  1. HI This is Tammy Westman, Westman’s Christmas Tree Farm. If we could update our ad. We have a gift shop that offers hot chocolate, hot cider, fresh donuts from Dexter Bakery and girl scout cookies. We have a large variety of wreaths including hard to get large wreaths 24-30 inches.

  2. Can you tell me if Brauns Tree farm has closed permanently? I tried email and phone The phone is disconnected and the email wouldn’t go through Would like to know before I travel there for my tree this year.

  3. Their website is still up, so I tried calling and emailing and had the same experience. My guess is they are not open, and suggest looking at the list for another farm for this year. If I get a chance I will drive by to see if it looks like they are open. But if they deleted a yahoo email, my guess is they have closed.

  4. Braun’s is open! They are open Friday-Sun 10am to dark (5pm). Last I knew they priced their trees at $10/ft. (I got all this info when driving by their signs posted and I can see the very busy parking lot from my house!)
