"It was the first time for my family. It was magical!! If I had to pin down my favorite part, it would be walking up to the North Pole. The view up there is spectacular!!" Courtney

OR...

You may stay closer to home to select your Christmas tree from a field of over 6,000 Balsam, Concolor, Fraser, and Blue Spruce of various heights. It is here you will come upon a variety of Christmas characters to enhance the experience of finding your tree.

CHOOSE A REAL CHRISTMAS TREE...
THE ENVIRONMENTAL CHOICE

Not only does one acre of Christmas trees provide fresh oxygen for everyone, this acre also provides a habitat for wild flowers, birds, and beneficial insects.

MAPLE SYRUP

Every spring our sugarhouse comes alive with the sweet smell of maple. It is here where we boil down maple sap on our wood-fired evaporator to make our delicious maple syrup.

In this photo, these maple syrup sample bottles are arranged from 1st to last boil. As the season progresses, notice the color changes of the syrup produced.

— Early season, light, delicate tasting maple syrup is often used to make maple cream and candy.
— Mid-season, medium color, rich tasting maple syrup is the perfect topping.
— Late season, dark color, robust tasting maple syrup is ideal for cooking and baking.

          $58 gallon
          $34 ½ gallon
          $22 quart
