The Experience

There is nothing quite like feeling the cool air on your cheeks on a crisp winter day as you venture out in search of the “perfect” tree. Your family will look forward to that moment when you find “the one” every year. We provide the saw for you to cut down your own tree and the tractor/trailer to bring you and your tree back to the lodge to enjoy hot drinks and holiday treats. While you’re here, enjoy the beautiful scenery, shopping for holiday crafts and Christmas wreaths. Pet the animals in the pen and don’t forget to stop and see Santa!

What to Bring

A festive spirit, your family, a picture taking apparatus, a joyful heart, clothing to match the weather and a truck to haul or car to tie your perfect tree to. We’ll provide the trees, saws, twine, fun and Christmas Spirit.


Follow us on Facebook to see what it takes to grow the perfect tree throughout the year. We dedicate hours and hours in planting, grooming and caring for each tree so YOU have the best experience possible. Thanks for being a part of the Riverview Tree Farm family!

Before You Get Here

Tip 1: Dress appropriately for the weather. We are an active farm so plan for mud, uneven ground and cool temperatures.
Tip 2: Don’t be like Clark Griswold. Measure your space BEFORE cutting down a tree.
Tip 3: Get to the farm early for the best selection!
