Mehaffey Tree Farm located off of I40 at Exit 20 in beautiful Haywood County, North Carolina has been in operation as a family farm since 1984. When owners, Walt and Mary Mehaffey, retired from their day jobs in 2011 and 2009 respectively, the farm was officially established as a Doing Business As and named Mehaffey Tree Farm. The farm offers beautiful Fraser firs 5-11 ft. in height, wreaths and garlands to Choose & Cut customers at retail prices during the holiday season. In addition, the farm continues to sell wholesale orders when requested. Wholesale orders have decreased over the years due in part to major competitors who are very large with millions of trees, instead of a few thousand as the Mehaffey’s have. Mary Mehaffey says “We are happy being small. We think we offer fair prices to both our wholesale and retail customers. In addition to wholesale and retail, we also enjoy assisting public and private schools with their fundraising efforts.”
The Mehaffey Tree Farm opens this holiday season on Saturday, November 19, 2011 and will be in operation daily from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm every day, except Mondays through December 18, 2011. The acreage of the farm is just at the right elevation for ease of access for the young and young-at-heart customers. A portion of the Morton building has been converted to a “Christmas Shoppe” with a gas heater, hot chocolate and apple cider so customers can warm up inside and out after walking through thousands of trees to choose the special one to take home with them. Once they make their selection, the Mehaffey’s cut, bale and load the trees on your vehicle. Businesses or individuals may reach us by phone at 828-926-1424, at www.mehaffeytreefarm.com on the Contact Page, by email at [email protected], or you can visit their listing on Pick-A-Pepper. Mary goes on to say “While we don’t typically deliver because we are a small operation, we do make every effort to satisfy the needs of our customers. Come see us at Mehaffey Tree Farm! You will walk away with beautiful products and cash still left in your pockets!”
