Humming Grove Farm

Welcome to Humming Grove Farm

We have SOLD OUT of quality Christmas trees, and are closed for the season.  Merry Christmas to all!

Christmas trees, premium wreaths, bees’ wax candles, earrings, fruits, vegetables, and gourmet mushrooms.

We sell choose-and-cut Christmas trees, wreaths, beeswax candles, and earrings made with the most beautiful beetle in North America, the dogbane beetle, which we grow on the farm. 

Species we grow are Austrian pine, balsam fir, Canaan fir, Colorado blue spruce, concolor fir, Fraser fir, Korean fir, Korean x corkbark hybrid firs, Norway spruce, white pine, and white spruce.  Another up-and-coming species starting sale in 2024 is Korean x balsam hybrid fir.  Other species that will take a few more years are balsam x Veitch fir, Nordmann fir, Serbian spruce, and Turkish fir.  We may have a greater variety of species than any other Christmas tree farm in New England.  Visit the farm to learn about these other unusual trees.

Our price is $65 for full-sized trees.  Table-top sized trees are $55.  The reason there isn’t a larger price break is that well-formed small trees can take as long to grow as the larger trees.  There are a few trees with aesthetic defects that will be individually tagged with lower prices.

We do have saws, but we prefer to cut your tree for you (we have irrigation tubing that we don’t want customers to cut)!  If you bring your own chain saw, you are not allowed to use it on our farm until after Rich does a safety check on your equipment. 

We can bale many trees.  Trees that are too fat to fit through the baler can be baled by hand.  That requires “audience participation” because it requires 2 – 3 people to help roll the tree and feed the twine to the baling crew.  

We can help place trees on top of vehicles, but you may help by passing rope through the interior cabin of your vehicle. We charge $5 for sturdy cord to secure your tree, if you do not bring your own.


Tree harvest starts the Friday after Thanksgiving; unlike previous years, the only Friday we will be open for tree harvest is the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 24.  Otherwise, we are open Saturdays 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Sundays 1 – 4 p.m.  Customers with special needs are welcome to call to arrange an appointment for cutting trees at other times, if needed.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the farm! I love the abstract geometric pattern made by the Christmas trees, the wood chip mulch, and the grassy drive rows.
