History:

Loblolly Acres is a family farm that is run by three generation.  We are proud to be a family run farm that is bringing agriculture to Delawareans.

In 1964 Gooden and Barbara Warren, both native Delawareans, purchased what is now called Loblolly Acres.  It was purchased with no electricity, running water, phone lines, or modern amenities.  There was an old house and an old barn that were both torn down immediately.  Only a small shed was left.

From scratch, Mr. Warren built the current house that is on the farm brick by brick.  To say the least, it was a labor of love, built for his love, Barbara Ann.  By 1965 the Warren family moved in to the newly built home.  Vegetables and traditional farm crops were always grown on the farm for the family.  In the 1970's Barbara Ann decided that she wanted to start her own farming business that would also be sharing crops for her favorite holiday; Christmas!

The family took the one room shed and turned it into a Christmas shop and planted 10 acres of Christmas trees.  Loblolly Acres was then transformed into a Christmas delight.  Barbara threw herself into her work and loved every minute of it.  Her business then began to grow.  She planted more Christmas trees, hired amish girls to help her around the farm, planted mums, and expanded what she carried in her shop.  Over the years, she had her grandchildren assist her and helped teach them excellent work ethic and farm life.

Took our grandkids there today. Total waste of $18 in my opinion. Nowhere near as good as others in the area.

Great place for kids. Came with my daughter's daycare every years. We decorate ornaments, meet santa, and take a ride through the tree farm.
