Chestnut Mountain Christmas Tree Farm is a family owned, 130 acre farm located on an upland plain above the Connecticut River in North Hatfield and Whately, Mass.
Dedicated to the sustainable production of forest and agricultural products, the entire property is protected by a conservation restriction, keeping the property in forestry in perpetuity. Historically known as Swift Plantation, the farm produced shade tobacco on 75 open acres. Over the past 40 years Christmas trees have been grown. A new crop of 3000 trees has been planted annually since 2011, adding to the existing inventory of taller, older trees.
Tall Christmas trees are our specialty, with Fraser and Balsam trees up to 40 feet tall available. Good quality hay is also produced and sold through the year.
Family owned and operated by Robert and Jake Schrader.
