Bender Tree is a choose and cut Christmas tree farm who also offers precut trees in our barn and outside display. We offer wreaths, tree stands, ornaments, and more in our modest farm store. If we are not too busy, you may obtain a 4×6 photo in front of a Christmas tree backdrop. Credit cards, checks or cash are all acceptable forms of payment. Horse drawn wagon rides are available on Saturdays and Sundays during the hours and dates indicated. Tree shaking and baling are also available for trees up to 8 ft.
Bender Christmas Tree Farm and store of Ashtabula County, Ohio is located in Sheffield Center, Ohio about 10 minutes southeast of the city of Ashtabula with easy access from I-90 or Rt. 11. It’s just 3 miles south of I-90 at the corner of Rt. 193 and Sheffield Rd. The farm was established in 1987 at this Northeast Ohio location and serves the customers from northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania.
We are beginning our 22nd year of selling trees. There are choose and cut blues spruce, white spruce and white pine available. There is a good selection of very large white pine near the cabin for those interested. To offset our minimal selection of choose and cut, we are offering precut #1 fraser firs. Our original fields are being depleted and we are in the process of clearing and soon to be replanting. We are working with a minimal staff. Please stop in and enjoy the wagon rides during posted weekend hours, shop the farm store and pick out a tree. Depending on traffic some services may be limited. Please take advantage of our weekday hours.
Horse Drawn Wagon Rides: Saturdays 10am to 3pm, Sundays 10am to 4pm.
Horse drawn wagon rides are available on weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Please be aware of hour of availability. They are not available for all open hours. The wagon rides are free and will take you out and bring you back in with your Christmas tree. Rides are provided by Sackett’s Lonely Oak Wagon Rides.
Visit the Farm Store for fresh selection of holiday wreaths and greens. This year we are making our wreaths with fresh fraser fir cuttings for indoor and outdoor use. The farm store also offers tree related items such as ornaments, tree stands, lights, tree skirts, Christmas stockings, candles, tree bags and other miscellaneous items.
