We are making some changes for 2021 due to problems over the past few years.Problem 1: Incidents with pets. Solution: NO PETS ON FARM IN 2021.
Problem 2: Overcrowding on Thanksgiving weekend creating long lines, delays,and dangerous road conditions.
Solution: We need to control attendance on Thanksgiving weekend. We have decided we will convert to a PRE-TAG and CUT FARM this season. In other words, if you want to cut a tree on the farm in 2021 you must come and pre-tag in October or early November. When you tag your tree(s), you will pick the day you will return to cut your tree. There will be a limited number of slots each day we are open for cutting. For more detailed information click on the Pre-tag and Cut Farm section.
There will be a selection of pre-cut Frasers from North Carolina for anyone that does not pre-tag. Major
Changes for 2021
Due to the shortage of Choose & Cut trees in the region, we are encouraging more folks to start tree farms. You can contact us if you want to discuss.
Moose Apple worked with an Amish Craftsman near Lancaster to create the Topiaries below. They come in 3 sizes: 2, 3, and 4 foot. They are available with or without lights. We have a limited number of each size, so check them out soon. If you want to pre-order pre-lit topiaries, send us an email with your name, phone number, and the number and size of topiaries you want. Also include the date you will probably want to pick them up.
Check out the Wine bottle and Wine glass display created by our Amish friends in Lancaster, PA. It would make a great gift for your wine enthusiast friends. This will likely be a popular item. Let us know how many you would like soon(preferably in September), and we will try and make sure we have enough in stock.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the farm again this year.

Our Farm is located in the scenic Shenandoah Valley, west of the Blue Ridge Mountain, just 60 minutes west of Washington DC. Picnic or tailgate with family & friends and enjoy breath taking views of Shenandoah farms & the mountains.
Our log home with wrap-around-porch, log barn, and many other scenic vistas offer great backdrops for family photos. In 2012 we added an antique horse drawn Amish sleigh for photo ops. It was a big hit and you may want to consider it for your Christmas cards.
In addition to having seven species & thousands of trees to choose from, we have a wide selection of sizes & varieties of wreaths made right here on the farm. Freshly made pine roping & fraser fir roping is also available. We will also offer cut Fraser Firs from Southern Virginia for 2018.
Our Gift Shop features handmade Halloween, Autumn, & Christmas decor, tree ornaments, & custom designed hand tooled Christmas tree stands (strong as a moose & built to handle trees to 20 ft tall). Many new crafts, including Stained Glass items (see photo album).
