Christmas Trees Trees and wreaths are available at True Value Hardware Store in Columbus till Christmas or sold out.
For chose and cut trees, I will be here on the farm from 10 am to 4 pm Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 19 and 20 but will be in the Field part of the time. You will have to look for me or call my cell phone 920-210-2080 for help.
We will be working with a youth group from Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic Parish in Beaver Dam this year to market the trees on the farm and make Wreaths. These are Volunteers from the Church with a percentage of the gross proceeds going to their organization.
UPDATE: Dec. 14, 2015
We can do some trees by appointment also. 920-887-7530
Many trees this year in the 6 to 9 foot range with a few that will be already cut. Styles from well sheared and groomed to the wild and wooly variety. Many, very wide for those who want to fill the room.
All trees this year are short needle types. Canaan/Frazer Fir, Balsam Fir and White Spruce.
Info for next year berry season below.
4th of July: Open 7 am to 5 pm. Normal hours otherwise 7am to 7 pm.
How long will the season last:
PEAS: Out for the season.
STRAWBERRIES: Out for the season.
WEATHER and FIELD CONDITIONS: The Straw for next years fields is already made and in those big round ales you may have seen around the farm. It is rye straw which has some natural, self weeding qualities and I grow it just for the straw so I am not introducing weed seeds into the fields with the straw. I always try to have a lot of straw in the rows to keep the berries off the ground and keep away diseases that affect the berries.
Berry Hotline: (920) 887-7530
We have garden-style sweet peas, bakery (including fresh strawberry and strawberry-rhubarb pies), tomatos from Flyte Family Farms in Coloma, and honey produced by our bees right here on the farm and bottled by Stone Valley Apiary of Fall Rivers, WI.
In the berry season we are open 7am to 7pm daily, 7 days a week, as long as weather permits and we have ripe berries to pick. It is possible to be picked out for a day or early some days, especially early in the season (the first week). When that happens we have to close to allow for ripening. If we have a bad storm we have to close for a while. If the fields are very wet, then we might need to wait a while for drying (to ensure safetly) so it is always best to call the BERRY HOTLINE or check the update on this web site just prior to driving out. During the berry season, I update this site at least once a day, normally early morning. Later in the day, the Berry Hotline probably has the more current info.
