The Cartner Christmas Tree Farm is a family owned and operated business in the Blue Mountains of North Carolina. We have been serving select garden centers and independent retailers across America for over fifty years.
The Cartner Christmas Tree Farm has been growing high quality Fraser fir Christmas trees for wholesale and choose and cut customers since being founded in 1959 by Sam and Margaret Cartner. The farm is now managed by Sam Sr. and his three sons, David, Jim, and Sam Jr.
David Cartner is a lawyer and practices with his wife in Asheville, NC. On the farm, David is responsible for sales and shipping logistics.
Jim Cartner owns and operates a veterinarian clinic in Statesville, NC. Jim visits the farm throughout the year and assists with order loading during harvest.
Sam Cartner is a veterinarian and Director of the Animal Resources Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He makes frequent trips to the farm and visits customers throughout the year.
Ronnie Beam is the Field Manager. He implements the production aspects of the farm and is directly responsible for selection and tagging as well as equipment maintenance.
“Fraser Firs have become the first choice among our customers for cut trees. We began selling Fraser Firs from the Cartner Family Farms nearly 20 years ago. Although there are frasers everywhere, the quality does not compare to the Cartner’s trees.”
