Hoffbauer's Christmas Trees and Wreaths

Hoffbauer's Christmas Trees and Wreaths
14th Avenue East And 3rd Street


With Farmer Doug, it's all about growing green. From apples to zucchini with Christmas trees in between, we pride ourselves on giving our customers the best service, information, and produce.

Growing green is more of a lifestyle than anything else. It also means that we use less inputs. We pretty much reuse as much as possible to make our gardens better. We primarily heat our home with wood. The wood ashes go on the garden to sweeten the soil. We use shredded paper to bed our chickens. We use the composted chicken manure on potatoes. We have red wigglers (worms) composting our food scraps in a tub in the basement. Whenever possible, we will recycle, reuse, or reduce what we use.

Customer service is very important to us. Food safety and cleanliness is of the utmost importance. The chickens have always been butchered in a licensed butcher shop, but this year, we are going one step further...the chickens will be butchered with an inspector on site. This will make them "same as USDA", therefore enabling restaurants to purchase them for sale. This is exciting news to us!!!!
