In 1960, the farm was purchased by Asplins Christmas tree farm, where they planted over 10,000 Christmas trees on the property. Some of these trees were never harvested and tours run through the now tall balsam trees. The farm house deteriorated until 1990 when the property was bought by the Freeburgs. Dick Freeburg restored the house and was also awarded a grant to restore the barn in 2005.
Dick continues to grow multiple crops on the property including apples, hops, grapes, pumpkins, Christmas trees and more. A lot of effort is spent making products out of the produce including apple butter, pies, juice, and sauce.
The Christmas tree are planted each Spring and Fall with multiple weeks spent during the mid summer shaping them into the traditional Christmas tree look. Check out the photos below.
