In addition to the trees, we sell a variety of other by-products of the grove. These include:
All our wreaths are made by hand, by Emmet. They are a mix of whatever greens he feels like using, typically pure balsam fir or a mix of species, and they are finished with some combination of ribbon, pinecones and winterberries.
Our wreaths come in small, medium and large, and this year are $15, $20 and $25. They are stoutly made, absolutely fresh, and many customers have told us that their wreaths kept their needles until April, when they very sadly took them down. If you would like to order an especially large wreath for your house or barn, please get in touch, the earlier the better. We are usually booked up for wreath work by Thanksgiving.
We mostly sell greens wholesale (and if you are a business and interested in purchasing wholesale greens, wreaths or trees, be in touch and Emmet will be happy to send you a wholesale price list and discuss availability). But if you want to make your own wreaths, whether for home or for sale, or want to have greenery to decorate with, we can provide balsam boughs at $30 for a 50 pound bale. If you just want a few to make one wreath, ask Emmet when you are at the grove, and we can negotiate a price based on how much you want.
Emmet carves wooden spoons for much of the rest of the year (to see more of his work, visit www.emmetvandriesche.com ) and while he has only a little time for carving during the busy holiday season, he does his best to keep a supply of spoons available for purchase at the grove on the weekends.
