Community Spotlight: Evergreen Farms

While cypress and mesquite trees tend to dominate the sides of the roads around Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, and Georgetown, one family-owned farm is producing its own distinct shades of green foliage. While not native to central Texas, the Christmas trees grown at Evergreen Farms are a welcome sight to thousands of locals.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect centerpiece for your Christmas celebration or want to decorate the porch with some homemade jack-o-lanterns, the Walterscheidt family has what you need!

A Winter Wonderland Deep In the Heart of TX

Do you ever wish you could step inside one of those Hallmark Channel TV Christmas movies? To be able to bundle yourself up in flannel and enjoy a wagon ride through a forest of sweet-smelling pine? Thanks to Evergreen Farms, you don’t have to make a special trip to snowy New England to capture a little movie magic.

Located outside Elgin, TX, this tree farm provides the perfect escape from the noisy city. No crowded church parking lot, Evergreen Farms allows visitors to amble through acres of carefully cultivated trees all while enjoying the crisp autumn breeze.

Founded by a former Texas A&M forestry professor, owner Mike takes great pride in his arbor.  His wife,  Beth—also a retired teacher—loves to provide educational tours throughout the year to anyone interested in expanding their Christmas tree expertise.
