About Meert Tree Farm

Meert Tree Farm was founded in Oakville by Domien Meert and his father in 1963 on 6 acres of land. Initially, the farm was only advertised by word of mouth throughout the local community. Domien, his wife, Eileen, and their 6 children eventually outgrew that location, and they expanded to 150 acres in Festus in 1980 after interest grew exponentially. In 2003, the Meerts closed the Oakville farm and began their new adventure at the Festus location.

Sadly, Domien Meert passed away in November 2016, with Eileen following in June of 2023. Their daughter, Jennifer, now runs the day-to-day operations of the farm along with the help of her siblings and Domien & Eileen's grandchildren. 

Meert Tree Farm offers Cut Your Own Christmas Tree, a Sunflower Maze and Pick Your Own Pumpkin Patch. For the Sunflower maze we open mid July and are typically open for 4 weeks; Wednesday through Sunday. For Pumpkin Season, we are open every Wednesday through Sunday, beginning the last Wednesday in September, ending the last weekend in October. For Christmas Tree Season, our cut-your-own and pre-cut Christmas trees fields will open November 29th, 2024. The Christmas shop is open 7 days a week starting the day after Thanksgiving. We offer exciting tractor rides to the fields, an adventurous corn maze during the pumpkin season, and a fun-filled children's train ride at Christmas time at no cost to our customers. Check out our Christmas store filled with handcrafted wreaths, centerpieces, and thousands of fall and Christmas decorations. We hope to see you soon!

From our family to yours - happy holidays!
