Covid -19 Guidance

These are the guidelines in accordance to The State of Minnesota, CDC, National Christmas Tree Association and others for doing business during the Covid-19 Pandemic

  • Do not come to the farm if you are sick or have a fever.

  • Keep family unit together when choosing a tree. If you usually bring an extended family to choose your tree, we ask that you limit to just your immediate family to reduce the number of people on our farm which will help with personal contact among all customers.

  • Contact-less Greeting: We will try to greet you, but if we are involved assisting other customers, there are maps and directions at the outside sanitation station next to the saw stand on the north east corner of the pole building.

  • There will be no complementary cider or cookies this year in the gift shop. We will offer prepackaged candy canes, one per person.

  • In place of the cider and cookies, we will offer a free ornament, one per tree purchased.

  • No outside food can be brought and eaten while visiting our farm.

  • To help reduce the number of people at the farm at one time, we will be opening a week earlier, the Saturday and Sunday before Thanksgiving (November 21 & 22) from 9 am to 5 pm. Then, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 5 pm. Our selling season will extend until the tree supply is gone.

  • If you bring a dog, it must be on a leash and kept away from other families. Please pick up after the dog and take the package home with you.

  • We have added an outside pay window “Express Pay” on west end of the pole building. This will be for contact-less payment (cards, not cash) and for paying for your tree, bailing, tree bag,wreaths, gnomes and outside greens. Prices will be in even amounts with the sales tax included. Cash, check or charge payments for tree purchase and gift shop items will still be inside the pole building with the entrance moved to the back door, one way traffic inside, and exit out the front door. Maintain social distancing while inside the gift shop. The gift shop will be somewhat smaller due to the second pay window.

  • Face coverings are encouraged while getting your tree, and required while inside the gift shop or portable restroom.

  • Counter surfaces, saws, equipment will be sanitized at least daily or as needed. Sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer will be available by the saw stand for your use.

  • If you have your own bow saw or non- gas powered pruning saw (sawzall), we encourage you to bring it. No axes, gas powered chain saws, or hatchets (insurance concerns here).

  • Bring your own sled or toboggan to take your tree out of the field. We still have loaner sleds.

  • Help outside workers by maintaining social distancing.

  • Photos by professional photographers during the selling season is prohibited.
