Looking for a fresh-cut Christmas Tree right here on the Old Mission Peninsula? Switz.R.Land Evergreen Tree Farm will be open this year, but only for a short while.
Owners Don and Barb Switzer report that they’ll be open for Christmas Tree sales from Friday, Nov. 26, through Sunday, Dec. 5. That’s just a little over a week to get your tree, so put that on your schedule!
Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

They offer trees of all sizes, spruce or balsam fir, ready for cutting, fresh from the field. The trees are $5 per foot, and you can select your own tree. Don will cut it with his trusty chainsaw and haul it back to your car in a little sled.
Established in 1995, Switz.R.Land Evergreen Tree Farm is located at 19362 Center Road, on the right between Swaney Road and Tompkins Road as you’re heading out towards the lighthouse. They’re next to the new Fire Station 3.
To arrange a time to stop by and pick out your tree, give Don a call at (269) 491-0529.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
