Lantern Farm offers the unique experience to watch your tree grow over the years. We know that children have a special connection to their Christmas Tree. We want to give them the opportunity to grow with their tree. We've witnessed the excitement of a child as they return to the farm each year to see how their young tree has grown. We offer this experience by hanging a special Lantern Farm Ornament on the tree, which includes the tree and family's name to identify the adopted tree. We recommend adopting at least a four year old tree. The younger trees are adorable, but they still have a lot of growing left to do before they can leave the farm. When you are ready to take the tree home with you, we will measure it and wrap it up for a safe ride to it's new loving home. The custom farm patinated ornament that you take home with your tree will embody the memories that you built with your special tree for a lifetime.
