Wolgast Tree Farm

Wolgast Tree Farm
176 Bennetts Lane

Wolgast Tree Farm is a special place, growing Christmas trees using sustainable and river-friendly farming practices, with special attention on wildlife and conservation.

Run by retired Rutgers' Wildlife Management Professor Len Wolgast and wife Cathy Blumig, also a Wildlife Management expert, Wolgast Tree Farm has been growing Christmas Trees since 1977, and the farm officially opened for business in 1984.

As an undergraduate at Rutgers, Len took a forestry course on tree identification.  His professor taught students how to identify Christmas trees and discussed how the trees were grown.  That's when Len decided that one day he would grow Christmas trees himself.
