Our Family Farm
The Evergreen Farm is owned and operated by the Thorne family. 2019 marks the 16th year that we’ve been at it, making the experience of choosing your Christmas tree a memorable part of your holiday traditions. We strive to deliver a very special holiday experience for you and your family, complete with cookies, cider, music and fun! Call or stop by our farm starting November 2nd.
Let us make the tradition easy for you! We'll cut the tree for you, carry it down the hill, trim branches off as you like, bale the tree, drill a hole in the base if you'd like, and then tie it onto your car! While our youth take care of the tree for you, you can enjoy hot cider — made from our own apples — and munch on freshly baked cookies. Warm up by the fire while you wait for your tree to be tied onto your car.
Which Christmas tree variety is right for you? We have many to choose from. Most of our trees are 6-10 foot in height, and priced at $10 per foot. The price includes all of the extras as well: cutting the tree, baling it, drilling a hole in the bottom, and tying it on your car. Please visit or call us early in the season to reserve a tall tree.

Tree Care FAQ
There are several key steps to ensure that your tree stays fresh and attractive. After purchasing the tree of your choice, we will bale it in loose netting. This open-weave sleeve will make it easier for you to get your tree home, and to protect it on the way. We also have twine, and our assistants will help you secure the tree onto or into your car.
When you get home, you should immediately put the tree base into fresh water. If you don't do this within 4 hours, then cut an additional inch off the stump of your tree before placing the tree in fresh water. A fresh cut will help the tree absorb water and stay fresh, and is necessary if a tree's sap has sealed over the cut. You can put the tree inside immediately for decorating, or you can leave the tree in any cool, shady place sheltered from winds or heat. Either way, we recommend keeping the netting on your tree until it is in your stand in your home.
Fresh trees tend to be very thirsty, so be sure to water it daily. A tree in a warm room can absorb as much as four pints of water a day, which is lost by evapotranspiration through the needles. You should check your tree daily, and add water as needed to make sure that the base of the tree is always covered with water. Check your tree closely, because with some stands, there can be water in the stand even though the base of the tree is no longer submerged in water.
