There’s starting to be some color on the trees and everyone’s back in school… and that means it’s time to start thinking about the holidays!
For the 2021 season, Tilden Lane Farm will be open for the following weekends:
Saturday November 27 and Sunday November 28
Saturday December 4 and Sunday December 5
Saturday December 11 and Sunday December 12
We are pleased to be able to start prices at the same amount as last year: trees begin at $75. Hand-made wreaths, crafted fresh on the farm by Jeanne, are available for $40 or $35 with a tree. (They make great gifts!)
As in past years, our hours will be 9 am – 3 pm, and we accept cash or local check only.
Please note our supply of cut-your-own trees is EXTREMELY limited this year so if you would like to cut your own tree we STRONGLY advise you come on Sat. 11/27/21. We cannot guarantee availability after this date. We will, as always, have pre-cut trees available in multiple varieties.
While this year our selection of trees to cut is limited, we have cleared away much old overgrown stock and are continuing to plant new fields of Christmas trees. Look around the farm and you’ll see blocks of fir and spruce seedlings growing- they take from five to seven years to reach a salable height, and Mother Nature can’t be rushed! Every year we are planting new blocks, and along with our reestablished strawberry bed and our vegetable farming partner, we are committed to the future of Tilden Lane Farm. And once again, we have farm produced honey available. The honey production was outstanding this year and if it’s a warm day you may be able to see some of the bees at work. Ask one of our “branch managers” to show you the hives!
We are still being mindful of Covid precautions: we will be providing hand sanitizer and cleaning saws between each use. If you are unvaccinated please bring and wear a mask, and if you are not feeling well or have tested positive for Covid, please stay home for the safety of everyone. Due to New York State regulations, we unfortunately cannot allow dogs on the farm; we will miss seeing your furry friends but please leave them at home!
We are very glad to be able to welcome you back to the Farm for another Christmas season and we look forward to seeing you all in a few short months!
