Evergreen Season

November 24, 2015

When the sun is low and the foliage falls, the greens and blues of spruce and fir are a welcome sight. And that means wreath season!  Made with fresh ingredients and unique materials, each is a unique expression of the season.

Bring Home More of the Farm!

November 23, 2015

IMG_0476In the lead up to our opening day on November 27th we have been hard at work hand making a variety of holiday wall baskets, porch pots and table arrangements.  We match unique baskets and containers with the freshest materials so you can deck the halls with the sights and smells of the season.

Unlike the big retail outlets, our arrangements don’t arrive on a semi truck.  We harvest the majority of our materials from the farm and carefully source the rest.  Using fraser fir, fresh cut winterberry, cedar, juniper and pine – we make each arrangement to be like taking a walk on the farm.

Kinda Blue

September 18, 2015

Actually – the blue spruce this year are really blue – practically glowing blue!  But it was too good to pass up a Miles Davis reference 😉  For 2015, we have an abundance of Colorado blue spruce that are anywhere from 6 – 10 feet tall.  They hold their needles well, you can practically hang lead weights from their branches and they really know how to light up a room.  We’ve been kicking ourselves for not entering one in the Big – E this year for judging, but then again, it only means there there’s a chance it will be there for you when you come by this December!

Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2014

Our thanks go to all the families that made this year memorable. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the year is getting to know our customers as friends, neighbors and family. We appreciate the community of great people that share their tradition with us!

And here’s to all the generous hot chocolate sippers out there that helped us reach our goal of over $700 dollars for Doctors Without Borders – What a feat! Thank you all so much, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas Eve at Maple Hollow Farm

December 24, 2014

Our white Christmas came a week earlier than we would have liked but that has not stopped the hardy families that keep their Christmas Eve traditions alive.  Thank you all so much for a wonderful season! Merry Christmas!Maple Hollow Farm in Snow

CT Grown Pre-Cut Christmas TreesThe sun is finally shining!  We have a great selection of beautiful pre-cut balsam fir grown right here in Connecticut.  Some trees are over ten feet and have been growing for over 15 years!  And with the snow melted our selection of cut your own Christmas trees are looking great.  Still plenty to choose from!  Hope to see you soon!

Maple Hollow Farm Christmas ShopWe’re looking forward to a great first weekend of December!  This year the Christmas Shop is packed with hard to find ornaments and decorations. And just outside the doors, we have a fresh selection of our own handmade wreaths and Holiday greenery arrangements.

Maple Hollow Farm’s popular hostess baskets are also back, each featuring local products and a variety of themes.  The baskets come in a variety of sizes, are wrapped in clear plastic for transport and decorated with a bow to bring it all together.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2014

We hope everyone is enjoying a great day with their family!  Thank you all so much for keeping tradition alive with us this year.  We cannot wait to see you!  Here are few updates for the weekend’s Christmas tree cutting:

  • We have a beautiful selection of fir and spruce trees in several varieties.  And the blue spruce have kept their namesake color perfectly this year!
  • A fresh selection of Connecticut-cut Balsam Fir have just arrived, only days from their original cutting.  Some of them are nearing 11 feet for those looking for a room filler. It is nearly impossible to find pre-cut trees this fresh anywhere!
  • Our selection of handmade wreaths and decorative arrangements are being crafted entirely by us this year!  We’ve harvested winterberry, pine, spruce, and fir to create locally sourced wreaths and decor with an old world feel.

Sounds more and more like it’s going to be a white Thanksgiving!  Every year more families join us for the day after Thanksgiving tradition of cutting their own Christmas tree. With the Nor’easter hype building, we will be sure to have extra hot chocolate on hand for Friday.   Once you get a warm drink, you can peruse our handmade selection of wreaths and holiday decorative arrangements created with materials grown right here on the farm.  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!
