Welcome to What Fir! Tree Farm. We're excited about seeing our ‘old' and ‘new' friends this year. Our farm produces some of the most beautiful and healthy 4 - 14ft Fraser Fir Christmas Trees in the region. How healthy? Well, we haven't sprayed any pesticides or herbicides here for almost 5 years! Our goal is to make your holiday season joyful and bountiful while keeping our environment whole. For more info about trees, including care instructions, click here.
If you've been here before you'll see many familiar faces this year - most of our staff has been working with us for since we opened. Yes, Bobby, Thomas, and Nathanial will be up in the tree lot. And Phyllis, Judith, Maxine, and the 2 Nancys will help you in the gift shop and with the wreaths and garland. We're all happy to help you in any way. And of course we'll take a family picture for you and give you a cup of hot apple cider.
What's new in 2014?
- Our prices haven’t changed in the last 5 years!
- We’ll have 3 fields open! 2 new fields on top will be open this year, with trees from 7 – 12.’ Because these fields are a little more remote we strongly recommend bringing a 4 or all wheel drive vehicle.
- The field behind the gift ship still has large trees which we can cut to size, and any trees from this one lot are 10% off.
- We also have an additional field of ‘natural’ trees – never been pruned – which are also between 7-12.’
- Because we are cutting in the upper field there will be no hay ride this year. The drive leading to the trees is also the one used by the hay wagon, and we don’t want to create a bottleneck of traffic going up and down.
- We've found a great source for white pine and fraser fir garland, and should have a good supply this year. We’re also adding live ornaments made from succulents, plus will have last year’s favorite, dried okra Santa Claus!
- And yes, Santa will be here for the season. Be sure to check out our bow tree in the back room – that’s where you’ll find that Jolly Ole Elf.
- Live demos of wreath making and decorating in our back room.
