HISTORY OF OTTERDALE VIEW

Named for the farm's view of the adjacent Otterdale Mill Road and historic Otterdale Mill, Otterdale View Farm is a 3rd generation family farm. The Christmas business began in 1986 when Bill and Jean Coshun started selling handmade wreaths at the local farmers market. The farm was opened for choose & cut trees in 1991.

THE SHOP

Otterdale View Farm- Looking from the parking lot to the front of the shop.

After cutting your tree, warm up inside the craft shop. Here you can browse the festive holiday decorations while sipping complimentary warm apple cider, entertain the children with the toy train above, and pay for your tree! Other tree accessories are sold here as well, such as tree stands, tree preservative, removal bags, and watering elves.

Red tarps may be borrowed to aid in the tree cutting process. Kneel on them while cutting, and drag your tree on them out of the field. Pick up a tarp outside the Christmas shop.
