Humming Grove Farm

Welcome to Humming Grove Farm

Christmas trees, premium wreaths, honey, beeswax candles, fruits, vegetables, and gourmet mushrooms

CLOSED after Nov. 28, except for customers who have already tagged trees and those interested in the few remaining trees over 16 feet tall.

We had another spectacular Christmas tree sales season!   I would like to thank all of our customers, who made selling Christmas trees a wonderful experience, and hope that you will return in 2022. 

Because we had so many trees harvested in 2020, we have decided to close early this year (at the end of the sales day on November 28).  For those who have already tagged trees, and for customers looking for very large trees (over 16 feet tall), please call ahead and I shall still be able to help you during our regular business hours (Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.).  

We sell choose-and-cut and a limited number of pre-cut Christmas trees, wreaths, handmade ornaments,  beeswax candles, and gourmet Connecticut honey.

Species we grow are white spruce, balsam fir, Fraser fir, Douglas-fir, Colorado blue spruce, and concolor fir.  There are many other species growing that won’t be ready for harvest for 2 – 3 years.  We probably 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.

Height up to to 22 feet tall.  Our prices are $55 for trees under 12 feet tall, $100 for trees between 12 and 16 feet tall, and $150 for trees over 16 feet tall.  Table-top sized trees are $10 per foot of height.  There are specially discounted trees that are only suitable for displaying against a wall or in a corner location.  We are proud that some of our big trees have been prominently displayed: in 2019 one at Mystic Aquarium, and one at the Knights of Columbus headquarters in New Haven.

We do have saws, but will gladly cut your tree for you!

Hours:

Tagging starts on weekends after Halloween.  Tree harvest starts the Friday after Thanksgiving

Tree harvest November through December 12: Fridays and Saturdays 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sundays 1 – 4 p.m.

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.
