News for 2012 Christmas Tree Season at Potash Creek Farms

There is much going on at Potash Creek Farms to get ready for this year's Christmas tree season. If you're visiting us again this year, you'll notice some big changes! Whether you are returning, or if this is your first visit, we hope the enhancements will make for a fun and memorable family experience!

The first thing you'll notice when you arrive is the widened, gently sloping driveway leading to the parking lot. Now you can park closer to the tree field and with one less big hill to scale, it’s much easier to get your tree to your vehicle.

We are also introducing the “Cozy Shack”, an indoor shelter and gift store with seating and a washroom. A nice place to catch your breath and warm up with a hot cocoa or mulled apple cider after harvesting your tree.

Close to the Cozy Shack is our big black cauldron, warming water for your complimentary hot cocoa on an open fire! Take a seat by the fire or head into the shelter and enjoy what we have to offer.

Remember to pre-order your handmade Christmas Wreath and avoid disappointment as we'll only have a limited supply on hand ;) Contact us for ordering.

Please note, at this time, we accept cash only.

Hey, why not vote in our poll on the right of the page while you're here!

Looking forward to seeing you this year!
Dan and Heidi
