2015 Season

It’s almost time!

We will open for the 2015 Christmas season on Saturday 11/28 from 9 am to 3 pm, with both U-cut and pre-cut trees available.  Dress for the weather, wear sturdy footwear, and don’t forget your cameras and cellphones!  If you are bringing a canine family member please remember they must be leashed at all times.

We will provide handsaws, netting and rope, and of course the trees!

This year we will be open on the following weekend dates:

11/28 – 11/29

12/5 – 12/6

12/12 – 12/13

Don’t forget, you can share your pictures with the hashtag #tildenlanefarm on Facebook and Instagram.  We love to see how our trees look once they go home with you and get all dressed up!

We can’t wait to see everyone, and we’re so honored to once again be a part of your holiday tradition.  Welcome back to the farm!

There’s a nip in the air… everyone has their Halloween costumes ready… we’re all staying up late to watch the World Series… and the trees are wearing their autumn finery.  It’s our favorite time of the year at the farm!


While we’re enjoying all of our favorite things about fall, we’re working hard to get ready for the holiday season this year, and we look forward to welcoming everybody in just a few weeks!


When you visit, be sure to check out the beautiful new sign that was handmade for us by our talented neighbor Bob Watkins!  We’re thrilled with his great work and we think it’s a wonderful addition to the farm.

Over Memorial Day Weekend we transplanted several hundred baby trees to prepare for future seasons!  Right now these baby trees are only as tall as Logan but in four or five years they will be just right for Christmas trees.

Thank you!

We are closed for the 2014 season, and we’d like to thank all of our customers for choosing us to be a part of your holiday traditions.  Remember, if you’d like to share a picture of your decorated Tilden Lane tree with us you can post it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tag it #tildenlanefarm – we love to see how our trees look once they’re in their holiday finery!

We look forward to seeing everyone next year, and we wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy 2015.  From the entire Tilden family, we wish you a very Merry Christmas.


Herbert S. Tilden

As many of our friends and neighbors have heard, in early November Herbert S. Tilden died at the age of 92 at his home on the farm, surrounded by his family.   We look forward to honoring his memory this season. In addition to his lifelong work as a farmer, with his  wife of 50 years, Mable Flathmann Tilden, at his side, he raised five sons- the late Jeffrey (Ann), Bruce (Jeanne), Lee (Diane), Donald (Cyndy), and John (Christine). He was the  proud grandfather of Abigail, Rebecca (Mike), Andrew, Emily (Jon), Daniel,and David, and great-grandfather of Logan.

Following in his own father’s footsteps, Herb was a 68 year member of the Greenlawn Volunteer Fire Department.  He also served four terms as a Commissioner of the Greenlawn Fire District.  Herb was instrumental in the founding of the ambulance service of the GFD Rescue Squad in 1961.  He is shown below (far left) with fellow Squad members receiving an award in 1964 for a rescue where a car accident victim with a broken neck was safely extricated and transported without further injury or paralysis.

His sons Bruce and Lee, and Lee’s wife Diane, are proud to carry on the family tradition of GFD service for the third generation.

Like dandelion seeds in the wind, our memories of a life well lived will always surround us.
