Greg and Jan Davagian
Greg and Jan, with the help of their family and friends, operate Davagian Christmas tree farm in Sutton. The Davagian family began planting Christmas trees in 1979 and has been working together to maintain a unique and memorable holiday family tradition ever since. On about 4 acres of land, they offer a variety of trees to cut yourself, primarily Fraser, Balsam, and Canaan Fir along with White and Blue Spruce. Grow between 200 - 300 trees each season, which typically runs from November 28 through December 21 or until they sell out of trees. They make it easy by offering you a saw and wagon, and it's a short walk to all the fields. More here »
