Precut & U-Cut Christmas Trees

A Family Tradition Since 1949

At Abbey Farms, we agree with Andy Williams that Christmas season is “the most wonderful time of the year!” We invite you to join in the tradition of hunting for  Abbey Farms grown Christmas trees this winter. Or, for those of you who’d rather choose a precut Fir tree, we always have a large inventory of fresh cut fir trees. All of our precut trees come from a large Christmas tree operation in Michigan owned by Father Andrew’s family.

Tree shaking, netting and assistance with tree tying are always complimentary. While you wait, step inside the Nagel Farmstead Emporium for one of our famous apple cider donuts and hot chocolate. If there is snow on the ground, we will provide sleds to enjoy around the farm.

Merry Christmas! 

U-Cut Christmas Trees 

The Process:

We are a farm of do-it-yourselfers! We believe that getting dirty can create some of the best memories.  Last field entry 1 hour before close.  FIELDS DO NOT HAVE LIGHTS! 


How it Works: 

  1. Come to Abbey Farms!

  2. Check in at the Nagel Farmstead Emporium for a field map and saw.

  3. Take your car out to the field and hunt down your perfect tree (sizes up to 8' in the field).

  4. Casually place your tree on your car

  5. Return to the Nagel Farmstead Emporium for complimentary tree shaking, tie down assistance and of course - your complimentary apple cider donut!



We have plenty of saws for a fully refundable $10 deposit - just check in at the Farmstead Emporium store or one of the red huts (if open).

Fir Christmas Tree Field Availability:

Due to Abbey Farms soil and climate, many popular Christmas trees just won't grow. However, Abbey Farms is lucky to have a Monk relative in the Christmas tree business! Each week during Christmas, Abbey Farms stands a new selection of fresh cut popular Fir Christmas trees!

Tree Types:

Types of Fir trees will vary year to year, however we will typically carry: Fraser Fir, Canaan Fir, Noble Fir and a few new varieties as they become available.


Select Precuts $9.75 per foot

Premium Precuts $10.50 - $15 per foot (depending on size), plus tax (be sure to ask for a fresh cut on your tree!). 

Keep your tree FRESH all season with these tips: 

1. Cut 1" from base of tree truck no more than 1 hour before water! 

2. Keep tree bowl full of water - check daily - never let water go below base of tree!

3. Add a tree preservative (sold in store).

4. Place tree out of direct sun light & away from heat source! Keep it cool!
