The 200-acre farm is located in New Canada, Maine and was originally established in 1979. The Voisines produce roughly 7,000 Christmas trees there annually. They’ve found customers prefer Fraser Firs for their thick and sturdy needles or Balsams for their traditional look and evergreen smell. Along with the trees, they also create holiday wreaths and garland for families in the area.
“I’ve known Ben and Joe since they were young,” says Milton Cat Sales Representative Don Labrie. “To witness and be part of their success is wonderful. The Allagash View Farm is a fantastic addition to their business as well as this region of Maine.”
To grow the ideal Christmas tree takes roughly ten years. Harvest season begins each year in early November when Maine is realizing the first signs of winter. It’s cold, damp and cloudy, but the tall pines and bright green branches create a breathtaking view.
“To know my family is part of other families’ holiday traditions is incredible.” Ben adds, “We get emails from our customers telling us how happy they are with their tree and sharing pictures of it decorated. It is a big deal, and we’re grateful to be part of it.”
Take a moment to enjoy the hard work that goes into creating the holiday season’s focal point.
