency to twist slightly the branch to reveal the white underside of the needle resulting in a "flash" effect.  The quantity is very limited in the 7-8 ft. size.

We are a cut your own tree farm and have no wholesale or pre-cut "premium" trees.  Therefore, our tree field has the higher quality trees remaining in the field for the customer to cut.

All "Cut Your Own" trees for 2015 are one price for any size - $55.95 plus tax.  We accept cash, checks, MC/Visa/Discover. 
You may drive or walk in the field. This fall has given us a surplus of rain so the trees are well hydrated.  On the other hand, the field is wet and if we do not have freezing weather to freeze the soil, driving in the field will be limited.  We have sleds to haul the trees and if you have your favorite plastic sled, you can bring it along.

Hand  saws are available to borrow.  We provide 400# poly twine to help secure your tree on your vehicle. We will clean you tree with a Toro blower or Shakee shaker to remove any dead needles.
Tree bailing (wrapping) with #2 recyclable green and red soft plastic netting 
is available for $2.00.
Free hot apple cider, cookies, and candy canes are in the gift shop where you can come in to warm up when you pay.

We make and decorate our own wreaths and swags using Fraser Fir boughs cut from our other farm.  There are Evergreen tops, birch trunks/stems, and dogwood for your outdoor planter arrangements. 

Our gift shop has a good selection of ornaments, seasonal decorations, and food items, including Waletzko maple syrup and Twin Pine Farm flavored honey. 
We have the Arctic Ice Lantern molds.  These reusable molds let you freeze water into decorative luminaries to brighten your holiday displays.  For more information, visit the manufacturer's web site by clicking here.

And using LED lights and a few extra boughs from your tree, you can really create some cool looking ice lanterns.  We made this one 11/18/14.

We also sell the popular Santa's Magic Water Spout.  It is a device to make watering your tree in the stand easier.
We also have for sale the Firebuggz - a family fun way to roast marshmallows or hot dogs. It is like using a jig fishing pole over a camp fire.

Part of our sustainability farming practices include chipping evergreen boughs to use as an "acid" mulch for our blueberry field.
