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.
