Come by the farmstand soon for the best selection of Christmas trees. We have Balsam, Canaan, Fraser and Korean firs in assorted sizes, starting at $53.95 for a 6.5 foot tree and running up to $89.95 for a 9-10′ tree.
These trees were freshly cut especially at Hartikka Tree Farm in eastern Connecticut — not in Canada, where so many Christmas trees are grown for the U.S. market. The only way to get a fresher Christmas tree on Martha’s Vineyard is to cut it yourself!
Canaan firs are a cross between Balsam and Fraser firs, and they’re just about the prettiest Christmas trees we’ve ever seen. Firs are also the most long-lasting Christmas trees, with needles that will hang on after other evergreens’ have dried out and and fallen off.
Come pick one out while there are still plenty in stock ! We’ll help you put it on your car.
The farmstand is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Once you have your tree, keep it fresh and green by trimming off the cut end of the trunk, where sap has formed over the original cut, before placing it in plenty of water in a stable tree stand — not too close to heat sources and lamps. Don’t let it dry out, and your fir tree will reward you by staying green till Christmas and beyond.
Now—how will you decorate it? We have fresh loose cranberries and our own Island-grown popcorn for kids of all ages to string into all-natural holiday garlands. We’re also bringing in brilliant red poinsettias, cyclamens and Christmas cactuses to brighten your home and give as holiday gifts, and our paper-white narcissus bulbs are beginning to bloom with a glorious scent.
