GOEBEL FARMS will be closed for the 2020 season after tomorrow, Saturday December 19th, unless you have a tree already tagged. Then you need to call for appointment at 812-431-5185. We still have 30 precut trees, fresh wreaths and Apple Cider.
You may be asking yourself why we need to close a week before Christmas? So we will have trees for future years.
Farming is about planning for the future. Every spring since 1989, our family has planted thousands of seedlings with future hopes of seeing customers come to the farm to make memories with their families and take home a perfect tree. What you may not know is that once you plant a seedling, it takes a few years for it to root in and create its foundation. Then it starts to grow vertically an average of 1 foot per year and that’s the best case scenario, when mother nature is on our side. So if you cut an 8 foot tree this year, we’ve likely been taking care of it for 12 years or more. It will take us another 12 years or so to grow another 8 foot tree! So with that in mind, and in hopes of keeping our farm alive for generations to come, we need to close the farm down to preserve our trees.
May you all have a Merry Christmas and we hope to see you next year in good health.
May God Bless You All!!￼￼￼￼￼￼
