Christmas tree farm offers family fun

November 15, 2018 by  

Families can enjoy the fun of cutting their own Christmas tree at Carl and Dorothy Young’s Christmas Tree Farm in the weeks leading up to the big day. The farm is located about 25 minutes outside of Centerville.

At the time of the first planting, there were about 1,500 trees. Today, with the expansion over the years, there are over 27,000 trees onsite with a variety of types. Douglas Fir, Blue Spruce, Black Hills Spruce, Canaan Fir and original pines can all be found at the Christmas tree farm.

A unique holiday gift shop is on the premises offering wreaths, decorations, and custom gifts and items. Roping, grave blankets and pillows and crosses can also be purchased in the gift shop. Ornaments can be personalized to include names and dates. Business cards make a great tool for customers to have and refer to for future visits and online purchases. Promotional pens are great giveaways as a reminder of a venue while creating brand recognition. A line of products that may be good for corporate gifts can be found online as well.

The entity supplies a saw for cutting the tree, as well as a sled for bringing it back to the barn. The farm team will shake out the tree, wrap it and assist in tying it to a vehicle. Complimentary hot chocolate along with popcorn is available at the gift shop to warm up after the tree cutting.

The fun begins on November 23 and continues through December 26.
