Christmas 2017

As we enter the weekend of December 16-17 our selection of white pines in the 6 foot range is still good and we will have some pre-cut taller spruce trees from adjacent family farms.  We accept credit and debit cards.

This is our 33rd year of sales, and over that time we have made many friends.  We look forward to renewing these friendships and to making many new ones this holiday season.

HOURS: Fri.-Sun. 9 to 5; Tues-Thurs 1-5

Closed Monday

We have a good selection of hand-sheared White Pines and Norway Spruces. We will also have taller, pre-cut, individually priced Spruces grown by our children on their neighboring farms. All of our trees are grown without pesticides or herbicides.

Our White Pines are priced at $50, and the Spruces are $55.

We provide free netting and tying-on for easy transport home.

We accept checks, cash and credit/debit cards


Our building will be warm and full of a variety of hand-crafted gifts. Please bring young and old for a family outing, and remember to wear sturdy shoes and warm clothing. We will have bunnies to hold and turkeys to visit, and refreshments including cider, cookies and juice.

Items we will have for sale include:

About our Farm

Christmas trees are our main product at Oak Shade Farm but you will also see a mushroom log operation and a market garden. On adjacent farms our family members raise laying hens, sheep, rabbits, pigs, bees and more extensive market gardens. Many of us enjoy various arts and crafts activities including: oil painting, rug hooking, iron work, weaving and woodworking. You will see our work displayed in the sales building. Visit our website at: for more information

When you visit we hope you will enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Blue Ridge Mountains and perhaps take an easy walk along the path that loops through the woods. We invite you to enjoy the bonfire we maintain whenever weather permits. In the sales building you will see some of the artifacts we have found around the farm. Many of these came from an old homestead that was located near a majestic oak which stands beside the walking path.

We are a small but many-faceted farm with lots to see and do. Bundle up, bring your family and come out to see us sometime this holiday season.
