On Route 9, three miles east of Odessa, sits a 330 acre farm known as Coleman's Christmas Tree Farm. This family owned and operated farm is well known as the place to be at Christmas time, with the largest selection of plantation-grown Christmas trees in Delaware.
Coleman's is a family farm, operated by the Coleman family since 1932. The farm has been enrolled in Farmland Preservation, so that it will always remain a farm and never be developed. The Coleman farm was a dairy farm from 1932-1951, owned and operated by William and Elizabeth Coleman. The first Christmas trees were planted in 1955, as wildlife habitats. In the mid 1960's a few trees were sold to friends and neighbors. In 1975 the small acreage allotted to trees was taken over by Jack Coleman, and the remainder of the farm continued to grow grains. By the mid 1980's the entire farm grew Christmas trees.
We offer choose and cut your own Christmas trees, pre-cut trees, wreaths and arrangements, and ice cream. On the weekends during the Christmas season we offer baked goods in our bake shop, Santa Claus visits the farm, and we have a food truck on site!
We offer bonfires in the evenings during the months of September, October,
and the beginning of November.
