Sprouffske Trees, Inc. began in 1965 when Fred Sprouffske planted the first Douglas fir seedlings to grow Christmas Trees on his farm. He had previously leased 20 acres to Hoffert Tree Co. and thought it looked like an interesting endeavor.
In 1966, he spoke to each of his four children and the Sprouffske Tree Co., a partnership of the 5 families had its beginning with the first trees sold in 1972.
By the year 1978, the partnership became a corporation with wholesale and retail (u-cut) trees being sold along with swags and assorted Christmas items in the “Tree House” (retail sales area).
Fred and Ethel-Faye, and one son Larry and Mary his wife, and son-in-law Bill Roberts are now deceased. In the last few years, one of the original families, daughter Nancy, retired from Sprouffske Trees. The owners are the three remaining families: Jerry and Sandra Sprouffske, Karen and Johnie Creamer, and Jonathan and Shelley Sprouffske.
The fourth generation of the farm is all boys. Ranging from high school to kindergarten, you'll find the youngest generation on the farm as well!
