Evergreen Acres Christmas Tree Farm - Wisconsin
I've been going with Nat and her family to cut down Christmas trees the day after Thanksgiving for 15 years. And in that time, we've gone to a place down in Wilmington called Tammen Treeberry Farm. When we moved into our house in Downers, Nat decided to have two trees inside. One smaller one for the front room and a larger one for our family room. That worked fine in theory. But, what we found down at Tammen Tree farm was that they had a good selection of small and medium-sized trees. However, they lacked in what I'd call "larger" trees.
That meant that last year, we called an audible and ONLY bought one tree down at Tammen. We ended up buying the second - "larger" tree that was pre-cut from Wannemaker's in town here. And with that decision, we paid *double* what they were charging down at Tammen, but we had a really lovely tree.
This year, Nat's folks decided to try something new. A trip to a whole new tree farm - one up in Wisconsin called Evergreen Acres Christmas Tree Farm LLC. The University of Illinois Extension office has a page up for their farm here. And you can see the card at the top of this post that serves as the receipt. A few things of note: First...I paid $140 for two trees. $65 per tree + $2/shake + $3/bale for each one.
Below, the back of the card shows the location:
