Over 60 years ago the first Christmas Trees of this farm were planted by the Althouse Family. The first plantings were started in 1956. At that time, Scotch Pine was the tree of choice. Charles and Robert Althouse sold Christmas Trees in front of the now restored Barn 54 years ago. Charles continued to raise Christmas trees as did Robert and eventually Earl. As the years passed, Charles grew the farm into a full time business known as Althouse Nursery. Until the opening of the Cobblestone Farms Barn in 2006 the tree business was conducted from the Charles and Martha Althouse residence on Witmer Road.

We offer the service of letting you tag your own tree in our fields. You simply follow the instructions of putting your name on a tag with a marker and attach it securely to your chosen tree. Then, fill out an information card and let that card in the tagging box located at field site. We retrieve cards daily and keep a record of when you want your tree. When you are ready for your tree, we will have the tree cut, drilled, netted and waiting for you to pick up. This service has been provided for over 30 years through Althouse Nursery now operating as Cobblestone Farms.
