Frequently Asked Questions
Click for answers to some of our most common questions about our trees and our tree farm!
How do I keep my tree fresh once it gets home?
Make a fresh cut on the bottom of the tree after you get it home. Use a stand that holds liquid and make sure there is always water in it. A commercial tree preservative, which can be purchased in our gift shop, will help keep the needles where they belong: on the tree!
How are trees grown at Hog Hollow Farm?
We plant up to 1,600 seedlings each year, and it takes approximately 7 years for each seedling to grow into a 6-foot tree.
Are there other activities at Hog Hollow Farm?
Yes! There is a scenic hay ride in to the farm (with warm blankets provided, if necessary). We have a gift shop every year that includes gifts, tree care and disposal items and decorations. There is always a bonfire going for roasting marshmallows and warming hands. A new addition to the farm is a gentle sledding hill for kids from age 0-90 (snow permitting). Our guests are always offered free hot coffee, hot chocolate and candy canes.
How do we get our tree home?
The friendly staff at Hog Hollow Farm will transport your tree to the car and load it up and tie it down. We have all the supplies needed to make sure your tree makes it home with you.
Do we cut our own tree?
We will provide hand saws if you want to cut your own tree. If that doesn't appeal to you, give us a holler and we'll cut it down with a chainsaw for you!
Do you have other Christmas items?
You betcha! In addition to trees we also have decorated and plain wreaths, swags and a variety of Christmas decorations.
