The Crow's Nest Farms
Established in 2017
The Crow’s Nest Farms was purchased in 2014. Kimberly Dale was in search of a farm that could create a feeling of serenity and escape for those who love certain aspects of urban living, but still miss peace of the woods and animals.
The Crow’s Nest was named after her brother who passed away in 2001. He was called Crow by those that loved him most and knew of his love for nature and what mother nature has to offer.
The Crow’s Nest Farms is located in the beautiful landscape of the Crowley’s Ridge Mountains in Western Greene County, Arkansas.
Wildlife of all species consider Crows Nest Farms their home and solitude.
The Crows Nest Farms is in the process of growing Virginia Pines and offering Fraser Firs for select customers.
It takes a minimum of 5 years for our trees to reach approximately 6′ to 8′. Over their lifetime they receive numerous trimmings, weeding, and feedings.
On the week of Thanksgiving, we receive Fraser Fir trees from North Carolina. These are often viewed as the more traditional Christmas tree, but unfortunately do not grow in warmer climates. We buy from a small family farm so the trees are premium quality. They also provide us with fresh wreaths and garland for you to adorn your home.
We offer a cut your own Christmas Tree Farm. We offer a hand saw for your family to utilize for picking out that perfect tree.
Crows Nest Farms has Nigerian Dwarf goats that can also be available to various school groups. Meet the goats below!
Conway was born in September of 2019. He is fairly friendly and likes to jump on Willie when given the chance. He is partial to sweet feed. Conway’s mother is Missy. His father is Big Sky.
Willie is a little bit sneaky and is a self doer. He likes to take control of certain situations but knows how to be a team player with the herd. His mother is Missy. His father is Big Sky.
Waylon is the ladies’ man in the crowd. He was born in Spring of 2016. Waylon has figured out the important short cuts in life like laying down to eat hay, and waiting his turn to snatch some sweet feed. Waylon is the more friendly of the herd. He is a wethered male.
Missy was purchased also at Sunridge Farms. She is rather quiet and protective of her kids. She was born in 2014.
Moses is rather standoffish and would prefer with not wasting his time with niceties in life. Due to his approach, I probably devote quite a bit of time to lure him with my graces (oh which I am unsuccessful). He was born in 2015 and is a wethered male.
She is the rather stunning beauty of the heard. Keeps to herself very well and doesn’t like to draw attention to herself, even though her spots and pretty white hair take over. Her mother is Prissy and she was born in summer of 2016. She was also purchased at Sunridge Farms.
Dewey is the only goat that is not full bread of Nigerian Dwarf. He is also half mini-sable. You could call him the bull in the china shop or the big hauncho of the group. He and I have had some good battles over time during hoof trimming. Dewey was born in Spring of 2016 and I sure hope he is done growing.
Kenny was born as a twin with Dolly to Priscilla. Special thanks to Jennifer Gaithright for letting us borrow the services of Lenny back in the Spring of 2020. Kenny is full of energy and was ready for snuggles early in life.
Dolly was born as a twin with Kenny to Priscilla. She is a timid little gal, such a difference from her namesake “Dolly Parton”. I believe she will grow out of her shyness and soon tell the boys how life is going to be.

Real vs. Fake
In this age of environmental awareness it’s good to know a favorite family holiday tradition of choosing a real Christmas tree over an artificial tree is still the environmentally sound choice.
A benefit to the atmosphere, real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases, emitting fresh oxygen. This helps prevent the earth-warming “greenhouse effect”. One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people. With approximately one million acres producing Christmas trees in the United States, that translates into oxygen for 18 million people every day. Unlike fake trees, real trees are a renewable resource. And for every real Christmas tree harvested, three seedlings are planted in its place.
Christmas tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts. Often, Christmas trees are grown on soils that could not support other crops. Real Christmas trees are an all-American, recyclable resource.
Artificial trees, most of which are manufactured in Korea, Taiwan or Hong Kong, consist of PVC plastics and metals that aren’t biodegradable and can emit toxic fumes into the atmosphere during the manufacturing process. When disposed of, the artificial trees will never deteriorate. Their effects on our environment are evident and will remain for countless generations. Artificial Christmas trees may also contain lead and may shed lead-laced dust, which may cover branches or shower gifts and the floor below the tree.
If you care about your health and the environment, choose a real tree for your family this Christmas.
We grow Virginia Pine. For various customers, we also order Fraser Firs.
Each tree is priced individually. They average $8-$12 per foot, i.e. a 6-foot tree will be around $60-$70 dollars.
Yes, with special care, we will provide a hand saw for you to use at your leisure.
You’re more than welcome to watch your tree be cut down though.
We accept all major credit cards. MC, Visa, Discover, AmericanExpress.
As long as the dog is on a leash at ALL TIMES and does not bite.
Prior arrangements must be arranged with us.
No admission, there are activities that do have a fee associated with it. See activity page.
Professional photographers must contact us! Photo sessions will not be allowed unless the photographer has checked in, paid and received their pass.
The issue is always providing proper water. NEVER allow the stand to go dry. The trunk will produce a sap that seals the ability to take on the water. A properly well taken care of Virginia Pine and Frasier Fir will last 4 to 6 weeks.
Our trees are grown locally and provide opportunities for local employment. Picking out the family Christmas Tree is an experience that you will not receive at a box store. If you are looking for a cheap and meaningless experience to buy a Christmas tree – our farm is not for you.
Crows Nest Christmas Tree Farms makes donations to local charities every year. Shop local.
