Tag Archives: Johnson Tree Farm

It has snowed here the last two days, and looking out my window now, I see the flakes are flying once again. Sigh.   

Much different from this morning when we actually had some blue skies and sun! I chose to head out early in search of snow-covered landscapes and found myself near the site of the old Johnson Christmas Tree Farm.   

Each year in early December we used to cut down our own christmas tree at the farm, which is conveniently located only 2 1/2 miles from our house. It was always a thrill trudging through the field, hacksaw in hand, looking for the ‘one.’ 

Alas, it was very sad for us then, when a few years back the farm was sold. 😦

Fortunately, the new owners did not sub-divide the beautiful acreage (which isn’t the norm around here as land is incredibly valuable), but instead, chose to build a gorgeous farmhouse on the site of the old barn and, are currently in the process of restoring the farm! Rumor has it they have already planted over 10,000 christmas trees on the site!   

Does this mean the farm will once again offer cut-your-own-christmas-trees in the not to distant future? 

One can only hope! 🙂
