Just for Those Who Need a Big Tree

Are you looking for a taller than average tree? We now offer extra tall Balsam Fir trees! We will still stock lots of them in the 6 - 8 foot range but now you can pre-order that hard to find tall one in the 9 - 13 foot range. Order now and pickup at the farm when we open for the season.

It's beautiful on the farm this morning with the freshly fallen snow. The apple cider and hot chocolate are ready to go! These beautiful fresh trees just arrived and are ready for the perfect family to take them home.

Come out to the farm and make it a special day! Only about a 20 minute drive from Peterborough and Lindsay.

Important Announcement from Potash Creek Farms – 2016 Season

We are having an excellent 2016 season so far! We have seen many new and returning customers and it is so great to see everyone having a wonderful time picking out their special tree.

The number of people coming to visit us has doubled just within the first two weeks! We are so grateful to be sharing in your family’s tradition however with so many people coming, we have had to make some important decisions. This weekend December 10 and 11th, 2016 we will be closing one of our main fields for cut your own trees. We will keep our Scotch pine field open for those who are seeking one, but currently, only a few remain. As for our “wild” section we are limiting cut your own trees to those looking for trees greater than 10 feet. For this weekend, we will be bringing in more fresh pre-cut balsam and fraser firs to keep up with the demand for trees this year. These trees will be in the 7 – 9 foot range, sourced locally and cut fresh, with pricing at $6 per foot. We will be closing down the “cut your own” operations following this weekend. If we have any remaining pre-cut trees we will offer those on a first come, first serve basis.

Come and enjoy a walk in the wild spruce tree fields, stretch your legs and take in the great outdoors. The Cozy Shack is open as always and of course, we will be serving hot chocolate and mulled apple cider to enjoy while you warm up by the fire!

We would very much like to thank everyone who chooses Potash Creek Farms for their Christmas tree tradition. All the happy faces and such genuine compliments is what makes it so joyful to bring you the best experience. We will be working hard to keep it growing for the many years and future generations to come.

Happy Holidays!

Opening Weekend!

Can't believe we are already at opening day for the 2016 season! We are really excited to see all the returning families and the new ones that find us!

Keep an eye out for our new sign at Emily Park Rd, (County Rd. #10) and Grassy Rd. It is a green Christmas tree with a red arrow on it. We hope this helps everyone find the right turn.

Also, we are excited to offer some great gift ideas from two local crafters. We will be featuring "Thunder Drum Gourds" from Dale Adamson as well as a wide assortment of knitted and crocheted items from Aileen Foote. These are in addition to our hand made and painted gourd ornaments grown right here on our farm! We have many of the past favorites and some great new designs too.

See you all soon and safe travels!
