About The Farm
Sandhill Tree Farm’s history dates back to August 10, 1837 when Daniel Wells, Jr. from Milwaukee and Gurdon Hubbard from Chicago received a U.S. Government land patent for the land that now comprises our modern-day parcel. In 1873, the northern part of the farm was owned by Wilhelm Ferdinand Opitz, a German immigrant who arrived in the United States in 1839. Along with Adolph Zimmermann, he co-founded the Mequon Brewery, which is now recognized as Foxtown Brewery.
Sustainable Traditions, Seasonal Magic
With approximately half of the 75-acre property dedicated to growing Fraser Firs, Sandhill Tree Farm offers a choose-and-cut Christmas tree experience, cherished by many as a holiday tradition. Each tree cut from the field is replanted in the spring, emphasizing the eco-friendly nature of real trees, which are 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Come visit the farm and explore our tree fields to choose your very own “real” Christmas tree.
