  • I wanted to share some details about how we've gone about starting our Christmas tree farm, and some of the specific costs involved in purchasing the property to start the farm, investing in equipment and improving the property. I also wanted to talk about what we've earned from several different revenue streams during our first year.

We bought the property in November 2018 and have been documenting our whole journey starting this business from the ground up.

    Your never going to run out of things to spend money on. I do think you are starting out right in doing the events even though it isn't bringing in a lot of money. I know your goal is to have people come back every year. It takes a lot of time and effort to get to where you are going to break even. Overall I think you are doing a great job of going in the right direction. It's not a get rich quick kind of business and as you have already learned not all the profit is in the form of cash. Keep up the great work guys.

    Sounds like you had a successful first year. You are absolutely doing the right thing selling pre-cut trees now. You will hit the ground running when your own trees are ready to harvest. The Christmas Tree business is a marathon, not a sprint. It looks like your family really enjoys it as well. That is vital to your success. We had a tough year here. Every weekend was bad weather along with a shorter selling season. They can't all be record breakers.

    Hi Phil. Thanks for more great insight. I'm in the beginning stages of starting my own tree farm, and you're videos on subsoiling and planting plugs has been a huge help. You answered a lot of questions and gave ideas that other tree farmers I've talked to weren't able to answer.
