About Moffatt's Tree Farm

Moffatt’s Tree Farm is a  4th generation family business located in the beautiful town of Craftsbury, Vermont, which is considered part of the Northeast Kingdom, a region of the state that is still mostly rural and undeveloped.   The land has been in the Moffatt family since the 1930s when it was a working dairy farm, run by Bob and Eila Moffatt.    Their son Jim and his wife, Joan, took over around 1960 and continued to work the land as a dairy farm, but also had a large maple sugaring operation and decided to plant a few Christmas trees to sell in addition to the wild-harvested trees they had been selling ‘down-country’.  

 

 

Over the years, Jim and Joan expanded the tree farm with the help of their son, Steve, who took over the business around 2000.  With the help of his wife, Sharon, and their two boys, the farm continues to grow with a large wholesale and choose and cut business.   We have over a hundred acres of trees in Craftsbury and surrounding towns, all of which get our individual year-round attention.  We grow mostly balsam and fraser fir in a variety of sizes, shapes, and grades, from table tops to twenty footers.   Many of our wholesale customers have been with us for over forty years and we value their business, yet we always welcome the opportunity to develop new relationships.
