Saws are provided to help your family harvest the perfect tree.
Stay warm in your own car. At our tree farm you can drive out to your desired field on our 3000 feet of all-weather roads.
For your convenience our trained professionals, with over 40 years of experience, will shake, bale, and secure your tree to any vehicle. Some of our trees have to travel as far as Washington DC; securing the tree shouldnt be in the hands of the unskilled/untrained.
Also be sure to stop in, relax, grab a few cookies and some of Grandma's world famous hot cocoa.
On the way to the petting zoo to feed the animals stop by the life size nativity display to show the kids what Christmas is all about. They also make for great photo opportunities.
Grandpa Dirr hates standing in long lines and doesn't expect his customers to do so. You can be in and out of here in less than 15 min if you choose to do so. Getting a Christmas tree shouldn't be a stressful occasion.
Snap a family picture on our full size Santa sleigh; designed and built right here on the farm.
Take a free ride around the farm in a one horse open carriage and show kids and grandkids how travel used to be.
We offer all of these services free of charge as a gift from our family to yours!
2018 Cut-your-own trees are a flat price, the size does not matter.

*The Senator's Choice*
The Eastern White Pine makes an ideal Christmas Tree because they hold their needles well, even long after being harvested. They are also well suited for people with allergies. The White Pine is fun to decorate at Christmas with their soft, flowing green needles and are native to the northeast.
The White Pine is available as:
"Cut-Your-Own" - Up to 15 ft.
Live "Ball & Burlap" - Up to 8 ft.
A traditional favorite. At some point, most of us have had a Scotch Pine in our home as our Christmas tree of choice. With a sturdy frame and full branches, this tree is great even when completely covered with ornaments and lights.
The Scotch Pine has 2 to 3 inch long stiff needles with 2 needles to a cluster. It holds needles better than most trees. The strong branches are ideal for hanging heavy ornaments. It has only a slight fragrance.
Not native to North America, the Scotch Pine is an import from Europe. It has been grown and used as a Christmas tree in the U.S. since the 1940's.
The Scotch Pine is available as:
"Cut-Your-Own" - Up to 7 ft.
Did You Know*
The Norway Spruce, native to The Black Forest in Germany is a popular Christmas tree due to it's color, the branch strength, and symmetrical shape. Legend has it that Martin Luther, in Germany, was inspired by this tree to decorate it and use its evergreen qualities as a symbol for Christmas. It is believed to be the first actual Christmas tree.
The Norway Spruce has short needles, which are less than one inch in length. These needles are stiff and pointed and sharp to the touch. The color is a glossy dark green. Many people select spruce for the strength of its branches, as they comfortably support heavy ornaments.
The Norway Spruce is available as:
Live "Ball & Burlap" - 5 to 7 ft.
