For John and Cynthia Curtis, the owners of Perfect Christmas Tree Farm, it’s ‘tree love.’ This husband and wife team run the 40-acre farm together. He works the land, planting shaping and harvesting the trees.
John is a director on the board of NJ Christmas Tree Growers Association and past director of the National Christmas Tree Association. John won many of 1st prize ribbons in state-wide completion. His trees decorated the Governor’s Residence, Drumthwacket, in Princeton, the Southern Mansion in Cape May and many other historic buildings. He donates his trees to Churches wherever he lives, and has done so since the 1960’s.
Cynthia decorates the house and stocks the wreaths and garland and Christmas Shop. She creates special events and celebrations including Sukkot, a Jewish harvest holiday. She invites the community to a free dinner served in a Sukkah, for 7 night starting Oct 16, 2016.
Cynthia is also a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. When she invites the community in for a laugh, Perfect Christmas Tree Farm becomes the Funny Farm.
Perfect Christmas Tree Farm is a small part of the vast William Penn Land Grant of 1681. The historic piece of land has always been a farm. Before Christmas trees, beef cattle grazed here. Exotic evergreens that are rarely grown in NJ benefit from the farm’s loam soil that is rich in organic matter. Farmer John grows more than 40 varieties of Christmas trees.
Perfect Christmas Tree Farm considers all aspects of the Christmas tree business, from planting seedlings to recycling discarded trees after Christmas. Preserving the rich land and the historic house is the Curtis’ mission.

We harvest our own greens. We make our own swags. We decorate our own wreaths. You can have one made to order. Our 75 ft rolls of garland are made with white pine or cedar or a combination of pine and cedar. We select the garland for freshness, so it looks good for the entire holiday. For no extra charge, we will dip your wreath, swag or garland in Wilt-pruf, an anti-transpirant, which protects greens against windburn.
