Seekonk Tree Farm is at 32 Seekonk Cross Rd. Great Barrington, Massachusetts and is geographically located in the Southwestern corner of Berkshire County, 2 miles east of the New York State line and 12 miles north of Connecticut line. The farm is on the western edge of Great Barrington and on the eastern border of the town of Alford. Prior to being planted with trees it was part of a large dairy farm. It is a beautiful area with scenic views, of open pasture, crop land, and distant mountains. The farm was started by Peter Sweet Sr. on a part time basis. Peter Sr. taught Technology Education at Searles Middle School in Great Barrington before retiring in 2000 after 28 years. The first planting of trees in 1978 consisted of a few hundred Scotch pine and Douglas fir planted just north of the house.
Since that initial planting, thousands of trees have been planted. The entire farm is in its second rotation or in some cases, third rotation of trees. The majority of trees now are firs with Fraser fir being the most popular.
Seekonk Tree Farm is primarily a "choose and cut" Christmas Tree Farm, however many tree species are grown just for the balled and burlap nursery business. The farm consists of two seven acre parcels in very close proximity to each other. Trees are sold from both parcels. Tree selection in each parcel varies slightly from year to year depending on the maturity cycle of the trees. Visitors can enjoy the scenic beauty of the area while walking the farm to find that perfect tree. Visitors also have the option of choosing from a large number of fresh cut trees displayed both at the house and the farm stand. Fresh cut trees from 3-12 ft. are displayed from Dec 1 through Christmas Eve. Additional products included an assortment of wreaths, kissing balls, mail box huggies, roping or garland, potted living trees, stand straight tree stands and maple syrup.
