CHOCOLAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - It’s a time-honored Christmas experience to go and pick out a fresh balsam fir or white pine off the stand to bring home.

And ‘Meister’s for Christmas’ Tree Farm in Marquette is happy to announce that they are opening for business on Nov. 27.

It’s a relief of certainty during a period of uncertainty during the pandemic.

“I’m sure everyone’s looking for a sense of normalcy and this is a great place to do it. There’s lots of space outside. The tree’s are naturally distant, six feet apart, so it’s a good thing to do with your family,” said co-owner Katelyn Meister.

The family said that a big question everyone’s been asking: Is Santa “coming to town?"

The Meisters happily announce “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” coming to the farm this year -- planning things differently COVID safety measures.

But the farm is ready to ring in the holiday cheer in the coming weeks.

If shopping from the comforts and safety of home is preferred, the Meister family activated their online gift shop as well.

It’s all part of meeting the challenges this year under the pandemic and continuing a family business spanning over 60 years -- providing fresh Christmas trees and wreaths to the local area.

It’s also a spacious outdoor activity that keeps the holiday spirit alive and well.

Meister said she and the family look forward to seeing anxious shoppers come Nov. 27.

“Things will look pretty much the same, but of course you’re going to see the differences you see in other businesses with the coronavirus. We’re taking every precaution that’s recommended and we’re hoping that our patrons do the same. We’re really excited to just have that sense of normalcy having everybody here making their Christmas tradition,” she said.
