As second generation owners, Jim Nickelson and Nancy Pakulak continue the tradition of the family owned and operated farm. Their father, Bill Nickelson, started the business in 1956 when he purchased an existing farm that was planted to Scotch pine. He took great interest in the business. After years of dairy farming, he sold the dairy herd and went into full-time production of Christmas trees.

Jim Nickelson, along with Nancy's husband, Jimmy Pakulak, continue to grow the fine quality nursery stock our customers have come to expect.  Anticipating the changing needs of the Christmas tree and landscape industries, conservation districts, and private landowners, the business continues to evolve to meet these changing needs.

Our location slightly inland from Lake Michigan gives us ideal conditions to grow nursery stock. Our moderate snow pack helps protect the fragile young plants from extreme cold and the damaging effect of winterburn.

Maintaining soil texture has helped us sustain the quality of plants that we have today. We are still growing quality seedlings and transplants on the same soil that was planted in 1957. Our soil is a rich, sandy loam that has been carefully maintained through time tested practices of fallow, rotation and enrichment. With the use of green manures and compost manures, we ensure soil stability that continues to product top quality nursery stock with every harvest.
