  What hours are you open?
We have four production seasons. Our hours vary according to season. See Event Schedule. Private or bulk sales such as hay or landscaping trees require an appointment.


  Are you hard to find?

We don’t think so. We're only 3 1/2 miles from town. You can get driving directions here. Our friends and neighbors just point up the road and say “follow the signs.” When you pass the owl house, you know you are almost here. Call if you need help finding us. (859-582-5785)


  How do I prepare for my trip to Baldwin Farms?

Come prepared for a day in the country. Wear comfortable shoes and warm, old clothes. Bring rain gear if the weather is threatening. The “cutter-downers’ and the “loader-uppers’ should have protective gloves. Read all the policies and tips on this page.


  Do you have fun things for kids to do?
Time spent at Baldwin Farms has become a family tradition for our many long-time customers. Kids, young and old, look forward to the festival atmosphere we’ve created for them during the Pumpkins & More Season. The animals and other activities provide delightful entertainment as they explore and discover. At Christmas, guests enjoy searching for the perfect tree together with family and selecting their wreaths, garlands and other greenery. Christmas brings a mystical sense of wonder. Posing in Christmas hats and sharing hot chocolate and candy canes is a big hit. A moment of reflection at the Spirit Tree is a favorite. The Baldwin Farms Family Tradition is a wonderful way to begin the holidays.
 

  Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We accept cash or check (with identification). We require 50% deposit with orders.
 

  What is your pet policy?
It’s best to leave “Rover” at home. We don’t encourage you to bring your pets because of the farm animals and other guests. But, if you decide to bring your pet along, please keep him on a leash and under control at all times. Remember that other guests may not be as “pet friendly” as the rest of us and feel uncertain of your pet’s intentions. We want all our guests to feel welcome and comfortable. While your pet may also enjoy a day in the country, the farm animals do not particularly enjoy being chased or your pet’s dinner. While it is a farm, you must remember that small children are playing around in the main areas. Please walk your pets into the field away from public areas to attend to theirs “needs.” You are responsible for the actions of your pet towards the farm, our employees or our guests.


  What is your safety policy?
We try to keep our fields and other areas well-groomed but there are some things that are beyond all farmers’ control. We urge you to be cautious to avoid injury and remind you that you visit at your own risk. Be careful of tree holes, tree stumps, an occasional blackberry vine, uneven ground and sharp saws. Children under the age of 18 should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.


  What kinds of Christmas trees do you have?
We grow Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce, White Spruce and White Pine on the farm. Our selection depends on the growth and availability of the tree varieties each season. We try to post what is available and it's on a first-come-first-serve basis. It’s too hot to grow Fraser Firs in Kentucky so we ship them from North Carolina. They are Santa's favorite choice for a variety of reasons.


  Are your trees healthy?
Our trees have been inspected by the University of Kentucky and are free of dangerous insects and diseases.


  Is it bad for the environment to cut down the farm trees?

Trees are a renewable resource. We replace every tree that we cut. One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirements for 18 people. Real trees help control soil erosion and provide habitat for birds and other critters. They are planted to be harvested. Later, they can be recycled in a variety of ways to return to the soil from which they grew to complete life’s cycle. Some folks leave their used tree in the backyard during winter as a bird sanctuary.


  Do you make wreaths and other decorations?
We have fresh wreaths of various sizes. We also have garland, kissing balls, mailbox covers & evergreens. For your convenience, we try to keep a stock of tree stands, tree bags and preservative to help keep your tree fresh.
