Rinas Christmas Trees

519 621-1438

As you enter our farm you are driving down one of the Westover Drumlins left by the glaciers some 15,000 years ago. The thin soils over the dolomitic limestone have proven unsuitable for ploughing but ideal for growing trees. We used to have beef and dairy cattle.  Then in 1979 we started planting Christmas Trees.

The farm is located near the village of Rockton on a quiet rural road. For a great family outing one can harvest a tree from one of seven different fields of trees.
We grow mainly spruce and pine.  Our Scotch Pine selection is good this year, with a full range of sizes. Need a large pine ?  Just ask any of our helpers for direction to a field called "The Far Side".   You might consider trying Ontario's provincial tree, the White Pine .  The light green foliage, shown below on the left, is known for good needle retention.  As of Dec 13th we still have lots of spruce in the 6 foot range however in the 8 to 9 foot range it is getting harder to find a tree.

  On weekends we have a hay wagon that is constantly making its way around to the edge of each field. You can bring your tree back to your car using this wagon or just go along for the ride.  

 

We also have Ruth's Warm-up Shelter where on weekends, hot cider is available.

 Claxton Fruit Cakes are also sold in support of the projects of Dundas Civitan Club.

 

Heinz The Reindeer Maker

Hilltop Blooms is also in the area.   Be sure to check them out.


 


 "PreCut Fraser Firs". 

These are quality trees and are all individually displayed and now sale priced at $20.00.   This has been a very popular addition to our farm.

We have a good selection of Scots and White Pine this season.

Spruce is by far the most numerous variety on our farm.  Colorado Blue Spruce, Norway and White Spruce however please note that the 8 to 10 foot range is not available.

We are open everyday of the week, from Nov. 23th to Dec. 24th,              9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m..

Spruce, Pine and Fir (any size, cut your own)........$36.00 HST included

Please note:  We do not have the setup for Debit cards.

We have tapered drill tree stands and the drill required for anyone that has this type of tree stand.

The selection of Fir (cut your own) is limited.  The tall Fir we have in the fields  tend to have issues with the bottom part of the tree,  but the tops can make good christmas trees.
