9 Best Christmas Tree Farms in Minnesota!

When the holidays roll around and it’s time to pick out a tree, it’s just more festive to head out and cut your own Christmas tree than to throw one on top of the car at a supermarket. From Fraser fir, to Norway pine, to blue spruce, in Minnesota, we’re fortunate to have many fine Christmas tree farms. Here are our favorites.

Hinkemeyer Tree Farm, Rice, MN

Hinkemeyer Tree Farm has been a holiday tradition in Rice, Minnesota, for nearly 50 years. Choose and cut your own family’s Christmas tree, browse the wreath selection, and dash through the snow on a horse-drawn sleigh. Then you can warm up around the bonfire with toasted marshmallows and s’mores.

Chub Lake Tree Farm, Carlton, MN

Folks in the Northland can cut their own Christmas trees at Chub Lake Tree Farm near Carlton. They specialize in northern balsam fir trees, which retain their color and needles for a long time after experiencing a freeze in the Minnesota winter. Grab a wreath and enjoy a cookie and cup of cider while you search for the perfect tree.

Happy Land Tree Farms, Sandstone, MN

If you’re persnickety about your Christmas tree, you’re likely to find a prime specimen at Happy Land Tree Farms: Their Christmas trees have won Grand Champion at the Minnesota State Fair multiple times. Hike or cross-country ski the farm to find the perfect tree. Enjoy coffee, cider, or a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Then warm up in the gift shop or next to the bon fire.

Goldenman Christmas Trees, Zimmerman, MN

Goldenman Christmas Trees have also won multiple kudos at the Minnesota State Fair. But they’re as serious about holiday fun as they are about growing top-quality Christmas trees. Go for a hayride then stop into the gift shop to browse or to grab a snack.
