Tours take place when it gets dark.; young children who do not look through the telescopes are admitted for free.

During the Explore the Stars tour, knowledgeable astroguides at Mark’s Tree Farm point their telescopes at celestial bodies such as Saturn, Jupiter, the moon, galaxies, nebulae, and red supergiant stars. Mark himself leads intimate groups of curious stargazers through the vast expanses of outer space, using large telescopes and high-powered laser pointers to draw attention to cosmic structures and the man in the moon’s sideburns. On the 90-minute tour, guests recline with blankets in comfortable lounge chairs in an enclosed viewing area with no top to provide unobstructed gazing. Although viewings depend on conditions, Mark promises an up-close view of at least four celestial bodies and a 100% refund for tours not completed due to weather and inability to reschedule.

Mark's Tree Farm

Although its name does hint at the long, sharp-scented ranks of Christmas trees, Mark's Tree Farm acts as a gateway to many more of nature's marvels. In tribute to the powers of Mother Earth, Mark grows the trees without the use of any chemicals. The expert stargazer also invites groups to follow his laser pointer and the aim of his telescope during astronomy tours on the farm's enclosed viewing space.

Among the whispering leaves, the sharp tang of evergreen boughs mixes with the aromas of hickory and apple wood in the cooling air. Mark lubricates all of his cutting tools, which slice chips and chunks for smoking meats with canola oil, rather than petroleum-based lubricants that can carry carcinogens. He also packages firewood in custom lengths to fit in different stoves and underwhelming time capsules.

Customer Reviews

Not only to bring binoculars and warm clothing, bring a pillow to lean your head on on the seat back while looking up to the sky. Also, download an app that you can point phone to sky and it tells you all the constellations based in your location.
