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" or "The Deer Field".   You might consider trying Ontario's provincial tree, the White Pine .  The light green foliage, shown below on the left, is known for excellent needle retention. A good choice if you are harvesting a tree early in the season.
|Update as of Dec 15th 2014.......We have many spruce avaliable up to the 6 foot range however the 7 and 8 foot range and higher is no longer plentiful. 

  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.

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


 


 "PreCut Fraser Firs". 

These are quality trees, all individually displayed and priced .   This has been a very popular addition to our farm.

Update Dec 16th 2014  10:50 pm....... The precut lot is down to about 6 trees.
