Snow !

Hi Folks,
It is the last official weekend of our U-Cut, and mother nature is marking the occasion with light snow, awesome!
So dress warm for your visit to enjoy a walk in pretty scenery, choose and cut your perfect tree, warm up with hot chocolate and cookies in the elf house, and consider a few pantry gifts (see photos under Christmas trees) to top up those Christmas stockings, before heading home.... and getting ready for a warm and cozy Christmas.

Choose and Cut starts December 2017

Our Christmas tree U-Cut will run on weekends from Dec. 2nd-17th, from10:00am-5:00pm

Enjoy a day of family fun in the Canadian outdoors: plenty of fresh air to put a pep in your stride, a hay ride up the Gryphon's Hill, choose and cut your perfect tree, then finish off with complimentary cookies, hot chocolate and apple cider served up in the "Elf House". Oh and most important, taking your tree home and decorating it for all to enjoy!

Hope to see you soon,
Muna.

Christmas Tree Harvest 2017

It is that time of year again and the Lunenburg Balsam Fir Co-Op of which we are members, is well into the wholesale christmas tree harvest.
It is a fast spaced and ever-changing world out there, where what is real and what is not, is often up for question.
In our small corner of the world "Real Trees" matter, and that is what we deliver.

Our Christmas tree U-Cut will run on weekends from Dec. 2nd-17th, from10:00am-5:00pm
Anyone wishing to visit outside these days and hours can contact Fred at (902) 824-0526

Sugar bush adventures for 2017.

For 2017 we continue to tap our sugar and red maple trees using buckets, as well as newly installed sap lines.To improve efficiency in processing the sap, we have invested in a "mini pro" evaporator from LaPierre, and a filtration/bottling system from CDL. The goal is to be able to process larger batches of sap with a view to consistency in the quality of the finished syrup. Syrup will be made available for purchase at the farm gate, based on enquiry. Keep tuned for periodic updates as we develop our sugar bush!

U-Cut Closed Due to Weather Conditions.

Weather conditions have made the roads icy and hazardous on our main farm road, especially going up Gryphon Hill where a good number of customers were finding their trees. Snow conditions there and the uneven terrain have also made it challenging to access and bring out trees. With people's safety in mind, we regret to have had to close the U-Cut for the remainder of the season.

Two weeks to Christmas!

Hard to believe there are only two weeks to go till Christmas!
