Well friends, another Christmas tree season has come to a close. Thank you again for the continued support & making our holidays brighter. If you'd like to show off your tree, we'd love to show grandma & grandpa, add a photo of your decorated tree!

11/21/2021

Who's excited for opening day?! (Ya got 4 days left to get excited!) What's your favorite tree? Do you like to walk the fields or choose a parking lot tree?

The season change can only mean one thing... it almost Christmas time! We hope everyone has been in good health this last year!

Things are quite the same around here! We will open Friday the 26th (day after Thanksgiving as per usual) 10-4. We will then be open Saturday and Sunday 10-4 until we have sold out of trees.

Here we go on the "per usual" post...

*We are cash or check only. We have been this way since opening. We understand a hot spot would/could work, however, 98% of people don't get service at the farm... not something we can change 🙃

*We do not allow dogs - do you want to step in poop while picking out a tree? Smell dog pee when you get your tree home? (No thanks!)

*We are not accommodating any photographers.. this is for liability issues.. thanks for thinking of us!

*We do tie the trees onto your vehicle.. it's your job to remember to take it off before entering the garage 😉
**I'm sure for a small upcharge, the parking lot staff will tie whomever to the top and put the tree inside.

All joking aside, we'd love to see you this year! However, please stay home if you're sick and follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing/masking.

See you soon! 🎄🎄

11/30/2020

We are sold out and now closed for the season!
May the rest of your year be filled with memories and good times.

For anyone wondering about the family tree farm. 🙂

We are happy to announce we will be open to sell trees! We do ask that you follow the CDC guidelines with maintaining 6 feet apart as much as possible & masking up when that is not possible. We'd love to see each and every one of you again this year, but would like you all to be safe. For that reason, we will NOT have the Cocoa Cabin or gift shop open. The amusement train is still in debate as the cars do not allow for social distancing. Please stay tuned for more updates! As always, thanks for choosing Handley's!

**No Dogs
**Cash or check only

As many of you know or have figured out from getting your tree today, grandma (Margaret) was not checking people out. Over the summer she suffered a small stroke & just a few weeks ago came home from Solon rehabilitation. She's slowly gaining but is just not up for our busy days. If you'd like to send a Christmas card along with a photo of your tree, we are sure she'd love to see them! Please message for her address.

Come enjoy the December weather in our last day of the season! There's plenty of field trees to choose from but the precut trees are going fast! We're open until 4 tonight, cash or checks only, & no dogs! 🌲🌲

11/27/2017

This coat & hat were found in the cocoa cabin over the weekend! If anyone knows of a little one who has lost their coat, give us a call! Would be available next Saturday to come get.

November 24th is opening day!!!
See you all at 10 am, remember cash or check only and please NO dogs.

11/06/2017

As time is drawing near, we like to remind & spread the word; we open the Friday after Thanksgiving 10am to 4 pm. We do NOT allow dogs, and are cash or check only! Our large precut trees usually sell out first, so if you're looking for a tall tree, come earlier rather than later.

I'd personally like to see who would want garland! I don't believe we will be making any this year if the demand is not there. Please let us know!

Looking for some input; who needs or wants garland? If so, what lengths? I believe we have previously made 5, 10, 12, 15 (maybe), & 20(also a maybe) feet. Please comment below.

11/27/2016

Come on out to pick a tree! You can choose one from the field (no saws required) or pick one from the pre-cut trees in the parking lot.

Great way to get out & enjoy the beautiful November weather! Come ride the frosty express, & explore the gift shop. Don't forget to stop by the cabin for hot cocoa & fudge! Proceeds go to the local youth group.

Please no dogs!

Cash or check only!
