The Christmas Farm has been in the Miller family for over 50 years. Three generations of our family have been involved with growing trees. The Christmas Farm covers 310 acres in the beautiful Coulee region of western Wisconsin.
Each spring we plant 3000 to 4000 Christmas tree seedlings. It takes at least seven to ten years to grow a seven to eight foot Christmas tree, depending on the variety. These trees must be cared for each year, eliminating competition from weeds and controlling for damage from insects and disease. After the trees are two to four feet tall they must be trimmed each year so they will develop the desired shape and fullness. Only about half of the trees we plant ever develop into saleable Christmas trees. Like a lot of things, tree farming is more difficult than it may seem.
In addition to the land devoted to growing Christmas trees, we have about 60 acres of planted White and Red Pine plantations, some more than fifty years old. These trees are being managed for pulpwood, lumber products, and utility poles. Our farm also has over 150 acres of natural forests, a mix of both hardwoods (oak and hickory) and softer woods (Red and White Pine). We have had several timber harvests during our ownership of this property. We have always sought the advice of professional foresters in these sales in order to ensure our goals of sustainable forestry and enhanced wildlife habitat.
The Christmas Farm will be open for Choose-and-Cut Christmas tree sales starting the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 28, 2014. We will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only through December 14th. Our hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p..m.
We will have free horse drawn wagon rides November 28, 29 and 30; December 6 and 7; and December 13 and 14, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
