**NO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY DURING THE CHRISTMAS SEASON**
Photographers only taking pictures
In October everyone (clients and photographers) must pay admission cost ($8 per person) and are then welcome to play and take pictures. However, tree fields will only be open and available for picture taking the weekend of October 26 & 27, 2019. Christmas Season ONLY TREE CUSTOMERS are welcome due to the volume of people wanting to buy trees during this season we cannot accommodate people here for other reasons.
We appreciate the fact that Elgin CHRISTmas Tree Farm is a beautiful place for taking pictures. We are sorry we cannot make special appointments or allow picture taking during the Christmas season for photographers. Our farm business plan does not include accommodating photographers. When we are closed to the public we are doing farm work that does not allow for the public to be on the farm. When we are selling trees we don’t have room for extra people to park, ride on the hayride or enter closed areas of the farm.
