We make it our number one priority to make the best memories in each and every family, see what some families have to say about their experiences and what others have to say about the events we've held annually. 

  • "My family and I visited the tree farm today for the very first time and were completely blown away! It is such a gem of a place! The grounds were so picturesque & charming in every way! We felt as though we were in a Hallmark Christmas movie!-the music, the scent of trees, the warm fire and all of the beautiful little photo spots! The wagon ride was beautiful, and the visit with santa was so special for our children! I cannot say enough good things about this place. We have decided to make it a yearly tradition. I was also pleasantly surprised by the fact parking/admission and all of the festive events were free of charge. Thank you to everyone there for making this such a special and memorable event for my family and I! "

  • "I just want to say thank you to you and the team for our time there yesterday. The staff was so accommodating. Everyone had a great time. Drysdale's is absolutely beautiful. The train ride was the highlight for all and spending time around the fire. We did some Christmas caroling which everyone enjoyed. We toured the wreath making and the staff were very informative and great to chat with. We took lots of photos for everyone to remember our time there. Thank you again for making our day memorable. We look forward to future outings at your facility, as everyone is talking about when we can go back."

  • "My neighbour next door just listed his house for sale a few days ago, and the city just replaced the tree in his front yard today. He has spent the last few weeks getting his home ready, including some really beautiful work around his front yard. The crew that arrived from Drysdale’s were incredibly respectful, taking care and attention to detail to ensure that the flowers that had been planted around the previous tree, were back where they belonged, ensuring the mulch was also where it was. Such a great crew and I was very impressed."

  • "Drysdale has been our first family Christmas tradition each year. We go on the first Saturday of December and have done so since my son was born, 20 years ago. We have searched high and low every year for the perfect tree and have never been disappointed. When my children were small a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Clause was the most exiting part of the day. Now we especially enjoy the hot apple cider, hot chocolate and other delicious treats which we eat around the fire pit. Oh and you cant forget the Evergreen Store.... its like going into Aladdin's Cave! Each year we each choose a new ornament and we keep them in a special container... .. every time we decorate the tree we get to remember Christmases past as we hang each one. I hope this year, even with the restrictions that I'm sure will be a factor, we will be able to search out our 2020 perfect family tree... and I am sure it will be as magical as all the others. Thank you Drysdale for being a big part of our Christmas traditions."


  • "From the moment we first arrived at Drysdale's, my now husband(!) and I knew immediately that we wanted to get married there. It was the first venue we looked at, and needless to say, it was our last. We were completely charmed with Drysdale's train, the adorable red benches, the beautiful grounds and the greenhouse complete with twinkle lights. Our wedding took place on August 10th, 2019 and we were lucky enough to have a sunny summer day. We were married under a beautiful oak tree surrounded by friends and family. Following the ceremony was cocktail hour by the gazebo where guests mingled and played lawn games. From there, dinner (a summer barbecue) and reception was held in the greenhouse. The wide variety of settings meant our guests were never bored and created such a fun atmosphere. We received so many compliments that our wedding was unlike anything people had been to before and was so different from your typical banquet hall wedding, which was exactly what we were going for. The team at Drysdale's, especially Luke, were very responsive, usually getting back to me in a matter of hours. They were extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you Drysdale's for everything! :)"

  • "Drysdale's Tree farm is more well known for their christmas trees, but on a whim my boyfriend and I heard an advertisement on the radio for the easter egg hunt. The kids had a blast and everyone received a very generous goody bag once they returned from the hunt. The magic show and pet show kept the kids entertained and had them talking about it for days. 100% would return, best easter egg hunt we've ever attended."

I love to see the community spirit and the planning and coordination, and delivery for all the events. I go to the Christmas event every year with my three sons and we absolutely adore it. We went to the Halloween event for the first time today and it was amazing! It was a little bit rainy, but we are Canadian and it's such a great outdoors place to go -all four seasons, rain or shine! I look forward to going back to the event in the evening. "

  • "I took my family of 3 girls and 2 boys here. They LOVED it, Drysdale's tree farm was an amazing affordable experience for my family. My eldest daughter Jaclyn loved the haunted wagon ride! While my son Mac was a big fan of the face paint. My other son Kurtis was grumpy but when we showed up at Drysdale's his mood changed quick! I forgot to mention how beautiful our tree was. Family Friendly and affordable 10/10 would recommend!"
