Bring a hand saw (or use one of ours). No axes or chainsaws please.
Please leave your dog at home... but do bring the kids, grandma & grandpa.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Please do not ask us to pick a tree for you as they all look perfect to us.
Visiting a farm in winter is colder, wetter, windier & muddier than in the city. Dress warmly & wear good boots.

Please do not bring glass bottles and other dispos-able items to the field.
Watch for stumps and be careful on uneven ground and ice.
Trees appear smaller in the field than in your house. Most house ceilings are 8 ft in height. A person 6 ft in height can reach to about 8ft on his or her tippy-toes.
Please make sure you choose the perfect tree before cutting.
To make sure our clients have a positive experience at the Farm, professional photographers are required to contact us before coming onto the property to run photography sessions on the Farm so we can regulate the number of photographers.
your treeTree Care
Keep the tree outdoors out of the wind and sun until you are ready to put it up.
If temperatures are above freezing a tree can be kept in the garage in a bucket of water.
Before you put the tree up make a fresh straight cut about 1 inch from the bottom. This opens up the tree trunk so it can take water.
Keep the tree away from things such as fireplaces and heaters that may prematurely dry the tree.
Use a good quality tree stand that will hold the tree securely and hold at least 4 litres of water.
