The 2012 Minnesota State Fair Christmas Tree Competition is complete. Congratulations to all who participated. This year's top honors go to Ken Olson (pictured on the left) and Happy Land Tree Farms. His 7 to 9 foot White Spruce (not the tree pictured to the left) was judged to be the best in show this year, being selected as the Grand Champion.
The competition is open to all even if you don't grow Christmas trees. Click on the link below to see information about exhibiting.
The State Fair also offers a wonderful opportunity for the growers that volunteer to meet and interact with the consumer.
