2022 Reservations

Advanced reservations required again this year for both Pre-Cut and Cut-Your-Own trees.  The signup links are below (starting Oct. 8th).

The reservations allow you to choose a time convenient for you and less busy at the farm (better parking, shorter lines, fewer crowds, shorter checkout, faster tie-on, etc).  It also helps us balance our staffing limitations, parking constraints, tree quantities, customer safety, and respect for our neighbors.  We will be checking for reservations when customers enter the farm.

Tree Availability

Here is the 2022 harvest breakdown.  We update this daily so you know what’s still available before arriving.  Frasers are limited (lots more in 2023).  We still have tall Frasers (up to 11′ but unsheared/natural style).  With an 8-10 year growth cycle (32-40+ seasons of variability!) there are many factors that impact yearly harvests.

Washington County Parks Fundraiser

The Lake Water Clothing company, a local business, is selling Lake Elmo and Stillwater ornaments.  All proceeds go exclusively to the Living Forest Program at Washington County Parks for planting trees throughout the parks.  Please consider adding some beauty to your Christmas tree and the parks!


Photo Shoots At The Farm

During the non-selling season (Jan 1-Nov 15) we offer the farm as a backdrop for family photo sessions.  It’s a great way to capture fall photos and explore the farm and fields!  More information here
