Turkish & Nordmann Firs - A Bit of Our History
old photo
In 1938, our now 4th generation family farm was born! At that time the popular Christmas tree of choice was the pine however it was not without it's problems. This said, our family took a chance in being one of the first farms, East of the Mississippi, to plant & successfully grow Douglas Fir Christmas Trees...an industry leader for that time.
In 1955 while the Douglas Fir reigned supreme, again our family continued to search for a better product to offer our customers. After much research we decided to plant Fraser Fir trees. Being one of the original farms to successfully raise them in Pennsylvania allowed us to become an industry leader & quality Fraser Fir producer.

In 1987, we again decided it was time to plant new & different trees to remain an industry leader and provide our customers with unique & exciting tree options! For the past 29 years we've aggressively pursued & narrowed our search for the next GREAT Christmas tree. After experimenting with 22 different worldwide varieties, we've decided to continue raising 4 types of trees with an emphasis on the Turkish/Nordmann Firs!

The Turkish/Nordmann Firs are the European Christmas Trees of choice due to their exquisite beauty, sturdy branches, deep green color, softer foliage & excellent needle retention. In fact, some in the industry have referred to the Turkish Fir as, "a Fraser on steroids!" While still hard to find in many areas, innovative producers of quality Christmas trees are certain to offer a selection at their plantations!

If you're interested in trying this tree AND becoming the envy of your family & friends at Christmas, we are the farm for you! We look forward to your visit during the upcoming Christmas season and thank you in advance for making "OUR farm, YOUR farm of choice!"
