Visiting a Christmas Tree Farm Near New York City – Christmas Tree Brooklyn

Visiting a Christmas Tree Farm Near New York City

To make sure we have the freshest Christmas trees in NYC, we always spread our deliveries out over the season. We get an early shipment, a mid-season shipment, and an end-of-season shipment.

Our trees haven’t been sitting on the street for weeks by the time they make it to your home. They’ve been sitting on our farmer friend’s farm and multi-generational family business in Pennsylvania. We get our mid and late season trees here for their fast turn-around time. We pay a little extra , but it means we don’t have to overbuy in the beginning of the season, and we can wait until the very last minute to cut your tree–keeping it as fresh as possible all through the Holidays.

Morgan and I took a trip up there today to make sure the trees looked good, and had them cut fresh from the ground.

We hit the road at 6 AM to make sure we got up there and back in time for the evening rush.

Hanging out with Morgan. In between business talks, we talked about whether or not past lives exist, and why French Canadians that live in Louisiana, Maine and Quebec left France. Care to weigh in on either subject? Hit us up on Instagram @Christmas TreeBrooklyn or Facebook to let us know.img_0277-medium Still driving. So much wilderness.

Here’s some fresh-cut 5-6 foot trees ready to be loaded on our truck.img_0285-mediumJim, the owner of the farm, inspected and cut each tree by hand with some friends from town. He’s been farming Christmas trees his entire life.

Jim’s father has been a Christmas tree farmer for 68 years! He started when he was 11. At 79, he’s as strong as anyone, and I had to work extra fast to keep up with him!

img_0300-medium Jim’s father is a real old school guy. Very cool.

img_0295-medium After we loaded the truck, the guys gave us some home-made hard cider. It was really good!

img_0306-medium img_0307-medium They had cider as old as 5 years in these old Jack Dan iels whiskey barrels. You could really taste the flavor of the wood. Really good and fresh from the tap!

img_0309-medium Of course, we had to try out all of the different aged versions of it! For science.
