Santa visited Erickson Bros Tree Farm last Saturday and had so much fun that he decided to return this Saturday, Dec. 2 from 1pm-3pm.  Our new photo booth is a terrific place to take a photo with Santa and your family!  

Children of all ages enjoy watching our model trains!  Challenge yourself or your friends to find all the miniature items on our Train Search!

Our friendly staff will assist you in your search for the perfect tree!  We have lots of precut trees to choose from and as always - you and your family may wander our fields to choose and cut down your own perfect tree!  We will shake the tree to remove any dead needles (free) and then your tree can be netted if you choose ($1.00 fee).  Our staff will gladly help you tie your tree to your vehicle.
