Over 60 years ago the first Christmas Trees of this farm were planted by the Althouse Family. The first
plantings were started in 1956. At that time, Scotch Pine was the tree of choice. Charles and Robert Althouse
sold Christmas Trees in front of the now restored Barn 54 years ago. Charles continued to raise Christmas
trees as did Robert and eventually Earl. As the years passed, Charles grew the farm into a full time business
known as Althouse Nursery. Until the opening of the Cobblestone Farms Barn in 2006 the tree business was
conducted from the Charles and Martha Althouse residence on Witmer Road.
Cobblestone Farms starts selling cut trees the day after Thanksgiving.
More and more we are starting to sell during the week before Thanksgiving due to many requests.
Our trees are cut daily since we grow all our own.
October 24, 2011...the day Charles Althouse left us to be with our Heavenly Father. Since my Dad's passing, it has been
a challenge in the maintenance of the tree farm. Mom, at age 80, still does mowing and tree shearing. My son, Rich,
helps with the equipment, spraying and general field work. I have been getting a handle on a good bit of mowing and tree
shearing. I thank all our past customers for their support. My Dad formed amazing relationships with so many over the
years. It is a treat to see so many customers every year when they come for their tree! Debbie Althouse
