News and Blog
The farm is open 6 days per week, closed on Mondays. Hours are 9am to dusk which is about 4:30pm. We had a very busy day today despite the weather this afternoon and are making more fir wreaths tonight.
I need to mention that the road out to the new West Field of Christmas trees became very rutted and slippery as the day progressed. This resulted in the need to close down the road but not the field. Walking up to the West Field takes about 5 minutes and people were happy to walk up. We had 4 dump truck loads of gravel placed on the road this week and hoped this would not occur. What we did not foresee was that the road would get rutted up at the far end instead of where we dumped all the gravel. This is where we had the most problems today and I must apologize to any person that had a hard time getting thru the road.
We have plenty of fir balsam, blue spruce and concolor firs up to 8 foot tall however the best selection is 5 -7 'tall. All cut your own trees are $35.00 each. The pre-cut trees have been fully stocked this morning and they range in price from 10- 35 dollars. We supply saws, twine, netting and a bough pile. Complimentary hot mulled cider on weekends only. I have many soaps in stock and most of them are unwrapped which is the least expensive way to purchase them and the most sustainable howover, I have wrapped several varieties and they look nice. New this season is our mail order soaps. It is now possible to order soaps thru our website and I will ship them for you.
For payment we accept cash, checks, visa and mastercard.

WARREN FARM CHRISTMAS TREE SEASON 2009
Our 53rd “ Cut Your Own” Christmas Tree Season is about to begin. We have the best selection of 5-9 foot Fir balsam, Blue Spruce and Concolor Fir trees that we have had in quite a few years. We have improved the road to our newest tree patch (west field) and added a parking area. This field is well stocked with balsam fir and blue spruce trees up to 8 ft. Our old patch (back field) has a selection of Concolor fir, Blue Spruce, and Balsam Fir up to 9 ft. Beginning Saturday November 21 we will be open 6 days/week, 9am to dusk. We are closed every Monday and Thanksgiving day. You are welcome to cut your tree beginning 11/21 however the free bow pile and hot mulled cider ( cider on weekends only) won’t start until the day after Thanksgiving, 11/ 27.
Our “Cut Your Own” price is $35.00 per tree. We will also have available “already cut trees” priced from $10 to $35 per tree. Saws, netting and twine are provided.
We have begun making our Christmas Wreaths and expect to have a nice selection of wreaths and door swags. Randy’s wreath designs include Fir Balsam, Mixed Fir, Blue Spruce, and White Pine. Heather is decorating a selection of wreaths and can also handle special requests. This year she is also making fir wreaths wound together with a twig base and rose hips. They have a wild country look and will look great beyond the holidays.
At the farmstand we have local maple syrup in ½ pt, pint, and quart containers, quite a few varieties of potatoes from Heron Pond Farm in South Hampton and everlasting dried flower wreaths. We are well stocked with our own naturally made soaps and will offer them packaged and unpackaged.

If customer demand is high enough and we still have enough produce we would like to be open Wednesday thru Sunday next week too.

Randy picked many tomatoes before the freeze and we will have lots for the farmstand including the last of the cherry tomatoes. We still have 50 tomato plants in the greenhouse that were not affected by the freeze and they have begun producing large ripe tomatoes this past week.
Swiss chard and red and green lettuces are very hardy so they will be on the farmstand along with our hot red ristra peppers. The hot peppers can be purchased either by the pepper for .50 cents or by the plant for $8. They are great to dry and very hot. From Heron Pond Farm we have large red and yellow potatoes as well as red and yellow fingerling potatoes. Also available are Macoun apples and local maple syrup and my handmade soaps.

The late patch of tomatoes has tomatoes blushing up on it and also has fully ripe ones. Mostly, it is the smaller varieties that are ripening the most, however they are great for sauces too as they are nice and meaty.
