Find your family's perfect Christmas tree in the Poconos at Yenser's Tree Farm in Lehighton!
Yenser's Tree Farm in Lehighton is a third-generation family-owned and operated business. When Ryan and his wife Jan took over in 2015, they moved out of their recently built home and on to the farm.
“The unique view is what makes Yenser's Tree Farm, Yenser's. The view of the valley is just beautiful. It's a very quiet, rural area just a few minutes outside of town,” said co-owner Ryan Wentz.
With acres upon acres of Christmas trees, whatever you're looking for is here. Choose and cut your own or leave the work to someone else.
“We have the meat and potato variety of Christmas trees here. We like to say Christmas trees are like people, each one is different,” Wentz added.
Kids, and kids at heart, will love riding the reindeer train and hay wagon. The seasonal experience at Yenser's continues with a decked-out gift shop selling fresh wreaths, cozy outdoor seating with firepits, plus complimentary hot coco, coffee, and cookies.
Yenser’s also offers a popular Sunflower Festival, held the first two weekends in August. “The event has grown considerably in the last three years. We have acres of sunflowers, food, live music, a sunflower maze, photo ops, and so much more,” he added.
Plus, you won't want to miss Yenser's Fall Fest, open six weekends in September and October. “Guests enjoy pumpkin patches, a corn maze, cannons that shoot corn cobs, our reindeer train runs, we have a full fun zone for kids with a zipline, an obstacle course, tire mountain, and tons of playground equipment,” Wentz said.
In addition to creating the popular Sunflower and Fall Festivals, Ryan and Jan participate every year in Trees for Troops, donating Christmas trees to military families at bases around the country.
Now, they are in the process of building a 5,000 square-foot building in the middle of the farm for special events. Imagine getting married in a winter wonderland among the trees or attending a meeting from a field filled with sunflowers. “It’s going to be huge for us,” Wentz smiled.
Yenser's has come a long way in 51 years and continues to grow. A business built by family, for families.
