The Nelson's Tree Farm Story

The first Christmas trees were planted 53 years ago in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. In the beginning and for many years thereafter we only sold trees wholesale. In 1974 the trees in the apple orchard were planted. Once the apple orchard was in production, we brought down trees to sell pre-cut at the farm. In the early 1990s we planted the first Christmas trees in the field to the south of the third field of apple trees. We expanded to being a choose 'n cut destination as the trees matured to the best height. For many seasons we had a hut to check in and check out at near the trees. The business grew and the apple gift store became the place to gather. Today we are proud to continue to be a Christmas tree farm destination that offers all an opportunity to enjoy the Christmas season and make lasting memories.
