♦ Both the Grass Lake and Brooklyn farms are currently open for tree cutting 9am-5pm every day.
♦ If you would like to cut your own Douglas Fir or Spruce at the Grass Lake location, please go to our new lot on East Michigan Avenue just outside of Grass Lake (13671 E. Michigan Ave.). This is only open on the weekends (Dec. 3, 4, 10, and 11). During the week, please come to the main farm (3512 Notten Rd.).
♦ If you would like to cut your own Fraser Fir taller than 7 feet, please go to the Brooklyn location where there is a larger selection. The Grass Lake location still has a nice selection of taller pre-cut Fraser Fir.
♦ There will be horse-drawn wagon rides at the Grass Lake and Brooklyn locations starting Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 25, 26, 27) and the following two weekends (Dec. 3, 4 and Dec. 10, 11). Keep in mind that this is weather permitting.
♦ The Salem Grove Church next to the Grass Lake farm will be selling refreshments and holiday crafts Nov. 25th, 26th, and 27th and Dec. 3rd (10:30-4:30), 4th (1:00-4:30), and 10th (10:30-4:30).
You have reached one of the oldest and largest tree farms in Southern Michigan. We started in the 1930’s and are still going strong with two locations:
Getting out into the country and harvesting a fresh cut tree is a holiday tradition for many families, and providing this experience has become a full-time business for us. We strive to find ways to make your visit to the Arend Tree Farms as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
Through the years, we have changed the types of trees we grow to meet public demands. Scotch Pine used to be the most popular tree in the 60’s and 70’s, but Fraser and Douglas Fir seem to be today’s favorites. Even though fir trees are the top-sellers, we try to make every species available. In addition to cut-your-own, pre-cut trees are available in a range of sizes with some priced as low as five dollars for the budget minded. We also provide the newest innovations of the industry to our customers:
A special attraction on weekends is the horse-drawn wagon rides. Draft horses pull wagons full of customers out to the cutting areas. These are extremely well trained and hardworking horses that provide a memorable ride for children and adults as well.
Another attraction is the 150 year-old country church that is adjacent to the Grass Lake farm. Many families make it part of their holiday tradition to stop by the church for homemade doughnuts and cider or to purchase unique Christmas craft items. Our main objective is to provide a friendly and unique holiday memory for your whole family. We look forward to seeing you.
