It's our favorite time of year! Preperations are well under way, the Pumpkin Bread is being baked this weekend and the warming hut is almost ready for visitors. We are excited to see all our old friends and meet a bunch of new ones this year. Opening Day, as always, is the day after Thanksgiving.
While most everything will be the same as you remember it around here, there is one major change this year. We will only be getting one truck load of trees from our Oregon tree farm this year. When they are gone we will close the farm for the season. So make your plans, gather the family and get a date on the calendar to come visit us early this year!
We have a beautiful selection of fresh cut Noble Firs as well as the rare Silvertips. These trees are cut the week of Thanksgiving, and because we keep them in water, they are sure to remain fresh and beautiful in your home through the first of the year.
The choose 'n cut trees are scarce this year, and will be for awhile. We palnted over 500 seedlings last winter, but were unable to water because of the drought. We estimate that we lost about 75% of the seedlings planted. So cutting your own tree is your thing, plan to get here early in the season! We just don't have that many ready to cut.
Santa Clause is Coming to the Farm!
Santa and Friends will make their annual visits to our farm on Saturday, December 6th and Sunday, December 14th from noon untill the last child gets a visit and a treat. This is a great chance to boost the holiday spirit. Santa, Mrs. Claus and a couple of the elves have been visiting our farm for several years now and it's always a special treat. No need to wait in line at the mall this year as there will be spectacular photo ops at a real farm!

Tree for Troops
For the 7th straight year, Victorian Christmas Tree Ranch is the thrilled to participate in the Trees for Troops program! This extraordinary program, sponsored by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and Fed Ex, sends a little bit of home and the holidays to our troops and their families. For $25.00 our customers can sponsor a real Christmas tree, including a personalized message, to be sent to our troops at home and abroad, who can't be with their loved ones during the holidays. This program holds great honor and significance meaning for our family and our participation is dedicated to "The Colonel", the late Marvin H. Good, our father, Grandfather and Great Pop.
"As the family of an Air Force colonel, we are thrilled to be such an integral part of Tree for Troops. We have shipped over 450 trees as part of this amazing program in the past three years" says Adam, "and this year we hope to help sponsor at least 200".
