Evergreen Farms hosts a Pumpkin Hunt every weekend in October. Hunt mini pumpkins hidden among the Christmas trees and enjoy other fun activities. Tree sales begin the Friday after Thanksgiving through December 24. Pavilion rental for private parties is available.
Elgin’s farm, Evergreen Farms, became a reality in 1989 when Mike and Beth Walterscheidt bought the property with the intention of establishing a high-quality family farm for Central Texans. The first trees were harvested in 1996 and the Pumpkin Hunt began in 2001. Since then, the farm has grown to hosting thousands of Central Texans during the Pumpkin Hunt and tree harvesting seasons. The Walterscheidts owned a Christmas tree farm in Bryan, Texas before opening the Elgin farm. They currently live on the farm with their donkey, goats, duck and barn cats.
Evergreen Farms is a Choose and Cut Christmas tree farm designed with fun loving consumers in mind. Customers can experience the fresh air of the country as they pick out their perfect Christmas tree. Take a wagon ride out to the field where you can cut your own Texas-grown Christmas tree or pick a precut Noble fir or Fraser fir.
