Oak Hill Christmas Tree Farm

Situated on 41 acres of pristine farmland and woods, abutting hundreds of acres of conservations land, at the intersection of Route 2 and 495, in Harvard, Massachusetts, the Kronauer farm invokes a quiet sensibility and charm from its origins 200 years earlier. Originally it was a potato farm with an apple orchard. Now it is a modest Christmas tree farm with a 200-tree apple orchard that is commercially managed by one of Harvard’s fruit farmers. The owner’s parents purchased the property in 1953, and named it “Three Penny Farm” because their children were all redheads. Still family owned, Charles and Eileen maintain the bucolic fields and the several vegetable and flower gardens. The variety of trees is unusual: Gingko, Amaryllis Cork, Star Magnolia, Weeping Hemlock, Paper-bark Maple, Cyprus, Chinese Tea Crab, Tulip, and a few heirloom apple trees of which Winesap is a favorite. Huge oak trees shade the house, which was built in the mid 1800’s, and like many farmhouses, modified over the years. It has a modern kitchen and large stone patio that serve the backyard venue.

The gently undulating fields and backyard are what makes this venue so special. In particular, there is an amazing view of mount Monadnock 32 miles to the NW in New Hampshire, visible on most summer days and spectacular in the fall. A seasonal array of flowers are everywhere around the property, including meadow flowers. All the table flowers for a large August wedding were harvested from the yard. A clean, spring-fed swimming pond is at the edge of the field and is a great attraction for supervised children. A small swing set is a permanent fixture in the back yard and a two-acre field adjacent to the venue—which can easily handle a 120-foot tent—provides ample off-street parking. A changing room and bathroom for the wedding party are included.

The farm is close to cosmopolitan Boston and the historic towns of Concord and Lexington with easy access to major highways and Logan airport.
