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.Read More

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.Read More
