Our Family

Ed McArdle the one who got us into loving growing Christmas Trees

In the early 1960’s, Ed and Jane McArdle bought a farm in Bucks County. Their new farm was already planted with 1000 evergreen trees - few were of saleable Christmas Tree size. Without any advertisement in those early years, families showed up to buy a Christmas Tree. More people came as more trees reached saleable size and so their Christmas Tree farm and business grew. From 1997 - 2014 two of Ed and Jane’s children, Michael & Erin, operated the Christmas Tree business. Today, the farm is owned & operated by Mike & Karen McArdle and their four children.  The farm is also diversified  - raising beef cattle, sheep and pigs.  For more information about ordering farm raised beef, lamb and pork please contact Karen McArdle at kmcardle4316@gmail.com.

Owner's Children love to work and play at the farm. The kids help mostly in the spring, at planting time, and during Christmas Tree sales time in December.

Of course our farm would not be nearly as successful without our trusty helpers that come back year after year to help us sell trees.
