Mid America Christmas Tree Association, (MACT)
2020 Summer Meeting
The 2020 MACT Summer Meeting
will be held July 24 & 25, 2020
at Dull's Tree Farm in Thorntown, Indiana
Tom and Kerry Dull and we moved into our historic 1800s Boone County farmstead a mile west of Ind. 39 when we were married in 1982. At the time, the big old post-and-beam house overlooked fields of corn and soybeans.
That first Christmas, we drove 30 miles to pick out our Christmas tree. It was the beginning of a tradition we now share with our own family as well as thousands of families who make a visit to Dull's Tree Farm to celebrate Christ's birth.
In 1985 we decided to try growing Christmas trees on the gentle slopes around our homestead. We planted 200 Scotch pines that first year.
When they survived, we figured we must be doing something right so from 1985 to 1992, we planted and tended our trees, sweating in the hot June sun to shear them to the perfect shape, and looking forward to being able to cut our Christmas tree from our own farm.
In the fall of 2013, our son Lucas left a job as an engineer to pursue his passion for agritourism. He and his wife Dana came back to join the farming operation and helped grow the business by adding a fall season consisting of u-pick pumpkins, a corn maze, and many other entertaining activities for people to enjoy.
Our fall season, known as Dulls’ Pumpkin Harvest, officially started in 2014 and has provided many families and school children with engaging fall fun and education on the farm during the month of October.
Our mission is to be the best stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us while providing our visitors with high quality agricultural products in a friendly environment where educational and memorable experiences abound.
