Welcome to Greene Meadows Farm
It is our objective to provide a traditional Christmas experience to our friends, neighbors,
We invite you to come out to the farm and search through over 7 acres of trees or choose from our
selection of fresh pre-cut trees featuring the Concolor Fir.
After you've either cut a tree from the fields or
selected a pre-cut tree, visit our new Christmas Shop, enjoy a cup of complimentary Hot Chocolate or Cider and a Candy Cane,
and browse our selection of ornaments and other decorations and gift items.
Augment your traditional family decorations
by choosing a freshly made wreath, table center piece, swag, or garland.
Visit the lambs and don't forget your
camera...you'll want to capture the moment or take a picture of the beautiful mountains and scenery.
A Note to Our Friends, Neighbors, Loyal,
and New Customers...
hard to believe but Christmas is almost here. We've been busy preparing for your visit. Our regular customers will notice some changes this year. The Nor-easter
we had back in March hit us pretty hard. 14 large trees were blown down too include the "Port a Pot Tree".
We also lost a number of Christmas trees that were blown sideways. The Red shed was rolled twice and has now been moved
to the location where the "Port a Pot Tree" was. Over half the shingles on the Sales Shed were
blown off and we've replaced them with a metal roof. A number of the Scotch Pines were impacted by the wind and a fungus
caused by the wet summer and had to be cut out. This presented an opportunity to move our precut trees off the
driveway; they are now located where the Red shed used to be. So don't worry when you come out and don't see the precuts
on the side of the driveway, we still have them.
As I mentioned in the update I will pick up the Pre-cut trees early next week.
I have ordered a 125 additional tress this year that include Concolor, Fraser Firs of a variety of heights to include 12
foot Fraser Firs, and a selection of Canaan Firs which were very popular last year. These additional trees should
ensure a sufficient inventory for this year. For our Concolor Fir customers,
we will continue to have a nice selection pre-cut
trees from our supplier in Pennsyvannia. Remember all of our pre-cut trees are cut the week of Thanksgiving
and are stored out of the wind and sun to preserve freshness. We continue to have a nice selection of taller
trees, 8-9 feet and for those looking the "Griswold" tree, I have a number of
trees that are 12 feet and over.
For choose and cut we have a nice selection of White Pines and a reduced selection
of Canaan Firs, Scotch Pines and White Spruce.
By popular demand, we continue to offer our Greene Meadows
Farm private label preserves, jelly's, and relishes that include Apple Butter, Black Berry Preserves,
Pumpkin Butter, Horseradish Mustard and Hot Pepper Jelly. Our new selection this year is Strawberry Cranberry Preserves. These
items make great stocking "stuffers" and great gifts for friends and family. Remember to reserve a jar or
two for your own enjoyment.
on demand, we will also continue to offer the Krinner Tree Stand; you may recall Anne refers to it as the
"marriage saver" stand. Once you see the demonstration you'll want one.
We will continue to have youth sports clubs and the Boy Scouts providing
hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas and bake goods on most Saturdays; I'll post these in weekly updates. Plan to
come out and have lunch on the farm while supporting these great organizations.
Santa was so impressed with the letters he received last year that he's agreed
to provide the "Special Mail Box" again this year. As you may remember
John had a long talk with Santa last year and he agreed to
give us a special mail box for direct mailing to the North Pole. So if your interested in sending Santa a
letter, you can bring it with you to the Farm or we will have paper and pencils so you can write one during your
visit. An Elf from the North Pole Post Office comes down after each weekend and picks up the letters so you can
be sure Santa is going to see them. See Picture Tab
A Ho Ho Hogan and Big Bo Update....Both are settling down some, however
they still believe their puppies. Hogans around 80 lbs and Bo is a 100 lbs or more; acting like puppies at that weight
can and does lead to trouble. So both are not quite ready for prime time yet,. I'm sure Garrett
will bring him down on a leash or you can see him in the back yard.
of you may remember Raven the black cat who used to follow everyone around, unfortunately she died of old age; I believe everyone
will miss seeing her.
shop will be open with tree care supplies, wreaths, and unique items to include ornaments, and decorations. The
shop is always warm and you can find a hot cup of cider or hot chocolate to keep you happy.
We say this every year and it is true...The
most enjoyable part of the farm is visiting with our friends and neighbors who return each year to make us a part
of their Christmas and meeting the new folks who venture out to Greene Meadows in search of that traditional Christmas
For your convenience we accept checks and credit
We look forward to seeing you again this year!
John, Anne, Morgan, and Garrett
