About Whorton's Chub Lake Tree Farm
Owned and operated by Jim & Bev Whorton since 1985, Chub Lake Tree Farm is located in Northeast Minnesota just outside Carlton, about 15 miles west of Duluth.
This location assures the trees are exposed to many nights of freezing temperatures prior to harvest. That is how Mother Nature "hardens off" trees, preparing for better color and needle retention after harvest.
"We have down-sized our Choose & Cut Farm which makes it small enough for us to give each tree careful attention. However, in order to have available trees in future years, it also makes it necessary for us to TAG THE CHOICE TREES we want harvested each year."
"We continue to offer fresh precut trees in our sale barn as well as beautiful balsam Christmas wreaths and garland. We also offer baling services for trees, weather permitting, and assistance with loading, if required. After finding your special tree, enjoy a free cup of hot cider and cookies."

You can have a wreath shipped direct to you, your friends and family without leaving home. Our mail order program allows families throughout the USA to share seasonal pleasures from our handmade wreaths.
Whether you purchase a Wreath @ your Door or visit the farm, we try our best to make it a very satisfactory and pleasing experience.
