As usual, Mother Nature treated us to another interesting year. A fairly wet Spring followed by a very dry late summer led to some concern on our part for the health of our trees. Fortunately, the vast majority of our trees did well, especially the 2500 new ones that were planted this Spring. If all goes according to plan, these transplants will be your Christmas trees in @8 years.
Last year, we received fewer trees from our long time Pennsylvania supplier and many of you may remember that our season ended early due to lack of available trees. After much searching and hard work, we will be getting additional trees this year from two other suppliers. (one in Pennsylvania and one in New York state). We hope that this increase in available trees will allow us to have trees for all our loyal customers and our new ones.
We are slowly adding more merchandise to our barn shop and hope that you will check it out when you come in for your cup of warm cider. Thanks to everyone who has supported us in the past. We always look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones each year. Welcome to Christmas 2022!!
YES- WE CAN DRILL TREES FOR STAND-STRAIGHT AND TIM MITCHELL TREE STANDS.

We also have some smaller White Spruce and Serbian Spruce (@4') available. Please note that these trees should only stay indoors for a week to ten days. If you are interested, we will be happy to give you detailed instructions on how to care for a live tree.

CHRISTMAS TREES AND GREENERY
Christmas season has always been special at Corkum's. It is the time of the year that we welcome the most people to our farm and while it is a lot of hard work, the joy of seeing old friends and happy young children makes it all worth while. Our approach is very low key. We do not offer all the "bells and whistles" that many other Christmas Tree farms do, but we hope that our more laid back style also can be appreciated. We will welcome you, offer you a complimentary glass of warm cider, try to keep the winter mud down to a minimum while offering quality trees and Christmas greenery at fair prices. All of our workers are our own family members or friends who enjoy helping out during the season each year. We look forward to seeing you this season and hope that you will become an annual visitor.
KEEPING YOUR FRESH CUT TREE FRESH
To keep your tree from drying out during the Christmas season, we recommend that you:
-MAKE A FRESH CUT OF AT LEAST 1/2" ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE JUST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN YOUR STAND
-KEEP YOUR STAND FULL OF WATER AND CHECK IT FREQUENTLY, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST COUPLE DAYS WHEN IT WILL TAKE UP A LOT OF WATER. DO NOT ALLOW THE WATER LEVEL TO GO BELOW THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE AS THE SAP WILL SEAL IT SHUT AND IT WILL BE UNABLE TO ABSORB ANY ADDITIONAL WATER
-DO NOT PLACE YOUR TREE NEAR ANY DIRECT HEAT SOURCE
-MAKE SURE YOUR LIGHTS ARE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER. THE NEWER LED BULBS GIVE OFF LESS HEAT THAN OLDER TYPES OF BULBS AND USE MUCH LESS ENERGY
