ABOUT US

Carl Wahmhoff, Jr and Tommy G, late 1960's

Wahmhoff Farms Nursery is a family-owned and operated Christmas Tree Farm in Michigan. We have been growing and selling quality Christmas trees for over 60 years. Our family business originated in Grand Junction but transitioned to Gobles, which is where we are now located. We are known throughout the industry for producing high quality trees and wreaths. We have won several state competitions, providing us the honor of presenting Christmas trees and wreaths to the Governor of Michigan over the years, and in 2011 we won Reserve Grand Champion at the National Christmas Tree Association, giving us the honor of supplying  the Christmas tree for Vice President Joe Biden of the United States and his family.

The first trees were planted and harvested in the 1950s by Carl Wahmhoff Sr and Carl Wahmhoff Jr, the grandfather and father of the present owners, Dan and Ken Wahmhoff, who bought the farm from their father in 1996, making this a third generation family business. Dan’s and Ken’s brother Tom and sister Betsy, along with Dan’s wife Lorie, all work full time in the business. Fourth generation children have already worked on the farm as well.
We have been retailing Christmas trees in the Kalamazoo area since 1962. There are now several generations of families continuing the Family Tradition of a trip to Wahmhoff Farms to select their perfect Christmas tree for the holidays.

              

Wahmhoff Farms Nursery employs about 20 full-time people year ‘round and about 60-80 seasonal workers.
     

We have several retail locations for Christmas trees and wreaths in the Kalamazoo/Portage area, and our Choose-N-Cut farm is just 15 miles west of Kalamazoo, 1 mile south of Gobles on M-40 Hwy.

                      

Our 150-acre Choose-N-Cut is open 7 days a week from the day after Thanksgiving until just before Christmas. We have free popcorn and tractor-drawn wagon rides every weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and free horse-drawn wagon rides and Santa Claus during the first two weekends after Thanksgiving.
 

Shaking, baling and loading of the trees for our customers are provided on each of our retail lots. We display our pre-cut trees in an upright position using the Answer Stand Display System – it’s like walking through a field of Christmas trees! Other services include free coloring books for the children, a free KLING card Christmas tree preservative, and a chance to win $500.

We manufacture and sell the Answer Stand Christmas Tree stand and the Answer Stand Display System.  It is super easy to use - customers can stand their Christmas tree straight in less than 10 seconds using our stand! Our Answer Stand has been called a "Marriage-Saver" by many of our smiling, return customers!

Our selection of Christmas trees includes Fraser Fir, Canaan Fir, Balsam Fir, Concolor Fir, Korean Fir, Douglas Fir, Colorado Blue Spruce, White Spruce, Norway Spruce, Serbian Spruce, Black Hills Spruce, Scotch Pine, White Pine, Austrian Pine and Red Pine.
We have an extensive Professional Growers/Retailers Supply Catalog business.

 

  • Seedlings & Transplants
  • Balled and Burlapped (B&B) trees for nursery stock
  • Cut Christmas trees for both wholesale and retail 

We ship seedlings and transplants all over the United States and to Canada.
     

We dig 3’-16’+ Balled & Burlapped trees for our landscaping customers. We ship in both the Spring and the Fall, primarily in the Midwest but also to the East Coast and as far west as Colorado.
                                      

During Christmas Tree harvest, we can harvest between 5,000 and 10,000 trees in a single day! Trees are loaded onto semi-trucks, 500-1000 trees per truckload, and shipped all across the country, as far west as Utah; north to Winnipeg, Canada; south to Florida; SW to Texas, NW to Montana, and to the East Coast.
  
                                                            

We hand-make all of our Christmas wreaths and garlands from fresh bough material harvested from our own fields. We produce miles of garland and thousands of wreaths for retail and wholesale customers and for fundraising groups.
