Thank you to everyone who came by and picked out a tree in 2015!
Pine View Farm was so named when the Steidle family purchased the farm in 1908. The farm consists of rolling fields, wetlands and wooded areas separated by stone walls. The farm includes a historic house and barn that were constructed around 1870. The adjoining farmland also contains historic homes of distinction.
In 1985, the third generation of the Steidle family began planting Christmas trees as a way of helping to fund future college educations for the children. Today approximately 10,000 Christmas trees are planted on the farm and adjoining leased property. Species grown include: Balsam fir, Canaan fir, Concolor fir, Douglas fir, Fraser fir, Blue spruce, Meyer spruce, White spruce and White pine.
We are very much dedicated to protecting the environment. Towards that end, we have entered into a conservation easement with the Orange County Land Trust that protects the farm in perpetuity. We have also recently constructed a wildlife marsh to enhance habitat diversity on the farm.
We make every effort to maintain the farm for the enjoyment and education of our visitors. We welcome any comments and questions that you may have. We may be reached by telephone at (845) 564-4111 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
