We planted our first seedlings in 1981 and harvested the first Christmas trees in 1988. Over the past 25 years we have enjoyed growing and renewing friendships with families who choose their Christmas trees and wreaths from our farm. We invite you to come visit Kruse Christmas Farm and make a new memory with your family by selecting a fresh and fragrant real Christmas tree grown for you in Grundy County.
Within the tree plantation you will find white pine (with the longer, softer needles), Scotch pine (Iowa’s traditional and favorite shorter-needle tree), Canaan fir and Concolor fir (softer needles and more open trees). The trees are priced between $25 and $55.
Because of increasing demand for real Christmas trees, we also offer pre-cut premium
6- to -8-foot Fraser firs from Michigan. These trees will be displayed in rows in our shed for easy selection in the largest indoor forest in Grundy County! We also have 3- to 4-foot tabletop trees ideal for your real Christmas tree enjoyment in small spaces.
Also at the farm we offer Christmas tree stands, wreath hangers and easels, as well as wreaths, swags, and centerpieces, all freshly made by Liz.Click the "wreath" button above for all the details, including pictures of wreaths and swags Liz has made.
From Grundy Center, the farm is located 2 miles north, 3 miles east and 1 mile north on
Q Avenue. From Reinbeck, go north to 215th St., then west to Q Avenue. If you come from the north, the farm is 1 1/2 miles south of the Orchard Hill Lincoln Center Church.
For updates, visit (and “Like!”) us on Facebook at Kruse Christmas Farm. We look forward to seeing you soon. Meantime, we wish you a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday.
