What types of trees do you have?
How much do the trees cost?
All harvest-your-own trees are one price independent of tree size. In 2019, the cost of a Harvest-Your-Own tree is $75 which includes $4.48 tax as well as a farm-designed, CT-made pewter ornament from Woodbury Pewter. All harvest-your-own tree customers also receive a beautiful farm-designed, CT-made pewter ornament. Guests wishing to purchase a fresh-cut tree can visit our historic barnyard on the Homestead Farm. Prices of fresh cut trees vary, as these trees are sold by the foot (trees range in size from 2 feet to 14 feet tall). Fresh-cut trees range in price from $25 for an "elf tree" to more than $200 for the largest of trees, with a wide selection priced from $49 to $109.
How big are the trees?
We strongly recommend that you measure your ceiling height before your farm visit! Out in the fields, trees appear smaller to you than they actually are. Also, please be advised that the very tall trees are extremely heavy, requiring a substantial vehicle to transport them home and often a special tree stand. For those looking for a tree larger than 15 feet tall, please stop by the farm to make an appointment to pick up your tree during a weekday.
What should I bring when I come to the farm to cut a tree?
我们强烈建议你带篷布通过树田来拉你的树。我们做绑树您的爱车提供免费的麻线。我们也有游客借手锯。如果你拥有一手锯以及在12月第一次两个周末正在访问农场，你不妨把它。（无轴或链锯允许的。）请穿结实的鞋和保暖的衣物 - 它可以在山顶受凉！

Can my group come to your farm?
We provide parking areas for your vehicles – however, space is limited and therefore we do not have the ability to provide room for tailgate parties. We love to see guests standing at their tailgates, sipping some hot cocoa from a thermos, after their hikes in the fields; however due to safety considerations, tents, chairs, picnic blankets, cooking of any kind, ball playing and the like are not allowed in our parking lots. It is expected every car in our lot will leave with at least one tree. Please see our complete policy on贴和停车场点心. These guidelines were developed to ensure all visitors have a safe and happy time while harvesting a Christmas tree. Thank you for your understanding.
Can I bring a picnic to the farm?
我们根据收获，你需要用三明治和健康零食滋养自己一棵树后明白，所以你被允许有一个温和的，安全的“挡板”我们guidelines. Please note, there is no outside food and picnicking permitted in the courtyard and pavilion adjacent to the Harvest Kitchen and Winery. Our Harvest Kitchen creates farm-made cookies from scratch and serves them along with mulled cider, cold cider and coffee. Guests may enjoy a seat by the bonfire, but we ask when being in our courtyard, pavilion and patio that you support the farm by only eating items purchased at the Harvest Kitchen. Also, there is no alcohol allowed outside of the winery, including bottles of Jones wines. Thank you for your understanding.
Yes, your dog is allowed during tree season as long as it is on a leash at all times and remains on the paths in the Christmas tree woods. No pet dogs are allowed in the winery, gift shop or wreath barn. Damage done by dogs is the responsibility of the owner. We request you bring a plastic bag and scoop the poop into farm waste containers. Thanks!
Do you carry the trees to our car and tie it on?
我们尝试提供服务,当我们可以,易翔ially for pre-cuts in our barnyard. However on our busy weekends, in the cut-your-own fields, it's difficult to have enough crew to help tie trees to cars. We do provide twine so that you can tie it to your car if our crew is unavailable.
Do you deliver trees?
No, we do not deliver trees. However, in our barnyard at the main farm, we do sell fresh-cut trees and we have staff that can help you select the tree, carry it to your car, and tie it to your car if you wish. In the barnyard, we have an assortment of small trees that are light and manageable.
Do you take credit cards?
We’ve worked it out with the elves at the North Pole that Santa will visit us for our annual visit from Santa on the weekend before Christmas! Weather permitting Santa usually visits those days from 10am to 4pm. In 2019, Santa visits the weekend of Dec. 21 and 22. Join Santa by the hearthside in our beautiful Wreath Barn.
Is the farm handicap accessible?
Keep the tree outdoors (but protected from the wind and sun) or on an unheated porch or patio until you are ready to decorate. To help make your tree last for several weeks you should: Use a good tree stand that holds lots of water - up to a gallon is best. Cut at least one half inch from the bottom of the trunk before putting the tree in its stand, and you can use warm water the first time you put your tree in the stand. A tree oozes sap, which will harden and block water flow unless set in water immediately. Water the tree daily using plenty of water, and check it often to be sure it doesn't dry out. If the water level drops below the trunk, a seal forms just as it does on a cut flower and a new cut is necessary. A properly watered tree is very unlikely to become a fire hazard. If possible, locate the tree in a cooler part of the room, away from heaters, which speed the drying-out process.
