Choose-n-Cut Christmas trees start the SATURDAY after Thanksgiving (November 27th, 2021) and are available as long as they last. We have Douglas and Fraser Fir trees available for Choose-n-Cut in our fields and some pre-cut Fraser Fir trees as well. Our fields are open for Christmas trees from 8:30am to 4pm on weekends until December 5th. On weekends after December 6th (Dec 11th/12th, 18th/19th) we are open for Christmas trees from 10am to 4pm. We are open from 10am to 4pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The farm is closed on Tuesdays.
For the 2021 season, We will REQUIRE all customers to make RESERVATIONS to be admitted to the Christmas tree plantation to cut a tree from the field OR to the area to select a pre-cut tree between Saturday, November 27th and Sunday, December 5th, 2021. If you are interested in selecting/getting your Christmas tree on December 6th or at a later date there are no reservations required and you are welcome to simply show up to pick your 2021 Christmas tree – while supplies last.
Before you make a reservation, we want to give you a little information on how Christmas tree reservations will work.
Do I really need a reservation?
– Yes, to get a Christmas tree (whether pre-cut or Choose-n-cut) you will need a reservation for the time period between November 27th to December 5th. Reservations will be by tree. One reservation = one Christmas Tree. If you are planning on getting 2 (or more) trees, you will need 2 (or more) reservations.
– You do not need a reservation to get a Christmas tree on December 6th or at a later date – while they last.
– You do not need a reservation to visit our Farm Market or Bakery. You may come at any time.
– If you are looking to walk through the fields and take pictures, we do have a photography policy and you do need special reservations for that. Please email email@example.com for details. Of course, while selecting your tree you are welcome to take family pictures but no professional photographers will be allowed in the Christmas tree area at that time. We expect this time will be a family activity only.
How much is a reservation?
The reservation is $40 which is a credit towards one tree (plus a small service fee). There is no limit on the number of people or number of cars per tree as we believe it is usually one family and one car per tree.
What are the operating hours?
Weekends we offer reservations (for admission to pick a tree) every 15 minutes starting at 8:30am until 3:30pm. Weekdays we offer reservations every 30 minutes starting at 10am until 3:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The farm is closed on Tuesdays. Our first day for Christmas trees is Saturday, November 27th, 2021. If you do not see a specific time slot in the reservation system during our regular hours, that means that that time slot is full. You should either select a different time slot or check back later to see if any changes were made.
How will Wilkens know I made a reservation?
Please print out your reservation confirmation email or have it available on your phone when you come to the farm. You need the number and name of the reservation. Your entire party will need to be together when you check-in to head out into the Christmas tree fields. We will confirm your reservation there prior to entering the field.
How do I make a reservation?
Click on the link above to make your reservation. The reservation payment will be collected at that time. If you do not see a link at this time, it will be live starting Wednesday, November 10th, 2021.
What if I need to cancel my reservation?
Any cancellations prior to “48 hours in advance” of your reservation will be eligible for a refund. Any cancellations after “48 hours in advance” of the reservation time will not be eligible for a refund.
What if I need to change my reservation?
You are able to change your reservation up until 48 hours prior to your time slot. You need to log back into the reservation site to do so and select an available time slot. Information will be provided in your confirmation email on how to make that change. You will be able to use your credit from the prior reservation time for the new reservation time.
What if I do not find a tree the height or size that I’m looking for?
In the case a desired tree is not found, the $40 deposit can be redeemed at the Farm Market register.
Will you be able to accommodate my special situation since I have a college student that needs to go back to school or I have a sick family member?
While we understand student schedules, at this time we are not able to accommodate someone that may need an earlier reservation that those that are available. If however one of your family members has COVID symptoms, please have them stay home and select a later time slot to come and select/get your tree.
