We are closed for the season. Thank you to everyone who came out!
Our staff gives you an orientation of the field and an educational overview of the six varieties of trees we offer, and then sends you down the path to the headwaters of Salmon Creek! Choose and cut your favorite tree. On your return, we offer to bail your tree, and provide the twine to secure it to your car. Then, relax and stay a while and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa, spiced cider or coffee around the fire! For further insights to the goings on at the farm, you might check out our Farm Fresh News.
The farm includes a variety of trees: Grand Fir, Turkish (Nordmann) Fir, Douglas Fir (the PNW favorite), Noble Fir, Scotch (Scots) Pine, and Colorado Blue Spruce trees. For a sneak peak at the fields visit our farm tour page for some YouTube videos!
In the 1960's, Steve Harvey, a retired forestry professional and his wife, Vassa, known county-wide for her home-baked cookies, planted Christmas trees on the Irle family farm, just east of Sumner, in the Puyallup Valley. The Harvey's helped start a trend toward friendly family operated small tree farms. From berries, bulbs, rhubarb, fruit, cows, and school teaching, the Irle family's 5th generation has just taken over operations.
