RUDY'S CHRISTMAS TREE FARM

New Bloomfield, PA
of 1979 at Jack and Jeanne Rudy's newly purchased thirty-three acre farm. Jack was a painting contractor, living in the same small town that he grew up in, but he always wanted to own a farm. At age 50, after thirty years of marriage and sending five children off to college, his dream began to come true.
Soon after the purchase of the farm, he began to rebuilt the stone walls of the old bank barn, plant apple and nut trees, and berry bushes. When Spring came, Jack surprised his family with a shipment of one thousand baby Christmas trees. It took an entire week to plant all of them by hand. Springtime at the tree farm has not been the same since then!
Almost thirty-three years later, more than twenty thousand trees have been planted and Rudy's Christmas Tree Farm continues to thrive in scenic Perry County, PA!
Our fields of Concolor, Balsam, Canaan, Fraser and Douglas Firs are beautiful to walk through, fragrant to smell, and perfectly shaped by hand to grace your home at the holidays.
About a dozen years ago, the barn's lower floor was turned into a seasonal Christmas Shop. For a few weeks each year, the tool and sawdust filled wood workshop is transformed into a glowing holiday wonderland! Honey from Jack's bees, jams from the farm berries, apple products, wreaths, eggs, beeswax candles, Christmas decorations and ornaments fill the barn's nooks and crannies.
Jack still orders hundreds of trees to plant each Spring. He tends each individual tree, by hand, for at least a decade until it grows tall enough to make a perfect Christmas tree. Jacks make jams, jelly, apple butter and apple cider in the Fall. Most any day of the year, you can find him tooling about the farm on his old Ford tractor. Several of the Rudy daughters make crafts and wreaths to decorate and sell in the holiday craft barn.
Family is important to the Rudy's. Making the Christmas Tree Farm a warm and welcoming environment for all the families who visit brings great joy to us. We look forward to greeting old friends and meeting new ones as you visit the farm to find your perfect Christmas tree.
Rudy's Christmas Tree Farm is located 7 miles west of Duncannon on Route 849/Newport Road at the intersection of Narrow Road. Driving directions and a link to a Google map can be found on our Directions page.
