Merry, soon to be, Christmas from The Bertolon Family!
Yes, it’s that time of year, with Christmas soon upon us! We’ve been busy tending the farm and we have a great selection of beautiful trees, ranging from 6 to 10 feet tall, that will be available for the 2014 season.
We will be open from 9AM-3PM on November 28, 29 and 30, and December 6 and 7th, provided supplies last.
Our heartfelt gratitude for your participation in last year’s sold out season, allowing us to provide Direct Relief with a $25,000 donation to assist Philippine victims in recovering from Super Typhoon Haiyan.

Welcome to the Beverly Tree Farm. Our farm is located in North Beverly on 27 acres of flat, fertile soil and is bordered by the Longham Reservoir and the Wenham Woods. We purchased the farm from the Johnson Family in 1999.
For over 30 years this farm was operated by the Johnson Family as a choose and cut Christmas tree farm. By the late 90′s, the farm had been long in decline, and when we purchased the property in 1999, the only trees that remained were too big to sell. At that time, we did not have specific plans for the land except that we wanted to preserve the beautiful open space as long as we could.
Needless to say, we planted our first 1,500 trees in 2000, and over the next nine years we continued clearing land, laying out rows, and planting trees. We are now in our fourth year of operation and have over 14,000 trees in various stages of growth.
We offer Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir, and some Concolors. All our trees are shaped and sheared, are regularly cared for, and take 6-12 years to reach maturity, eventually becoming one of the trees you select for your home.
There is plenty of parking onsite. After you check in at the barn to obtain your tag, take a walk out to the open field to select your tree. After you cut down your tree with the saw we provide (or bring your own…no chain saws please!), drag it to the end of the row and our trailer will pick up your tree and bring it back to the baling station, where we will wrap it for travel. While we bale your tree, take your tag to the cashier in the barn and warm up. Enjoy our fire and have some hot cocoa or cider. When you are ready to go, drive up to the loading area and retrieve your tree. We provide twine which you can then use to secure the tree to your car (unfortunately for liability reasons, we cannot assist in this process).
Christmas is certainly a special time for our family and we have wonderful memories of spending an afternoon choosing and cutting OUR special tree. We hope you will come make your own memories with us this holiday season.
Our very best wishes for a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and a prosperous 2014!
