Whether you want to cut your own tree, pick a live tree and have it cut for you, buy a tree already cut or buy a living tree you can plant, this page provides detailed listings of Northwest-central Kansas's
choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms, places to buy pre-cut (also called pre-harvested and fresh-cut) trees, stands, sleigh rides,
hay rides and related winter events and fun. Some listings are for tree farms, others are tree lots, and some only offer hay rides, sleigh rides or other winter events. READ EACH LISTING to know what each facility offers. The farms are listed further down this page, so scroll down the page! Since this service is free and open to ALL Christmas tree farms, not just those who belong to an association or pay for an ad, like almost all other websites do, this is the most complete and current listing available! I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any,
please email me!
- If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
- ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours
and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.
All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For

and successful, click here!
DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM BY PHONE OR EMAIL!
- The dates indicate when I last received an update, no date means it may
be years old!
- And please tell the farmer you visit in Northwest-central Kansas that you found their farm
here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!

A visitor writes on October 02,
2014: "Stumbled across this little gem on our way across Kansas.
What a wonderful surprise. Was expecting "just a pumpkin patch" only
to discover so much more! Definitely worth the trip! Will be making
this a yearly destination."
A visitor writes on October 22,
2009: "Simply can't say enough. Breathtaking. Thought pumpkin
patches were only for people with children. We have no children but
went and spent the day walking around and setting by the fire.
Lovely gift shop, Neat old time candy store. Try the hot cider!
A visitor writes on October 01,
2009: "I visited Granny Mae's with my family last weekend for
the first time. Was so amazed to see such an incredible place tucked
away in Rural Russell County. The people there so warm and
welcoming. The sights, sounds, and wonderful smells are incredible.
So much for to enjoy. It was like stepping back in time to a more
peaceful time. "
A visitor writes on September
30, 2009: "Absolutely the neatest place I have ever taken my
family to. Very warm and welcoming and we spent the entire day. Felt
like we were in Branson! Musicians were terrific. So much for the
kids to see and do. They hand roast peanuts by the fire and offer
them free. Kids love the haunted forest! Love it! Love it! Love it!
I can't say enough. Wholeheartedly recommend it! "
A visitor writes on September 08, 2008: "Awesome. Step back into the old
days, relax around the fire and make smores. I can't say enough about this
place. It just puts you in the mood. The best in Ellis County."
