Christmas

The Fir Farm

When it all began

The Fir Farm has been growing Christmas trees for almost 40 years!

Our Christmas hours

We usually open the Saturday after Thanksgiving and remain open every Fri Sat Sun 10-4 up to Christmas Eve.

About those beautiful wreaths

We make all of our wreaths by hand starting around Thanksgiving. Just like no 2 trees are the same all of our wreaths are unique and we are always experimenting with new ideas. Get those special orders in early!

Elves and Volunteers

Volunteers are welcome please send us a message in November. From making wreaths to tying bows there is no better way to catch that early Christmas spirit!

Trees for Troops

Trees For Troops

About

 For many years, Christmas tree growers have been providing free trees for charitable purposes. In the 1990s, some organized efforts started through which trees were given to National Guard units and other military personnel who were deployed in peacekeeping efforts in Kosovo and other regions of  the world.

In 2005, the National Christmas Tree Association developed the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation (CSF) as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to advance the spirit of Christmas year-round. The foundation quickly developed plans for a national Trees for Troops program that could unify the individual programs of tree growers and state Christmas tree associations.

The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and our corporate partner FedEx organized the 2005 program in only 45 days and delivered 4,300 Real Christmas Trees to families at five military bases in the U.S. and overseas. The following year, the program nearly tripled when 11,854 military families received trees. In 2007 the program grew even more, as CSF and FedEx delivered 16,846 trees to more than 40 bases in the U.S. and overseas to seven countries. The program has continued to grow and expand every year since its inception through the generosity of donors and the work of many volunteers.

In 2011, CSF and FedEx reached a monumental milestone by delivering the100,000th Real Christmas Tree. To date, the Trees for Troops program has delivered more than 157,000 trees to military families in the U.S. and to troops stationed overseas in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar, Spain and Guam. Christmas Tree growers and individuals around the country donate the trees, while FedEx provides the shipping for them.

While a donated Christmas Tree may seem like a small gift, CSF receives countless e-mails and letters from families saying it was the best gift they could have received during the holidays. Not only are many military members away from their families during the holidays, but many military families are also away from their extended families. In some cases, “Dad” or “Mom” is overseas, while the rest of the family is also far from home. It is our hope that the gift of a Real Christmas Tree will help bring the feeling of home a little closer, wherever they may be spending their holiday, as well as alleviate some of the financial burden the holidays can bring.
Trees for Troops Weekend is Coming Up - Dec. 1 -2 2018.
Anyone can participate in Trees for Troops by visiting one of the farms or retail lots across the country that signed up to be a Trees for Troops Weekend location this year!  Each of these locations will host a FedEx trailer parked at their farm/lot so you can purchase a tree and then place it on the truck to be donated and delivered to a military family at one of our participating bases the following week. Over 5,000 trees are usually purchased and donated during Trees for Troops Weekend!

When We Started

​​In early 2016 we planted a few varieties of Cider Apple Trees: Grimes Golden, Wickson, Winesap and of course Harrison.
 

About

The Harrison Apple is one of the most famous 18th Century American Cider Apples and was originally grown around Newark,NJ before and after the American Revolution. It was long thought to be extinct until one was discovered in Livingston,NJ in 1976 at an old cider mill.
